Hola [subscriber:firstname | default:Theatregoer]!

It's been five months since Covid-19 plunged us all into curfews and lockdowns, cancelling our March production of "Lungs" on the eve of the show, and in July forcing the closure of our studios. Through it all we have tried to stay creative and used what we can to keep some drama alive here in Kuwait. Yesterday we premiered our second Virtual Musical for kids on our Facebook page and we continue to run online drama activities for kids daily through the end of August. Our choreographer, Nicola Bond, has also used her lockdown to complete certification as a Zumba instructor and we are now offering both Adult and Kids ZOOMBA classes to help you shed those curfew calories.

The support of our community during this bleak period for the Arts is encouraging and we continue to do all we can to see SIK through to the end of the pandemic and a time when we can once again gather together in an auditorium or rehearsal room and create magic. Until then we hope you will come and get involved in some of our online activities, or consider making a donation to help your Community Theatre stay afloat.


Next week we start a new daily drop-in class for children aged 7 - 14 who are keen to get back to some online drama. No script or show, just a fun daily drama class with games and exercises focused on building skills, developing confidence and keeping students engaged together.

Classes will run daily from 3pm - 4pm (Sunday to Thursday) and cost 15KD per week, per child. Find out more or sign up here:

First class starts Sunday, August 16th, 3pm. (Timings will change in September to accommodate school hours)



Congratulations to all students who took part in our latest virtual musical project. The Director's Cut version available on Facebook has already been watched nearly 3,000 times in less than 24 hours and is a testament to all the hard work learning lines, rehearsing and filming scenes that students did under lockdown.
