CUMTS Spotlight

Streaming tickets are only available for viewers in the UK.

Musical theatre is back and better than ever! Whether you're a newcomer or a veteran, Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society's The Spotlight offers performers a chance to take to the ADC stage and belt out one of their favourite musical theatre songs. Such high-quality performances in such a supportive, relaxed atmosphere makes this event unique in the theatre calendar: a chance to showcase some incredible talent both old and new, over a wide range of songs and styles, with a live accompaniment. No, that's not too good to be true (though you'd be excused for thinking that) - that's CUMTS: The Spotlight, and it's not to be missed!

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
