Note: Due to the current closure of the ADC Theatre, we have extended the membership of all current ADC Friends by three months, so that the benefits of their membership will be available when we re-open.

The ADC Theatre provides an opportunity for students and amateurs to experience and learn about theatre in a professional environment.

The impact of the ADC on British theatre is vast. Our alumni include Ian McKellen, Derek Jacobi, Simon Russell Beale, Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Rachel Weisz, Toby Marlow and many more. Four of the five directors of the National Theatre started their careers with us: Peter Hall, Richard Eyre, Trevor Nunn and Nicholas Hytner.

The ADC Theatre currently receives no external funding and we are committed to keeping our ticket prices low and our bar affordable, so that both our student and adult audiences can experience and enjoy as much theatre as possible.

Many of our performers today could be the famous names of tomorrow. With your support we can ensure that they get the best theatrical training we can offer, with industry standard theatrical equipment, financial support for ambitious and innovative productions and an ongoing investment in our backstage facilities.

Alongside our existing ADC Friends membership, we are pleased to launch a whole new tier of our support programme: introducing ADC Fellows. As well as being able to join our loyal family of supporters as an ADC Friend, you can now join our circle of ADC Fellows for just £150 per year. Becoming an ADC Fellow allows you to get even closer to the theatre you love, offering all of the benefits of our traditional ADC Friends membership alongside more discounts on theatre tickets and at our bar.

Become an ADC Fellow for just £150 per year and enjoy:

  • Two free tickets to a show at the ADC Theatre (or Corpus Playroom) per year
  • 15% discount on up to two tickets per show
  • Special offers on selected events throughout the year
  • Monthly Friends newsletter
  • Priority Booking on select events
  • Invitation to Friends only events including exclusive backstage tours
  • Optional recognition in our seasonal brochures and annual report

Alternatively you can pay £45 per year to become an ADC Friend and receive:

  • 10% discount on up to two tickets per show
  • Special offers on selected events throughout the year
  • Monthly Friends newsletter

Our memberships typically offer discounts on the ADC Bar. These benefits, including £1 off ice creams, 10% discount for Friends and 15% discount for Fellows, will be available to redeem again from the point at which the bar is able to reopen to the public.
