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.

Members of the CUADC and Fletcher Players sit on the Executive Committee and coordinate and encourage the majority of student activity at the Theatre.

The are six permenant staff who provide support and advice as well as running the Theatre day-to-day.

The University Theatre Syndicate is a forum for discussion and decision about University drama in general, and sits above the Executive Committee. The Syndicate is responsible for annually reporting to the University on the financial and material status of the ADC Theatre.

The Syndicate is made up of representatives of the University, leading University drama societies, and members of the management of the ADC Theatre and the Cambridge Arts Theatre.

The Statutes & Ordinances of the University of Cambridge say:

"It shall be the main purpose of the University Theatre Syndicate to endeavour to ensure that the ADC Theatre is available for use and enjoyment as a University theatre, primarily for the production by University and College societies of plays, operas, and concerts, and the showing of films."
