Nairn Drama Club


The Nairn Drama Club is the owner, and resident company, of The Little Theatre.

Founded in 1946, in 1958 the club bought an old Salvation Army hall and a decrepit wooden coppersmith's shed for £450 to make a very basic Little Theatre with wooden benches and six ancient spotlights. Actors dressed in the Links School and ran along Grant Street in Costume.

In 1983 and 2004 The Little Theatre was rebuilt and developed to give the club and touring drama and music groups professional standard facilities.

Ongoing Activities

Activities include workshops and performances of drama, comedy, revue, musicals, and - of course - the annual Pantomime!

Additionally, there are a number of social events throughout the year to which members are invited, as well as getting involved as Theatre Volunteers in the running of The Little Theatre for both our own shows and visiting performances by others.

Past Productions

The Club has a vibrant history of past productions stretching back over seventy years, we hope to showcase some of them online soon.


Anyone is welcome to join Nairn Drama Club, whether you want to be involved on-stage or off, we welcome members of all ages and abilities.
