As a not-for-profit theatre company, Wild Rice depends heavily on the generosity of our Angels to keep doing the important work we do for our audiences, our artists, and our community.

If you share our passion for world-class Singaporean theatre, and if you believe in the power of theatre as a force for good and for change, please join our community of Angels today!

WHY WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT

Over the past two decades, Wild Rice has blazed the trail as Singapore’s leading theatre company. We have gained a reputation for presenting the very best of Singapore theatre while championing exciting new voices and artists. Every year, we inspire thousands of young people from the ages of 5 to 35 through our comprehensive drama education programmes. At the same time, we continuously strive to make our programming as inclusive, affordable and accessible as possible for people from all walks of life.

As Wild Rice is a Singapore-registered charity with Institution of a Public Character (IPC) status, none of our work is done for profit. Time and time again, our Angels have enabled us to do everything we do without compromising on the quality or artistic integrity of our productions. We need your help to keep going.

HOW YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

When you become an Angel, your donation will directly benefit our groundbreaking creative work, as well as our educational and outreach efforts. As Wild Rice is a major employer in Singapore’s theatre industry, your contribution will also go towards supporting the livelihoods of hundreds of freelance theatre professionals.

Furthermore, you can maximise your impact today! Donations made from now until 31 January 2024 could be matched dollar-for-dollar under the Tote Board’s Enhanced Fundraising Programme.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

To show our appreciation, we offer a host of Angel benefits to bring you closer to the drama. These include complimentary tickets, priority booking, special events like backstage tours, and more. As Wild Rice is a Singapore-registered IPC charity, you will also enjoy 250% tax deduction on your donation.

Last, but certainly not least, you will get priority access and the best seats in the house to our thrilling 2024 season – highlights of which include electrifying original plays like Alfian Sa’at’s darkly incisive The Death of Singapore Theatre As Scripted by The Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore and Thomas Lim’s riotously satirical National Day Charade. You will also have first dibs on the hottest tickets in town, when sold-out hits like Tartuffe: The Imposter make their highly in-demand return to the Wild Rice stage next year.

Please get in touch with us at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.

We also welcome any donations in support of Wild Rice. Every contribution, large or small, will make a dramatic difference. All donations above $50 are eligible for 250% tax deduction.

Thank you for your support, and here’s wishing you and yours love, happiness and good health this holiday season!

VOICE OF AN ANGEL

Julienne Loh, Angel since 2023

“My first encounter with Wild Rice was through a transformative performance of Emily of Emerald Hill. We realised we had discovered our Singaporean version of London's West End — a treasure right here in our city. That captivating evening left us both profoundly impressed, and we vowed to return for more of Wild Rice's magic. It's been an enchanting journey ever since. I became a Wild Rice Angel because I want to wholeheartedly support our local arts and theatre. Witnessing the passion, dedication, and creativity poured into each production fills me with immense pride as a Singaporean. It's an honour to play a part, no matter how small, in nurturing our vibrant cultural scene.”

“Returning to Singapore after 13 years, I was amazed at how the quality of shows had improved. I remember Ivan taking my children on a backstage tour and showing them the quick changes that the actors had to execute. I really value being able to introduce my children to the arts through Wild Rice's work. I became an Angel because it's critical to support local creatives. I appreciate how Wild Rice supports Singaporean culture rather than wholly importing shows from overseas.”
Anne Bendt, Angel since 2016

“I crave provocative and clever theatre, and Wild Rice provides just that. It’s a no-brainer to support the company as an Angel! Also, I love the special stuff Wild Rice does for Angels, such as the backstage tours.”
John & Eliza Bittleston, Angels since 2013 (and for another hundred years, at least)

“The education the world needs today is an appreciation of the fantastic existence we have, of the opportunities to make ourselves a kinder and more agreeable society, of what we need to cultivate in order to get every drop out of every minute of an enchanting and mystifying life. Wild Rice is ahead of the pack in achieving this – it has been the biggest influence in Singapore in helping a fledgling society mature over the past 60 years into one that appreciates quality productions, intelligent content and first-rate acting. The company is a University of Life!”
Henrik Savia, Angel since 2009

“About 15 years ago, I had the pleasure of experiencing a performance by Wild Rice for the first time. My first impression was overwhelmingly positive. What I especially loved about Wild Rice is the unique local twist to their productions, which add a layer of cultural richness and relevance to their shows. I became an Angel because I just wanted to do my small part to support the local arts scene.”
Prof. David Stringer, Angel since 2003

“What struck me from the early performances is how Wild Rice engaged the young. I have always gone to the theatre but my experience is that the audience was generally my age and ageing... So it was wonderful to see how the young were embracing it. WELL DONE INDEED!!!”
Usha Das, Angel since 2022

"The benefits of the arts might be intangible but they are also vital, especially if we want to build an empathetic society that's capable of thinking critically. It's important for those of us who enjoy the theatre to step up and do what we can to make sure it lives on."
