Victoria Theatre


8 Empress Place
Singapore, 179556

onstructed between 1855 and 1862 and originally built as a Town Hall, Victoria Theatre is the older of the two buildings that make up this performing arts venue. The Town Hall was converted into a theatre in 1908 and was renamed Victoria Theatre.
Victoria Theatre is set in a black box, offering a seating capacity of 614 and the flexibility for the formation of an extended forestage or an orchestra pit when required. When the orchestra pit is in use, the seating capacity is 536. The Theatre is wheelchair accessible in the Stalls area.
The intimate space features a curved seating plan that “hugs” the stage, bringing the audience closer to performers. Cast iron components were taken from the old Theatre’s chairs and re-purposed into horizontal bands set across the timber walls to improve the acoustics of the space.
Adjacent to the Theatre is a suite, which can be used as a private hospitality suite or as an extension of the Theatre Main Foyer. Suitable for a maximum of 10 – 15 people, the Theatre Suite is linked to the Theatre via Door 3.
