8Days to go
Since March this year, when live theatre in Singapore was shut down because of the pandemic, theatre companies have had to cancel the rest of our respective 2020 Seasons and beyond, resulting in crippling financial losses and devastating the livelihoods of thousands of theatre freelancers.
Pangdemonium, Singapore Repertory Theatre and WILD RICE have reached out to one another over the recent months for mutual support, and have formed a bond over this crisis. In spite of our different styles, we share a mission to make a positive impact through the work we do.
While we continue to look towards producing live theatre again, we are striving to find alternative means of creating work. Your donation will help us survive and sustain ourselves through the uncertain future, while also securing the livelihoods of all who work with us, including the hundreds of freelance theatre practitioners we hire each year.
All proceeds will be split equally between our three companies. Please note that tax deduction is not applicable for donations made through this campaign.
Pangdemonium is a proudly Singaporean theatre company with a mission to tell stories that are challenging, inspiring, relevant, accessible and above all, of the highest artistic, entertainment and production value. It also actively nurtures new talent by creating opportunities for aspiring artists and technical practitioners to work in a professional, challenging and nurturing environment.
SINGAPORE REPERTORY THEATRE (SRT)
Now in its 27th year, SRT proudly flies the Singapore flag as one of the region’s leading theatre producers. The company’s repertoire includes critically acclaimed plays, like Art and Disgraced, as well as original Singaporean musicals such as Forbidden City. SRT is also well-known for its Shakespeare in the Park series, and is one of Singapore’s biggest producers of children’s shows. SRT was the first Singaporean theatre company on Broadway as Associate Producer on Golden Child. International collaborations include RSC’s King Lear, starring Sir Ian McKellen, and Sam Mendes’ The Bridge Project. Annually, SRT’s Learning & Engagement and Access programmes give thousands of people the opportunity to experience the magic of theatre – many for the very first time.
WILD RICE was founded in 2000 by Ivan Heng, an internationally acclaimed and award-winning theatre practitioner, and is today recognised as one of Singapore’s leading professional theatre companies. Its mission is to inspire, challenge and entertain audiences by presenting the best of Singapore theatre, both at home and all over the world. In 2019, WILD RICE opened its own groundbreaking performing arts complex in the heart of Singapore’s civic and cultural district. With a home to call its own, WILD RICE is currently ramping up its educational and outreach programmes as part of its ongoing efforts to nurture the artists and audiences of tomorrow.
Donations will be made in Singapore dollars.
1. Why are you doing this?
Our three companies—Pangdemonium, SRT and WILD RICE—have been supporting one another since early March. At the time, we cross-promoted ongoing productions that were in danger of closing early, and offered one another advice on managing the fallout from COVID-19. With this film, we want to raise awareness about the financial challenges currently faced by artists and arts organisations across Singapore.
2. What is the film about?
The Pitch cheekily raises the curtain on three theatre companies as they struggle to make art – and make peace! – with one another. It goes behind the scenes to shine light on how they are coping with cash-flow problems, creative differences and clashing egos.
3. Where can I watch the film?
The Pitch will be available from Monday 31 August 2020, 9pm SGT at http://thepitch.sg.
There will also be a virtual dialogue session on Monday 7 September 2020, 9pm SGT with our three stars, Adrian, Gaurav and Ivan, alongside director Ken Kwek. The live panel will be moderated by actor and former Arts NMP Janice Koh.
4. Why are tax deductions not applicable for donations made through this campaign?
We will not be able to issue individual tax receipts for donations that are split equally amongst our three companies.
5. Who can I contact if I have any questions about this campaign?
You may contact the fundraising managers from either of our three companies:
Clarissa Tan, Pangdemonium – email@example.com
Emmanuel Ng, SRT – firstname.lastname@example.org
Teresa Fu, WILD RICE – email@example.com

I love the work all you 3 companies do. So much talent, creativity and passion. The Pitch was brilliant and humorous, encapsulating the unique characters of each of you. Don’t despair in these dark times; so looking forward to the day when we can be back watching live theatre and your work again.
This was such a joy to watch - thank you for making this happen! Looking forward to supporting all theatre companies in person when the shows are back on!
Looking forward to when we can all be back in the theatre.. A big thank you to all those in the arts that have made CB for us more bearable. 💗
Ive always enjoyed the theatre scene in Singapore and the trio (SRT, Pangdemonium, Wild Rice) have featured heavily in my annual calendar. LOVE them! Lets keep arts going!! Cant wait to be back in a theatre!!
Heem Juay Tan
Hang in there! This too shall pass and theatres shall open again and we will all be able to feel once again the magic that phenomenal live theatre can create. In the meantime, the forced pivot to the digital medium sets you up for a much wider reach, hullo world!
Lee Hiah Lek
The Pitch was amazing and touching! Long live theatre!
I enjoyed watching \'The Pitch\' and hope a little contribution from one \'non-essential\' creative to another \'non essential\' creative will bring a little bit more light at the end of the tunnel! I\'m loving the collaboration! Though this may sounds a little cliché, creativity is not cancelled! May all of us pull through these challenging times! I look forward to seeing more works in the future!
We live to watch your live performances again one day. Soon. Chin up x Naeema
Press on guys! I am also not doing well in as a freelancer in the media industry. But I like to contribute a little token.
Li Ming Leong
You do add a lot of value to people\'s lives. I have missed live theatre a lot so hang in there! Adrian, make sure you keep those muscles going for us til next year!

I\'d rather drink less bubble teas now than for theatre to end for good.
Stay strong guys.
Can\'t wait for theatre to come back to live!!
“I don\'t deny,\" he said, \"that there should be priests to remind men that they will one day die. I only say that at certain strange epochs it is necessary to have another kind of priests, called poets, actually to remind men that they are not dead yet.” ― G.K. Chesterton, Manalive Thank you for what you do, have done, and will continue to do to remind us of all the joys and challenge of life and living!
Bao Qi Poon
Hang in there
Good Luck Guys. Let me know if there is any way of lobbying the Government for more funding. It would be devastating for me to have enjoyed the past 3 decades of Singapore Theatre Maturation only to see a tiny bug fell these three oak trees.
I absolutely love theatre, and I cannot wait for the time we can be watching live theatre again. Wishing the three companies all the very best in this difficult season, and may there be so much molding, rays of hope, life and fresh air even in the rough patches. We love and are waiting for you to return!
Great work people! Gets below the surface of theatre.
Kuah Beng Hua
I look forward to the comeback of our local theatre productions soon! Stay safe and stay strong!

I look forward to the day the theatres open again! Stay strong and Hang in there!
Loved this, and how you all laughed at yourselves. As a lover of local theatre, it was really great to see you guys come together. Keep doing what you do, you are essential to so many, especially in times like these! ❤️
Standing with you guys. See you when theatres re-open!
Thank you for bringing the struggle for \'non-essentials\' to light...theatre has a special place in my heart and I am really thankful that all of you are squaring this circle. Stay strong :) Hope this contribution helps.
Love the film! Had me chuckling even after watching multiple times, but also felt for the serious notes.. Stay strong you guys, looking forward to seeing everyone back on stage.
Hoping that these dark days end soon!
Don’t lose hope. It is always darkest before dawn.
Keep going guys. 👍
We hear you and hope to see you guys back in person on stage really soon! Don\'t lose hope and stay the course! <3

There are none so blind as those who will not see...We are here for the theatre world even if the state is in slumberland on this issue. Please let all workers know - thinking of them and all creative energies must continue to flow; our only recourse in tough and good times.... My small bit that I can do....cheers, Braema
Great engaging piece guys! Keep the lights on! Keep fighting.

Love you guys. Don\'t stop doing what you do - we need you to keep telling the stories that need to be heard. - Cara Chiang from CYC
One doesn\'t know how much you will miss something until its snatched away from you.
I am deeply appreciative of our arts community for its contribution to Singapore society all these years. I can\'t do much now, but I hope this little contribution will help our theatres go a long way. Best wishes from me to you.
Thank you for sharing your passion. Look forward to catching your productions live in theatre! Stay positive!
Art (and artists) is (are) essential! 💪🏻
Keep inspiring, and thank you for reminding us to have a good laugh at ourselves!

30:30:30 😬 had the best time watching this while serving mandated SHN in an ICA designated facility. Was grinning and tickled the whole time by the jibes at each other. Enjoyed this short thoroughly. Working in aviation and we are doing what we can, keeping our hopes up at the same time. All my best, thank you for this*
Hang in there, Pangdemonium/SRT/Wild Rice! I hope with these donations, you will be able to come back stronger <3 We are waiting for your return!
Thank you for all you\'ve done for our national theatre scene. Looking forward to returning to the circle soon!
Hang in there :)
I miss Singapore theatre and can’t wait for its return to a real life stage. Thank you for everything you have given us and for everything you will undoubtedly give us once normalcy returns.
Thank you for keeping a light on and for holding space for the performing arts in Singapore.
Hang in there :)
We can’t wait to be back in the theatre with you!
Congratulations on a fabulous collaboration! Edmund and Trina Lin
When you sing/act, we will be there! Hang on guys!
I no longer reside in Singapore, but in the years that I did, I really, really, really enjoyed watching plays/shows by Pangdemonium, Wild Rice and SRT! I miss your shows so much. I know the whole entertainment industry is suffering, and it pains me to think of how all your talents must go through such a difficult time. You really are the ones with talent, that shouldn\'t deserve to suffer for not working in offices or wfh like we can... I hope you will get through this crisis to come our even stronger and with more creative ideas. Keep reaching out for help.
Haven\'t got much to give but giving as much as I can to show my support for 3 great theater companies that have given me many treasured memories. Also giving symbolically to support theater in Singapore. Theater for me has been more than essential. Without it, I wouldn\'t be the person I am today.
3rd time I\'m trying to donate - hope we\'re both 3rd time lucky!
Singapore Theatre will rise again! Keep hoping guys!
Keep doing what you do - all 3 companies are an inspiration to us all and I can’t wait to see you back in action again. You are essential to so many. Xox
Having caught \"Earnest\" before Covid hits, and enjoyed productions from Pangdemonium and SRT over the years, immensely grateful for the theatre experiences and lovely moments all 3 companies had given to viewers. Hold on and can\'t wait to support you guys in person again!
Hwee Sheng Tan
This storm will pass. So chin up, together we will welcome the rainbow once more.
You all are essential to the heart and soul.
Thank you for creating magic and memories in the past. I wish all of you well and look forward to taking in your productions in the future once again. Hang in there!
A dollar short of $100 because I don\'t want the three of you fighting again :P Hang in there, guys! We\'re all waiting for y\'all to be back in Action!!! Fighting!!!!!
Moving to Singapore from London in 2017 my husband Chris and I were not sure what the live theatre scene would be like here. Since then we have loved loved LOVED the shows we have seen here. Loved “The Pitch” very much. xxx
Ma Eliza Wijaya
Hope to see you guys in the stage soon!!! It will be over soon.
hang in there.
Great Job guys, proud of you
Amazed at your resourcefulness and ability to adapt to the changing times! Have had some great memories at all your shows and can\'t wait to be back in the theatre again. Until then, pitching in in a small way and hoping you guys will persevere through the pandemic! Shared The Pitch on social media too, hoping that it reaches more people :) Thank you for dedicating your lives to making art that makes us laugh and smile and cry and think and feel and hurt and love.
Be safe and be strong. Stay the course
Because of you, our theatres will never be dark.

It\'s wonderful to see these 3 MASKeteers acting alongside each other on the same stage. This is a just small amount, but we do hope to see you all back on the stage soon!
Thank you so much for reminding us in this isolating and disheartening time that we are stronger together and we must stand together -- and not just theater companies, but *essential* artists, art professionals, art workers, and art lovers across all arts sectors. Also <3 the soulful throwback to Humpback Oak. Hang in there and we will see you on the other side <3
Keep the light burning ... we will all be together one day soon!
A great short film. Well done to all involved, Will do my bit to support, especially sending my best wishes to Gaurav, Charlotte, Tracie, Adrian, Ivan and Tony.
Li Si Wong
Hey Adrian. Ivan, Gaurav and everyone behind the scenes, You guys are doing a great job! Keep going, we need theater in Singapore and even more so to get people to consider a new narrative in how we can navigate this topsy turvy world. Watching this video made me tear, it reminded me of the wonderful theater experiences I had with each of your company and the lingering thoughts that got me asking more questions. March on! Cheers, Li Si A Singaporean living in Australia

Poh Yen Lim
Thank you for this tongue-in-cheek moment. It felt bittersweet but also full of winks alluding the world of theatre in Singapore and a note of hope at the end. My 18-yr old son has watched plays from SRT, Pangdemonium and Wild Rice for these past 2-3 years and you all have given him the taste of watching staged drama. Thank you for creating this passion in him. I’m heartened to know that my son’s first emotions of theatre will forever be linked to Singapore. Good luck to all of you : the ghost light which Ivan mentioned last 7 April is still on and will shine always. The show must go on. Love to all. Cécile
Keep your chins up, ideas flowing but masks on! Looking forward to the day when we can watch \'live\' SGP theatre again!
Lee Beng Chua
Theatre is so essential. How else is our highly-stressed society going to unwind and see different perspectives, gain new empathy?
The show(s) must go on!
Proud of You All and God Bless All. 🙏
Love your creativity! Thank you for continuing to inspire and entertain us even when it’s difficult with the pandemic

From a fellow non-essential, thank you so much for doing this! This is beyond fabulous!

Hsu Ching Tan
You are all absolute gems whose works help bring meaning to our lives and keep it from being bare — and particularly in this time, when we are collectively compelled to temporarily suspend most of the social bits of our lives to preserve bare life, the treasure that is the theatre is accentuated. Thank you for all that you do, please hang in there, and all the best to everyone at all the three companies — I hope this in some small way helps leave a light on.
Let\'s keep our art going! 💙🙆🏻♀️🎈🌈💪🏼

I have not been a regular Theatre goer. Used to watch broadway theatres when I travel overseas. Am glad for COVID which gave me an opportunity to realise we have so many wonderful and thought provoking local Theatre shows In Singapore. Thank you for all your efforts, and look forward to more shows from you. Look forward too to seeing more your companies’ collaborative efforts.
My last show was Wild Rice\'s Peter Pan in Serangoon Gardens and I missed it so much that their songs are on repeat in my Spotify! Keep hanging on guys! Keep fighting!

Hang in there, we need you!
I\'ve been out of a job myself since April, but times like these only serve to reinforce how much we need our artists to feed our souls. Doing the very little bit I can to keep the industry alive!

Loved the pitch! All the best with the fundraising and getting thru this difficult time.
Keep up the good fight!
Thanks for the laughter and the tears!
Keep up the good work and keep the faith! The rainbow will come and there is always light behind the tunnel. Will be praying for all these to be over soon! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Well done ya’all! Keep doing it! So heart warming to see ya’all come together for a production! 💖💖💖💖💖
You will be back!
As a foreigner and guest - an avid lover of the arts - living in Singapore I am so grateful to see such artworks coming to life and exist. This here is so much more what SG is all about, what I love it for, why I live here. So much more essential that the posh, glitter, glance of what SG is actually renowned for worldwide. This here is a grant glimpse into Singapore’s soul.
Well done all!
thank you and keep on keeping on :)
Love to you Tracie, Adrian, Gaurav, Charlotte, Ivan and Tony! We look forward to going back to the theatres soon.

Would love to be in the theatre with all three companies, but for the fact that I live with high-risk persons. Looking forward to the way all three companies continue to evolve, persist and bring much needed topics to the stage (on or offline). Best best wishes.
I grew up watching many of your plays and productions (yes from all 3 companies) and would like to share how very very much I miss going to a live theatre performance. Thank you for keeping Singapore theatre (and many hopes, dreams and passions) alive. Will be there to support you guys once theatres are reopened!!

Thanks Ken, Ivan, Gaurav and Adrian! A fan always! Charlotte and Hannes
It’s just 20 minutes but loved every minute of that. Best ‘non-essential’ time on something meaningful that resonated. Looking forward to more.
Thank you for the heart warming co-production Gaurav, Adrian and Ivan (in order of screen appearance, love the 3 of you 1/3 each)
Hang in there guys ! Can’t wait to get back into a theatre to watch you all.

Arts feeds our soul
Bad times will come to past. They may pass like kidney stones but they will pass.
All the very best and I really hope that everyone manages to get through these very challenging times. When funding was cut for the war, Winston Churchill asked, then what are we fighting for? I will always hold that view and I sure hope that more support is received for everyone!
Keep going guys!
I can’t really help much, but hope this small token of appreciation can some glimpse of light to you.
Wei Yin Chan
We hope to see the theatre up and running again very soon. You bring so much joy and thought-provoking work for us all to ponder so please keep it up.
Theatre is life, its there in our darkest times to uplift, educate, entertain and give us hope life will return to the new normal for us all. Its as constant as the northern star 🌟 more important than we realise, thank you for continuing to shine a light in these dark times ❤️
Thank you for bringing so much joy to everyone and I certainly hope that the arts gets more support from both the government and the private sector too. I have watched many of your plays through the years and will continue to do so, come what may. You are all priceless!
Continue to entertain us. Don\'t stop!

Love your fighting spirit. Please come back to the stage soon.
What a good idea ! these three world class theatre companies have provided some of the happiest times we have had here on this little island over many years ; from the Shakespeare in the Park series, through Adrian Pang\'s ability to reflect the zeitgeist in a uniquely Singaporean way , to Ivan Heng\'s panache and brilliance - we have enjoyed them all ! Long may you survive and in future - thrive :) The Ion Family
Keep pressing on!
