Having been bitten by the theatre bug at a young age, Dwayne continues to believe in creating work for the young, inspiring them to keep wondering, imagining and creating!

Young Storytellers from The Storytelling Centre Ltd

The Storytelling Centre Limited is a non-profit organisation based in Singapore. Their core mission is to foster and advance the art of storytelling through performances, collaborations, artistic exchanges, mentorships, training and community outreach. They firmly believe that stories are storehouses of Singapore’s unique multidimensional legacy. The oral traditions of folktales, mythology, legends and fables are avenues for preserving, showcasing and developing Singapore’s rich and diverse heritage. Their focus is on ensuring the sustainability of the art form by nurturing emerging Young Storytellers.

ACT 3 Theatrics

Stepping into the fourth decade as Singapore’s first professional theatre company, Act 3 Theatrics’s focus continues to be children. Where once the professionals were the creators and enactors, today, Act 3 Theatrics endeavours to be the catalyst to inspire children in their hands-on quest to learn, explore, experiment, create, articulate and present.

What children enjoy most is the act of doing things. They blossom to their full potential when surrounded by a sense of joy, wonder, spontaneity and freedom.
