Malta Amateur Dramatic Club, Santa Venera, Malta
The Malta Amateur Dramatic Club (MADC) is Malta’s oldest theatre company and was originally formed in 1910 at the Manoel Theatre in Valletta. Despite the club premises being destroyed by a bomb in World War Two, the MADC is still going strong and now has premises in Santa Venera, that used to be the NAFFI bakery while the British forces were in Malta.
The first production by the club was Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp, a Christmas Pantomime and the MADC has put on a varied selection of play, musicals and pantomimes ever since, with only short spells of inactivity during the war time periods.
Although the British were the founders and stalwarts of the club, Maltese actors have steadily increased in numbers and with the withdrawal of the British forces from Malta in 1979, the club now relies on the Maltese membership to keep going and performing.
