The Malta Amateur Dramatic Club, or MADC as it is commonly known, is Malta’s oldest theatre company having spanned ten generations. Established in 1910, the Club’s first recorded address was the Manoel Theatre, but this soon changed to 12 South Street, Valletta. Although remaining in Valletta, the Club moved twice more, first to 86 Old Mint Street, then in 1929 to 28 South Street where the Club has its own ‘Little Theatre’. In April 1942 these premises were destroyed by one of the last bombs to fall on Valletta. After the war the Club made use of a large room within the Union Club, which was, at the time, situated in Kingsway – Valletta. In 1957 the Club made another move to its current premises in Sta. Venera; premises which originally housed the N.A.A.F.I. bakery of all the British forces in Malta.
