A Last Look At The Drama Centre

Yes! It's true. Another of Singapore's landmarks will close on 15 Jul 2002. The Drama Centre in Fort Canning Hill, as we know it, will soon remain only in our memories. The closure is to facilitate the expansion of the neighbouring Singapore History Museum accessible from the Drama Centre through a back gate.

The Drama Centre was completed in 1955, the same year in which a nearby landmark - Van Cleef Aquarium - was opened. It was initially the Cultural Centre until May 1980 when it was taken over by the government and renamed The Drama Centre. 

In 1984, with the government's upgrading of the centre, the seating capacity was 326 and there were four multi-function rooms for rehearsals and workshops.

Members of the Stage Club of Singapore bade a fond farewell to the Drama Centre from 15 to 18 May 2002 with their production of THE LAST COARSE ACTING SHOW.

Many of us will have fond memories of the place as we spent some time there while we were youngsters. I remember participating in my school's annual Drama Festivals at the centre during my secondary school years.

I remember the fun we had those days. Yes. I say again - those days - because they will never come back again. Our memories of things past will never fail to be jolted whenever we drive past the Drama Centre or hear about it in the newspapers.

As I recall the past, I remember an old classmate, T. Sasitharan, who acted with me in two plays our class staged at The Drama Centre when we were in Sec three and Sec four. I am sure many of you recognise the name. Sasi has gone on to bigger things while I am still finding my way around.

It is sad, isn't it, that The Drama Centre as we know it will cease to exist soon, except in our memories. Why isn't there a place here in Singapore for the little icons of our young yesteryears?

For a last look at The Drama Centre, click HERE! Unfortunately, we are unable to bring you pictures of the interior of the place. We e-mailed the people in charge but have yet to receive a reply from them. We have waited two months for them to respond to us. Our story can't wait any longer so we have gone to press without those pictures.
