Operation Theatre (Drama)


Operation Theatre is managed by students who share a common passion for ‘Theatre ‘.

Under the tutelage of Theatre Practitioner Gloria Tan, the interest group has produced many challenging plays since its inception in 2005. ‘Lanterns Never Go Out’ and ‘Off-Centre’ by established playwright Haresh Sharma was staged for Reflections Arts Festival in 2010 and 2011 respectively. The members don many hats in all their productions, including student directors, producers, stage managers, playwrights, cast and crew.

In 2015, Operation Theatre collaborated with MediaCorp and staged a play titled “My Name Is Jamie”. Subsequently in 2016, the group staged ‘Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ for special needs children using Theatre as a form of Art Therapy as well as the most recent “Riley’s Rain” as part of the M1 Peer Pleasure Festival 2020. Since then, the group has been staging plays for special needs children.

With their passion and commitment, Operation Theatre has been able to establish itself as a group to be reckoned with on and off campus.
