Backstage is a non-profit, amateur community theatre group dedicated to performing quality, professional-level productions. Comprised of members of all ages and backgrounds who share a common, dedicated passion and enthusiasm for entertaining audiences and the thrills of the stage, Backstage aims to highlight the talent of Dubai while raising awareness of theater and the arts. Formed in late 2009, the group has propelled itself into the region’s drama scene with fervor, having been extensively written about in the press, even being cited as “prolific” by Gulf News’ Xpress. Prolific they are with twelve productions in just over a year of existence.
Understanding our roots in a diverse community, Backstage mirrors the broad appeals and talents of Dubai. This accessibility and approachability are some of the key aspects which set Backstage apart from other groups. It has accelerated us to an amazing growth and we can now be consider one of Dubai’s largest and most noticeable theater groups.
