Nine Years Theatre


An award-winning Singapore Mandarin theatre company, Nine Years Theatre (NYT) is dedicated to the creation of high-quality performances. NYT sees Chinese culture as the foundation of its work but not the centre of its practice. It believes in the uniqueness of local Chinese culture and aspires to recognise and celebrate the multicultural identity of the Singaporean Chinese through theatre.

NYT tells stories through live performances that remind us of our humanity. Since its inception, NYT has been invested in the training of actors, in order to create work that is consistent in quality. NYT strives to entertain audiences in ways that are honest and thoughtful. Its work is recognised for being accessible and culturally layered, possessing deep sensibilities that speak to audiences from all backgrounds. Fluid in scale and genre, NYT creates performances ranging from original plays and transcreations, to interdisciplinary and international collaborations. 

In recognition of its contributions to the promotion, enrichment and development of Singaporean Chinese culture, NYT was awarded the Singapore Chinese Cultural Contribution Award (Organisation) presented by the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre in 2024.
