Cambridge
Park St. Cambridge CB5 8AS

 

The ADC Theatre is one of the liveliest venues in Cambridge, presenting a varied programme of theatre to suit everyone's tastes.
We are the main theatre space for the University of Cambridge and, as such, we are the venue for much of the student drama which is performed during University term-time. The ADC Theatre provides a space for learning and experimentation, helping to launch the careers of such theatre luminaries as Sir Ian McKellen, Rachel Weiss and Emma Thompson. We also present shows by local drama groups and touring companies and we are the main venue for Cambridge Word Fest.
We usually present a 'mainshow' at 7.45pm Tuesday - Saturday, followed by a 'lateshow' at 11pm, with occasional Saturday matinees. To book tickets for any show, please go to the diary.
Our administration offices are usually open from 11am until 7pm, seven days a week, for general enquiries not relating to bookings, ticket availability, or discounts.

An-Other Theatre Company

Peterborough

 

Box Office 01733315684
From what began as a simple discussion between theatrical friends - experienced professional and amateur actors - from the local area \‘An-Other Theatre Company\’ began life in 2010.
With television attracting huge audiences across the country, and generally without cost, why would anyone even consider setting up a theatre company, one might ask, but others may counter such suggesting that nothing compares with the experience of live theatre and the possibility of audience interaction. We will all hiss, boo or cheer raucously at what is seen on our screens but for the actors on the box, rarely do they get the chance to thank the viewer for watching. In contrast, the heartfelt applause emanating from the stalls, lower and upper circle of any theatre makes for a great evening for all concerned.
There is so little opportunity, these days, and in this borough, for live performance however, An-Other Theatre Company aims to provide good old-fashioned theatre at its best with shows throughout the year, from drama to comedy - farce to pantomime, something for everyone! We are even open to suggestions from our patrons as a challenge for the future - be that from a recognised playwright or a new, blossoming talent whom we feel deserves an opportunity to see their work on stage, if it\’ s possible, and we like the challenge, then we jolly well expect to see you in the audience to attending the production.
An-Other Theatre Company is also looking very closely at the national curriculum for inspiration and the opportunity to provide theatre for the school syllabus is very much under consideration.
So what about our future? Well, that very much depends upon you, our audience, and your support. More theatres close down every day with the constant struggle to compete with television and, perhaps more important regionally, councils and local government, therefore, self-funding is a very important part of who \‘An-Other Theatre Company\’ are. We are putting every penny of our own money into this venture and are not reliant upon funding. And by that virtue, we have to ensure that our product is of the very best quality - with a mix of professionals and amateurs we are surely heading in the right direction. Why, because we want our audiences to continue their patronage year in - year out. ATC want you to become part of our family and friends. In return we will offer discounts to large groups and regular members who commit to our productions. Hey, the more \‘bums on seats\’ as the expression goes, the more opportunity for us to thrive and continue to provide great entertainment.
So, in essence, if you fill the auditoriums during each performance we should be able to continue to thrive and offer live theatre at a reasonable cost.

Barton Village Hall, School Lane, Barton, Cambs, CB23 7BD

 

Barton Village Hall, School Lane, Barton, Cambs CB23 7BD
Barton Drama Group started in 1981 after a group of local residence got together in 1980 under the name of St. Peter’s Players to put on a play to raise money for the local St. Peter’s Church. The play, “Murder in Company” by Philip King and John Boland, was put on for 2 nights in November that year. As a result of their success, the decision was made to continue performing and Barton Drama Group was formed.
On 15th and 16th May 1981 the first production of Barton Drama Group was put on. It was a comedy farce called “I’ll Get My Man” by Philip King, and back then the stage was much smaller than it is today. The Village Hall became a ‘Little Theatre” for those two nights with a stage measuring just 14” x 10”. Somehow this did not hinder the first successful production taking place and since then over 50 productions have been performed in the ‘Little Theatre”.
Over the years members have come and gone, but what has stayed the same is the good natured and fun spirit of a group who enjoy performing to an appreciative audience.
Out of those original members who started Barton Drama Group, six of them still remain active members, some of which are still committee members.
Barton Drama Group tries to achieve 2 performances a year, usually in March and November. The process of putting on a show starts with one of the group members’ volunteering to direct a play of their own choice. But choosing the actors to be in the productions has become harder and harder as members leave and others get older!!
Barton Drama Group is constantly looking for new members to join us and always looks forward to new enthusiastic people joining in. Most plays, comedies or farces nearly always need younger people and as there is only so much makeup can achieve, the group needs above all younger adults to continue on this great dramatic group.

Cambridge

 

Bawds was founded in1981 in Cambridge. Initially aiming to present productions of restoration plays, it was later decided to broaden the theatrical scope of the company by presenting a wider variety of pieces.
Now recognised as a leading Cambridge amateur dramatic production company we present three major productions a year and one or two festival or studio productions.
Bawds has no formal membership. The company is administered by an annually elected committee. We have an ongoing policy of considering submissions from local directors and open auditions are advertised for all our ‘main-house’ productions. For studio production submissions, open auditions are not always advertised as it’s left to directors to determine whether to cast by audition or by invitation. They have the option of submitting a production for consideration after having already assembled their casts and production teams. We also, on occasions, accept submissions for drama festivals but this type of production is only approved subject to available financial resources.

Cambridge Amateur Drama Group (CADG) was founded in 2013 to develop acting through exercises, exploring plays, and experimentation with different drama techniques in a relaxed, fun environment.
The group welcomes people who are new to acting and the technical aspects of theatre as well as those with more experience.
We value diversity, and welcome people regardless of age, background, or skill.
Typically weekly sessions consist of play reading, improvisation, drama games and role play. We have staged one or two productions each year including Wilde's "The Importance of being Earnest" and "The Internet is a distract... Oooh Look, A Kitten".
Our next production is the UK Premiere of Jerome Bixby’s terrestrial sci-fi drama, “The Man from Earth”.
We meet on Monday evenings 7.30-9.00 pm. We are a peripatetic minstrel group currently looking for a fixed meeting venue.

Cambridge

 

Cambridge Operatic, or CaOS to our friends, is a friendly and sociable Cambridge based musical theatre company who perform an annual staged production under a professional director, often with a full orchestra. In addition to this we try and perform other concerts throughout the year.
The society, established in 1910, has gone from strength to strength and enjoys taking on big musical and classical shows to wow our audiences, with the best of the local talent and impressive sets, costume, design and direction.
For many year’s we have performed at the Cambridge Arts Theatre and remain the only amateur company to do so. Many acknowledge our shows as being to the high standard of a professional company, so if you haven’t seen one of our shows, make this the year to.
We love welcoming new members to dance, act, sing or be a part of the show production. Each show is cast by audition (not nearly as frightening as it sounds) and details can be found on the Recent News page of our website or by emailing the Secretary.
We rehearse on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Castle End Mission, 5 Pound Hill, Cambridge CB3 0AE secretary@caosweb.org

Combined Actors of Cambridge

Cambridge

 

Contact: 01223 300085
Combined Actors Of Cambridge was formed in 1965 after a public meeting at the Arts Theatre. Its original purpose was twofold: first, to provide opportunities for members of local amateur dramatic societies to combine to present performances which, for one reason or another, were beyond the resources of individual groups. Secondly, to demonstrate that local talent was of a sufficiently high standard to warrant a theatre of its own (something amateur companies in the city are still waiting for).
A group of individuals funded (to the princely sum of £1 each) the first production, John Dighton's MAN ALIVE, which was presented at the ADC Theatre. After the first few years the original name, Combined Amateurs Of Cambridge, was changed to Combined Actors. Further developments included the staging of open-air Summer shows in college gardens and the use of various theatres in Cambridge. The society has also produced plays for a number of drama festivals, including the annual Cambridge One Act Drama Festival.
Combined Actors has no formal membership. Instead, it acts as a production company and is administered by a General Committee which is elected annually at an open meeting. Combined Actors of Cambridge Archive Combinations
