Abu Dhabi Dramatic Society


Abu Dhabi Dramatic Society (ADDS) is one of the original sections of The Club, bringing continuous joy and entertainment to Members for over forty years. ADDS is one of the original, if not only, members club for Theatre, Drama, and Arts within Abu Dhabi, welcoming a variety of personalities, talent and nationalities from around the world and presenting a wonderful opportunity for people to come together, make friends and have a lot of fun whilst entertaining the audiences!

In fact, ADDS’ foundations are built upon exactly this: making friends, having lots of fun, belly laughs, and, of course, putting on vibrant shows and events at The Club for all ages to enjoy.

Whilst the actors might be the most visible part of what ADDS do and what the audiences see, there is a whole host of other people behind the scenes beavering away to make the shows the success that they are: technicians handling sound and lights, builders to create the set, make-up and hair artists and prompts. The producers market and promote the show within The Club and the directors are responsible for choreographing the action, music and dance numbers.

Thus, what you see on stage at The Club is the final product of the collective skills of a diverse and multi-talented group of people. From theatre productions (comedy, drama and murder mysteries) and monologues to pantomimes, there is something for everyone. Audiences range from intimate gatherings to sell-out performances of more than 200 people.
