Over the years, it has become increasingly difficult to sustain the Festival without considerable financial risk for W!LD RICE. 2018 has been our most challenging year yet. Production costs have risen substantially, whilst government funding and corporate sponsorship have diminished.

This is where you can help. We need to raise $50,000 to fill the void left by reduced government funding and corporate sponsorship. And we hope that you will kindly consider making a donation to ensure the viability of the Singapore Theatre Festival.

Every donation, no matter how big or small, will make a difference.

All funds raised will go directly towards supporting the theatre talents of tomorrow. Every donation means that young playwrights such as Ruth Tang, Neo Hai Bin and Chong Woon Yong will enjoy the opportunities, freedom and mentorship to develop their plays, and present them before an audience.

About the Charity

COVID-19 Update (May 2021): More than one year on, the COVID-19 pandemic is still causing substantial financial losses and uncertainty for us and the wider theatre community. Our venue's capacity has been reduced yet again - to 25% or even less - due to strict social distancing requirements, and we have had to postpone shows and re-assess our programming as a result. This threatens the financial security of our company, staff and the artists we work with, as well as the creative output that is critical to building a future for Singapore theatre.

WILD RICE is Singapore's leading professional theatre company. Our mission as an arts charity is to provide an open forum for the shared experience of theatre: celebrating our diversity; reflecting on the problems and possibilities of our times; and presenting productions that inspire, challenge and entertain.

Since our founding in 2000, we have entertained more than a million people in Singapore and around the world with our stories.

Located in the heart of our civic, cultural and financial district, WILD RICE @ Funan is exactly where a theatre should be. In this new home for Singapore theatre, we will tell stories about Singapore, and welcome people of all ages and from all walks of life. We will nurture and empower artists and audiences alike, and together, we will build a legacy of artistic excellence for generations to come.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
