Previously known as Varsity Drama, NUS Stage is a young but bustling university-wide English language drama group that is constantly on the look-out for fresh talents and performance opportunities. The group cut their acting chops on award-winning works such as Life! Theatre Awards nominated play (wo)men by Faith Ng, Shiv Tandan’s The Good, the Bad and the Sholay, and the collaborative piece City Night Songs.
NUS Stage focuses its interest on building stronger foundations for a closer-knit community of theatre practitioners within NUS. Facilitated by leading Singapore theatre practitioners, members of NUS Stage are given the opportunity to train on a regular basis and attend workshops and classes with a longer term view of developing a unique voice in Singapore theatre.
Since 2014, NUS Stage has launched Stage Two, a platform where members are given the opportunity to train under a holistic curriculum with a close-knit community of theatre practitioners within NUS. Stage Two aims to craft quality theatre productions, nurture capable and creative theatre-makers, and develop a unique voice in Singapore theatre.
