Access at STC

STC aims to provide an excellent experience and service for all patrons who may require additional support to access our venue and enjoy our events. The term ‘Access’ refers to the ability to access any service and therefore highlights the adjustments made to support a patron’s journey to STC, our venues and performances. We are committed to developing and improving access through a programme of assisted performances and through our leadership position supporting the Access Arts Hub. If you have an Access enquiry please contact us at 6733 8166 from 11am – 7pm, Monday – Friday. 



Access Development Programme is made possible by Temasek Foundation and GIC.

    Singapore Sign Language Interpreted Performance (SgSL)

    Sign Language Interpreted performances are designed to cater to patrons who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing. In a signed performance, there will be a trained interpreter who will be placed in a visible position on or near the stage. The interpreter will sign all auditory elements of the show using Singapore Sign Language. Advised by The Singapore Association of the Deaf, seating is allocated for each SgSL performance to provide an optimal view to both the show and the interpreter.

    Open Captioning (OC)

    Captioned performances are designed to cater to d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing patrons. In a captioned performance, the actors' speech and technical cues, such as sound effects and music, will be described with text displayed on a screen(s) located near the stage. The trained captioner will operate each show live to ensure they adapt to the unique elements of each performance. Seating is specially allocated to provide an optimal view of the performance and the caption screen(s).
