Musical Theatre Fringe Festival (MTFF) produced by Sing’theatre, is Singapore’s first and only arts festival dedicated to celebrating Musical Theatre that will run from 22nd July to 7th August 2022. With 16 shows, 7 workshops and 10 talks & events, this ambitious new festival has something for everyone. The festival shines a spotlight on local musicals, fantastic local & international performers and brings together audiences to WATCH, LEARN and ENGAGE in Musical Theatre like never before.
Are you a musical theatre fan? An aspiring performer? Or someone who has no clue about musicals? With MTFF’s extensive array of programs, no one will be left out and in fact, we guarantee that you will be spoilt for choice! Witness the incubation of original and local works with Tissue Aunty The Musical by CariCapture Theatre, Jack The Musical Read by Dwayne Tan, The Hidden Singapore Musical by Karen Lim and many more. Level up your performing skills through international workshops held by Natalie Weiss (USA) and Luka Anthony (UK) along with specialised Song and Dance workshops by the local 7/8 Musical Collective. Have a relaxing evening with family and friends at The Projector watching musical theatre movies and surround yourselves with the Musical Theatre Community at our Open Mic sessions.
To top it all off, our headline shows will be two showstopping Broadway fringe shows: [title of show] and In Pieces, starring award winning performers including Mina Kaye, Benjamin Chow, Seong Hui Xuan, and the next generation of Singapore talents!
Festival Artistic Director TJ Taylor shares his vision of festival as “Singapore has a thriving Musical Theatre scene but the genre has never been solely celebrated with a festival of its own. So, through this festival I wanted to shine a fabulous spotlight and provide a platform for performers of all backgrounds to share their works, develop their skills and increase the exposure of Musical Theatre to audiences in Singapore.”
“Audiences will get the opportunity to enjoy the Singapore premieres of international works as well as listen to many new musicals being written and incubated locally. This festival also gives many new and budding actors the opportunity to work alongside experienced professionals, which is a big step towards growing our Musical Theatre scene.” Says Joanne Ho, Musical Director.
“By creating the Musical Theatre Fringe Festival, we want to position ourselves as The Musical Theatre specialist in the performing arts scene,” says Nathalie Ribette, Artistic and Executive director of Sing’theatre. Through the festival, we hope to raise the appreciation of the musical theatre genre and enrich the local arts scene through education and shared cultural experiences for artists & the community.
The response has been massive especially for a festival that Sing’theatre is launching for the first time, so we are extremely thankful to all participating artists and teams for coming in full support for MTFF. Tickets will be available through Peatix.com from 17 June 2022 onwards so grab a friend or two and immerse yourselves in two weeks of Musical Theatre Pizazz!
