Our theatre improvement project
Drawing on Club members' and users' skills will help us substantially cut the cost of Dibble Tree improvements, as well as raise those much needed funds!
The 'Dibble Database' is a growing record of the many ways in which members (full and honorary) and other theatre users can support the Next Stage.
DIY talent: Can you paint, plumb, hammer or saw? Can you help rip out the old? Do a trip to the dump? Brush up the sawdust? All levels of 'expertise' welcome!
Fundraising talent: Can you bake, make, create? Can you distribute fliers, man a stall, do a sponsored silence? Perhaps you'll consider being part of a small fundraising committee to co-ordinate our efforts?
The Next Stage can only happen with full club support.
Our club. Our theatre. Let's do this!

Our fabulous festive pantomime Sleeping Beauty will run in the High School Theatre from Sunday 4th December to Saturday 10th December 2016 (please note - no performance on Wednesday 7th December).
The plot takes place in the Kingdom of Ballysilly where the bad fairy, Zelda Blackadder, places an evil curse on the beautiful Princess Aurora. Panto capers ensue with double identities, dotty dames and pesky pigeons! Can the handsome Prince Valiant save the day and wake the Princess with a kiss or will Zelda and her nasty sidekick Spaldrick rule the day? Corny jokes abound in this modern version of the well-loved tale.
Tickets on sale in the Fobel from Saturday 12th November
Matinee performances at 2.30pm.  Evening performances at 7.30pm.

Venue: Carnoustie High School Theatre, 7 Shanwell Road, Carnoustie DD7 7SS 

Dundee Rep Community Tour 2016 - Spoiling

Spoiling Poster
Dundee Rep are back in the Dibble Tree Theatre with a one off performance of Spoiling by John McCann on Friday 28th October 2016.
It's the dawn of the newly independent Scotland and in front of the world’s media the nation’s Foreign Minister is preparing to deliver her first keynote speech since the Yes voters prevailed. 
Her speech should be outlining the new relationship with the now ‘former UK’; but she’s got something else to say, and she’s determined to say it.

At odds with her Party, they try to ensure she doesn’t drift off script and send in a Special Advisor to reign in the feisty radical.  It’s a brave new world and she has a decision to make; toe the line or take back control.

First performed at the Edinburgh Festival 2014, prior to the independence referendum, this humorous play offers an alternative insight into what might have been; an imagined moment in Scotland’s history...or perhaps a glimpse into the future?
Starts 7pm. Tickets £5 available now from Fobel 

Behind the Scenes

A few years ago the theatre club put on one of a collection of entertaining plays called “Deckchairs”.

This involved making the audience believe they were on a warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer. No mean feat for late September!

Although “Deckchairs” had only two people on stage at any one time, a veritable army of people had collaborated over the previous months to create that warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer.

They covered many areas and included:- producer, stage manager, stage crew, set designer, lighting manager, sound engineer, props, wardrobe, make-up, publicity, ticket and box office staff, front of house manager, the list is endless.

Without these people there would have been no show. So, remember, belonging to a theatre club can encompass many different interests, from simply going to the Theatre, through to set design!

If you are looking for a new interest, why not get in touch. And if treading the boards or making costumes etc is your dream then perhaps we can help make it a reality. Let us make good use all those hidden talents.
