Live Theatre in Kuwait

SIK Montage 1
SIK Season 1 (2012/13)

There is a long history of English language community theatre in Kuwait dating back to 1948 when a group of Oil Company workers named themsleves the KUOCO Independent Players and began performing plays in Ahmadi.

In 1950 Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) presented the community performers with a dedicated venue comprised of two old Nissen huts on Main Street that quickly grew into the bustling Kuwait Little Theatre (KLT). Up until 2012 KLT thrived but with poor management by the volunteer committee, asbestos in the KLT ceiling, and a long wait for plans to renovate the theatre affecting show budgets, SIK (Staged In Kuwait) Productions was created in October 2012 committed to keeping quality English Language theatre productions flourishing in Kuwait.

Over the past twelve seasons, even without it’s own theatre home, SIK has produced improv comedy nights, open mics, musicals, plays, pantomimes and kids shows, as a not-for-profit Community Theatre Company comprised of volunteers from all nationalities and professions.

Anyone is welcome to become a SIK member. Auditions for public shows are always open to new and existing members and, in the best spirit of community theatre, membership is free.
