Get Involved

We are the centre of Cambridge’s thriving drama scene. Productions at the ADC Theatre are entirely put together by students, amateurs, and volunteers.

From actors and technical crew to directors and producers, everyone is here to enjoy and produce high-quality theatre. Training, learning and support are at the heart of everything we do here, and we are set up to provide help and guidance to inexperienced users.

There are hundreds of opportunities to act in the ADC Theatre every year, and our productions always require dedicated production and technical teams. Whether you’re interested in acting, directing, producing, designing, stage managing, building, lighting, or crewing a show, new faces are always welcome, regardless of experience.
