The Theatre Practice

The Theatre Practice

The Theatre Practice (TTP) is the longest-standing professional bilingual theatre group in Singapore.


In 1965, theatre doyen Kuo Pao Kun and dancer/choreographer Goh Lay Kuan founded Singapore Performing Arts School, The Theatre Practice’s earliest incarnation.

Over the last 51 years, TTP has presented and collaborated in over 300 productions ranging from classics embodying Singapore’s diverse cultural backgrounds, to lauded Chinese musicals and experimental works focused on exploring an alternative voice in theatre. TTP also produces the Chinese Theatre Festival which showcases local and overseas black box theatre works, playing an active role in strengthening the foothold of Chinese theatre on an international arena.

TTP is also the earliest group to offer arts education in Singapore. 

In 1994, it started the Student Theatre Exposure Project which was later renamed as TTP Education Project. This programme focus on bringing the theatre arts into the schools, inspiring students to think creatively and critically. TTP is also the organizer of National Story Challenge - an original improvisational storytelling competition on a national level.

In 2013, TTP launched The Practice Lab - a branch of the main company; a motley crew of artists focusing on pushing artistic boundaries, and exploring the fringes. At the heart of The Practice Lab is experimentation, devising and practice. It comprises of Actor’s Lab, Director’s Lab, Playwright’s Lab and Reviewer’s Lab.
