In 1938 rehearsals carried on in the Village Hall but the show moved to the larger Bonnethill Church Hall in the Hilltown area of Dundee  In 1939 DMS decided to expand even further and it was decided to present “A Country Girl” in the Foresters Hall in Dundee which was later to become Dundee Repertory Theatre, but the call of war intervened and the show was cancelled, with many of the men of the company being called up. A decision was made that all committee positions would be held by the ladies of the company so that the society could be resumed after the war was won
