One of Singapore’s most successful local puppet troupes, The Finger Players (TFP) is a non-profit company founded in February 1996 by Tan Beng Tian and Ong Kian Sin as a unit of Kuo Pao Kun’s The Theatre Practice (formerly known as Practice Theatre Ensemble). Other founding members include Benjamin Ho Kah Wai and Lee Wai Ying. TFP started off as a children’s puppet theatre before venturing into theatre performances for adults. What sets it apart from other theatrical companies is its seamless combination of traditional theatre styles with human actors and contemporary puppetry techniques, its bilingual performances as well as active audience participation. TFP operates at the Cairnhill Arts Centre under the National Arts Council’s (NAC) Arts Housing Scheme.
