Sands Theatre (Grand Theater)
This theater inside the Marina Bay Sands, one of Singapore’s most iconic and luxurious hotels, can seat 2,155 people on three separate levels, all with excellent views of the stage. The rotating schedule of events at the Sands Theatre includes some of the world’s most popular productions and musicals.
Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
Popular shows at the Sands Theatre often sell out, so it’s a good idea to book tickets well in advance. The dozens of dining options housed within the same hotel, ranging from casual eateries to fine dining from celebrity chefs, makes it convenient to grab dinner before or after your show. Special ticket packages include pre and post-show menus at some of the hotel’s most popular restaurants, located adjacent to the theater. Continue your night out with a visit to the neighboring Marquee Nightclub, which hosts live DJs on most nights, or Avenue Lounge, a quiet spot for cocktails and bar bites.

- Pre-purchased tickets can be presented as e-tickets on a smartphone; no printing required.
- The theater is wheelchair accessible.
- Bring a sweater or light jacket, as air conditioning is often cranked up during performances.

Theater in Singapore As Singapore’s relatively young theater scene continues to grow, visitors have more and more options to choose from. Big shows and blockbuster musicals tend to run at the Sands Theatre, while several local theater companies, including the Checkpoint Theatre and Pangdemonium, host a few different productions throughout the year. Annual events, like the Singapore Theatre Festival, Singapore Fringe Festival, and Shakespeare in the Park series showcase even more local and international talent.
