About Us

Entablado Theater Company (ETC),

The first Filipino-inspired multi-disciplinary Theater Company in Singapore, focuses on edgy, Southeast Asian productions, events and educational programs. Its mission is to produce excellent, relevant and world-class productions in Singapore and Asia. Entablado aims to reach out to the international Diaspora by providing a venue of artistic expression for our new-age heroes: our migrant workers. As its maiden production, ETC has chosen the perfect story of displacement and migration: The Romance Magno Rubio, a multi-awarded play by Lonnie Carter.
