Welcome to the Dunnville Community

 

Since our first show, The Drunkard, was staged in 1973, DCT has been producing comedies, musicals, dramas, murder-mysteries, variety and talent shows for the entertainment and inclusion of our community.

Our History

Dunnville Community Theatre was first formed by a group of theatre students who attended Niagara College and saw a need for theatre in  our small town.  A small government grant allowed these students to bring theatre to our local schools and introduce the joy of live performance to children.  It wasn't long before the small group decided to bring shows to adults.  In August 1973, The Drunkard, a comedy by Raymond Hall was enjoyed by an audience in the open air - the show was staged in the bandshell of Central Park.

DCT's next show, Barefoot In the Park (Neil Simon) was such a success, that The Crucible (Arthur Miller) followed shortly after.  It was evident that there was a great interest in live theatre - The Crucible had a cast of 19.  Over the years, meetings were held in member's homes and in a desire to become more formalized, the group started drafting a constitution and bylaws.
 The year 1982 was a big one for the theatre.  It finally found a home.  DCT reached an agreement with The Optimist Club for use of their hall. In 2014 DCT vacated the second floor of the Optimists Hall and set up a temporary but happy home in the Dunnville Hunters and Anglers Conservation Club. We are grateful to them for making us welcome in their space.

The dedication and vision of many skilled volunteers has brought DCT up to a very high standard in performing arts.  To our patrons: Thank you for your support over the past four decades.  We hope to see you at the theatre.  Enjoy the show!
