Directors are the main creative force behind productions

Unlike other roles, positions for directors are rarely advertised on pre-existing shows; instead, directors usually apply to venues with a production that they would like to direct, and then bring in a production team after a successful application.

Information about programming at the ADC Theatre and Corpus Playroom, and details of how to apply, can be found on our programming page.


We open applications for student productions about half way through the term before.

For information on applying to other venues in Cambridge, as well as details of any vacant assistant director positions, sign up to receive the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club's Directors' and Producers' list:

If you have any questions about the email list, or about directing in Cambridge more generally, get in touch with the CUADC Directors' Rep.
