About Campaign

The Triangle Project was started in 1992 with the aim of providing opportunities for the less privileged to watch theatre. The Necessary Stage matches donors and charities with the former buying tickets to our productions for the beneficiaries. This scheme has proven to be very successful and numerous beneficiaries of Voluntary Welfare Organisations have experienced theatre as a result.


We hope to raise at least $10,000 from now until 20 March 2016, so that we can purchase tickets for the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2016 as well as our next main season production Manifesto, for 400 beneficiaries. With your help, these tickets will allow the beneficiaries to enjoy a night out at the theatre, something that most of them may not have had a chance to experience.

Each ticket for performances at the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2016 costs $25 (inclusive of ticketing fee), and each ticket for Manifesto will cost $38 (inclusive of ticketing fee). All donations will be tax-exempted at 250% for the year 2016.

About NPO

Formed in 1987 by our current Artistic Director Alvin Tan, The Necessary Stage (TNS) is a non-profit theatre company with charity status. Our mission is to create challenging, indigenous and innovative theatre that touches the heart and mind. TNS is a recipient of the National Arts Council's Major Grant FY2014-FY2016, and is also the organiser of the annual M1 Singapore Fringe Festival. TNS also has the honour of being the only arts company in Singapore helmed by two Cultural Medallion recipients: Artistic Director Alvin Tan and Resident Playwright Haresh Sharma. 2016 sees TNS celebrating its 29th anniversary. Having presented more than 100 original plays in Singapore and abroad, TNS remains focused on breaking new ground in original local content and intercultural exploration. For its Main Season, TNS produces an average of two plays a year at our black box and other venues. The plays are original, mostly devised pieces created in a collaborative process that is based on research, improvisation before scripting, and input from all members of the production. We are also committed to international exchange and networking between Singapore and other countries through the staging of the company’s plays abroad, inviting foreign works to be presented by the company in Singapore, through dialogues, workshops and training opportunities as well as creative collaborations leading to intercultural and interdisciplinary productions. TNS has also curated and presented the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival from 2005 to 2014. While we continue to be the organisers of the festival, as part of our new strategy to refresh the direction of the Festival, we began a rotating Artistic Directorship, with a new Artistic Director from the Singapore arts scene being appointed on a three-year basis to helm the curating of the Festival. TNS has also been unwavering in its efforts to nurture new talents and local content, through platforms such as the Theatre for Youth Ensemble, Playwright's Cove, commissions at the Fringe Festival, Theatre for Seniors, and most recently, The Orange Playground (TOP). TOP is TNS’ newest initiative in creative research and development, providing artists with an exploratory environment where risks can be freely taken within and with the creative process.
