Singtel Waterfront Theatre

The Singtel Waterfront Theatre is a mid-sized and multi-format performance venue prominently placed along the Esplanade waterfront. The theatre can fulfil a range of staging and seating requirements with its ability to transform into six configurations.


It can accommodate up to 600 people in its traditional proscenium theatre end-on setting and up to 700 people (standing) in a flat floor setting. Equipped with a manual fly system, and adaptable staging, lighting, and sound systems – it is purpose-built to meet the demands of a variety of events and performances.

Events at Singtel Waterfront Theatre

Esplanade has always been a place for everyone. Where else can you see performances of all kinds, from international productions to new talent, all in one weekend? I hope that the new waterfront theatre will continue to give these kinds of opportunities to everyone.
