Singapore Repertory Theatre

Make a difference to your career in the arts with SRT’s Residency Programme

The Residency Programme is a hands-on training programme designed to nurture the talent and potential of young theatre professionals looking to further their careers in Singapore’s theatre industry. 

Residents will work closely alongside local and international colleagues on a wide range of productions and programmes, developing their skills and understanding of their chosen specialities while participating in the day-to-day workings of one of the leading theatre companies in Asia. 

The opportunity to train on a live programme allows the Resident to set goals, review their progress and develop their skills in direct relation to the industry. Training in this format offers many benefits to career development, offering Residents diverse and high-quality work experiences that will support future employment opportunities. 

The programme is a full-time Earn and Learn position and may span 12 to 24 months depending on your experience in the field. A monthly stipend will be provided to assist the Resident with living expenses for the duration of this skill development programme.

"This residency programme is such an amazing opportunity for me to learn and grow as a theatre practitioner. I never thought that I would have a chance to be able to work full-time, learn from amazing directors and even be paid as well."

- Natalie Wong, Resident Assistant Director 2013 – 2014

"Being in the residency programme has given me an excellent opportunity to learn from many established local and international directors. The range of productions I have been involved in has provided me a vast amount of exposure to hone my skills in creating theatre, and learn more about the industry. What an exciting and immersive experience to be a part of!"

- Cherilyn Woo Resident Assistant Director 2014 – 2015

"For me, the residency was an intense but fruitful season being part of 11 SRT productions. The experiences were varied but rich through mentorship and learning on the job. While new knowledge and skills gained were a huge boon, new friends and an expanding network of collaborators launched me in new heights and directions for my career as a director. I also appreciated how my growth as an artist was important to SRT as were the responsibilities tasked to me."

- Khairul Kamsani, Resident Assistant Director 2016 – 2017
