DCT Home

Front page news! DCT is launching our production of James Goldman’s “the Lion in Winter”. A modern telling of an ancient tale. Heavily costumed and full of fascinating characters who have few redeeming qualities, this play is wonderful to watch and occasionally very funny. For more information: What is it about?

DCT’s Drama Camp was a big success again this year. We have been very fortunate in the excellent financial support we received from The Rotary Club of Dunnville and the sponsorships from Hauser’s Pharmacy and Wes Moodie Realty.

On Saturday, October 21, 2023 DCT will be hosting a Meet & Greet from 2-3 in the main hall of the Optimists of Dunnville’s historic building – 101 Main St E, Dunnville. We will be serving light refreshments and playing some very fun theatre games. You are welcome to take part or just watch. At 3 pm our annual general meeting will begin.

In November we will be performing The Lion in Winter

Dunnville Community Theatre is the oldest and only remaining Live Theatre group in Haldimand County and this year we turn 50!
To reflect our years of growth and experience, DCT has updated their Mission Statement to more clearly define our purpose and direction.
We have gone from: “Fostering interest in living theatre through the study, making and production of good plays.” to this new mission statement:

Our mission is to promote living theatre through the production of quality plays, the mentoring of future generations to ensure our sustainability, and the enrichment of our community through our contributions to this essential form of art.

DCT Constitution 2023

DCT is working on many different projects.
We are planning our second Summer Drama Camp.
We are applying for funds to update our ancient equipment.
We are actively working to help improve tourism in Dunnville.
We are entering a float into the Mudcat parade.
In 2019 we received Haldimand County’s Volunteer recognition award for Community Culture and to prove we are still worthy of that, we are planning a road show in Haldimand county for the Summer of 2024.

Dunnville Community Theatre recognizes the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their generous grant which helped maintain & grow our membership, our audience and our sanity, during the Covid years. Luckily (hopefully) that is behind us now and we can resume with our normal, everyday (yes I know we are not stage every day – stop being so literal) operations and return to a state of – I mean the stage of theatrical joy.

DCT is very proud to have been selected as a grant recipient under the Resilient Communities Fund. We are using this grant to finance the creation of our new website and to produce the video blogs which will be posted on it. The aim of this site and our Video Blogs is to entertain and inform our audience

      Just an FYI, tickets for dinner theatre must be purchased 10 days in advance of the event.

      I hope to see you there!

  2. FYI…
    The phone number on your website responds, “This number cannot
    receive incoming calls” 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

  3. Hoping for new and exciting productions for DCT. It is a shame along with live theatre, a movie theatre to return to Dunnville would be an added bonus. Operas, movies of choice.

    1. Hi Donna, thank you for your comment. We agree! In a perfect world we would have a Performing Arts Centre to show case live theatre, live music and movies. There are so many great artists – of every type – in this area a proper and central showcase for them all would be fantastic!

  4. I don’t even know hoѡ I ended up here, but I thought this post
    was good. I do not knoᴡ who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you ɑren’t
    already 😉 Cheers!
