Our Society

Dundee Dramatic Society was formed in 1924 and has been at its present location at the foot of the Hilltown since 1936. We are the longest running dramatic society in Dundee, and have a rich and interesting history.

From performing cutting edge plays that challenged Apartheid, to famous former members, a lot has happened in the past 100 years.

The Society and its members continue to run and maintain The Little Theatre. In order to raise funds, we perform four plays a year. Each play has five performances over a one week period. Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7pm, with one work night per week for set building/painting and technical preparations.

Whether you want to tread the boards, take on one of our backstage roles, or help front of house during a production, we are always looking for new members. If you are over 18, and would like to join Dundee Dramatic Society please click on the New Members tab for more information.


We are accessible for an audience – there is a ramp to access the theatre from the Hilltown side, and access from Eadie’s Road car park. The coffee bar and auditorium are on one level and there is a disabled access toilet. There is one wheelchair space in the auditorium. The member areas are not wheelchair accessible.
