Abstract: This thesis examines the evolution of the musical theatre form in Singapore between the 1980s and the 2000s. It explains how the Singapore musical has a distinct form, and tracks the genesis of the genre, and the themes that popular Singapore musicals explore, in contradistinction to the Western Broadway template (also referred to as the Integrated musical within this thesis). The Western Broadway template is chosen to be compared against as it is the international benchmark for the musical genre and the Singapore musical drew its initial inspiration from it. The thesis will also explore the contextual factors which enhance or constrain the genre?s development, and makes recommendations as to how the musical theatre industry could be further developed if certain variables such as education programs and government funding schemes were in place.
