The Drama Centre was originally built at Fort Canning Park on the site for the Singapore Council for Adult Education. It was was the key platform for local companies starting out in the early 1980s, staging Singapore plays like Lao Jiu, Army Daze and Mail Order Brides.

The relocation of the Drama Centre to the National Library building created an unprecedented synergy with the arts facilities, attractions, institutions and the commercial sector to enliven the surrounding area.

The Drama Centre adds to Singapore’s performing arts spaces with its 615-seat proscenium theatre. It also offers an intimate 120-seater black box, VIP lounge and function rooms to meet the diverse demands of today’s arts events – from mid-sized theatrical presentations, to intimate performances, talks and exhibitions.

The Drama Centre is a National Arts Council arts venue and is managed by Arts House Ltd.
