The ADC Theatre is the smallest department of the University of Cambridge. We have no academic objective; our main aim is to provide opportunites to learn about and experience theatre. Productions are completely student run, from actors and directors to set designers and carpenters.
The are six permenant staff who provide support and advice as well as running the Theatre day-to-day.
