About Us

Forfar Dramatic Society (FDS) is a local theatre group presenting live performances for people in Forfar and the surrounding area.

The Society was formed in 1930 and since then has produced more than 200 full-length and one-act plays for presentation in Forfar and as part of local drama festivals. The Society’s calendar has previously revolved around the production of 2 full length plays (in May and November) and 1 or 2 one-act plays (in February/March) which are either performed in house or as part of the SCDA’s one-act play festival.  Recently we have moved to 3 full length plays, one in November, one in March and one during Forfar Gala Week in mid June.

We meet weekly at our clubrooms, Studio 132, in Forfar town centre, and are always keen to hear from people keen on joining our society! 

Following the recent AGM, the following four Members have been voted on as Charity trustees and make up the Management Board for the forthcoming year:

Graham Hewitson – President 
Douglas Watt – Treasurer
Drew Barnett – Board Member
Tobes Hallett – Board Member
Christopher Hewitson – Board Member
Donna Mackintosh – Board Member
Susan Steel – Board Member
Sarah Valentine – Board Member

Forfar Dramatic Society’s regular club night takes place on the first Tuesday of the month (usually from 7.30pm) from August-May at our base at Studio 132, 132 East High Street.
