Summer 2018 Redevelopment

This summer, the ADC Theatre embarks upon the next phase of our ambitious redevelopment programme.

The ADC Theatre is constantly evolving and updating to meet audience needs and industry standards. For several years the Theatre has been making plans to introduce a ventilation system to the auditorium. These plans were developed and formalised over the course of 2016-17 and we are now on track to complete the project this summer.

The ADC will close its doors for 6 months while work is carried out, but an active programme will be maintained at the Corpus Playroom. We will also be launching ‘ADC on Tour’, taking the resources of the Theatre and mounting productions in pop-up theatres around Cambridge. Our centrepiece production will be an adaptation of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, which will be mounted in the Temporary Exhibition Space of the Fitzwilliam Museum. Tickets will be going on sale later in spring.

When we re-open our doors in October 2018 we will have introduced a new ventilation system and will have installed two new lighting bridges, carried out repairs to the ceiling and made some cosmetic improvements in the process. This redevelopment marks the culmination of many years' work. We cannot wait to see these plans come to fruition this summer!
