The University of Cambridge has issued an announcement stating that its buildings must be closed to the public from Friday 20 March onwards. Accompanied by the fact that all face-to-face teaching and examinations have been cancelled for students, we are postponing all shows currently scheduled until 20 June 2020 that were due to take place at the ADC Theatre and Corpus Playroom.

We are incredibly sad to have to cancel what would have been an exciting season of plays, musicals and comedy shows. We will be seeing if the student shows that we had set to take place during our Summer season can be moved to Autumn season 2020, and hope that the majority of these shows will still be able to take place when we re-open, depending on the availability and interest of the students involved.

This has been a heart-breaking announcement to make, but of course the safety of our students, staff and audiences must come before everything else. Art is an important resource for people to draw upon in times of crisis, and while it is no longer feasible to be able to stage theatre in the next few months, we hope to be able to use the ADC Theatre website and social media channels as a platform where students will be able to remotely share artistic creations that they are working on.

If you have a ticket booked for a performance that has been cancelled and would prefer for your tickets to be refunded to cash or card, then please email or call the Administration Office at 01223 359547.

If you are in a position to do so, we ask you to consider donating all or part of the price of your booking to the ADC Theatre. The ADC Theatre receives no external funding, so any support during this difficult time would be enormously appreciated. Please email or call the Administration Office at 01223 359547 to donate part or the full amount of your ticket.

If we do not hear back from you by 6pm on Friday 27 March then the value of your tickets will be returned to credit on your Box Office account. This credit can be used for future bookings at the ADC Theatre or Corpus Playroom made online, over the phone or in person at the Box Office.

We hope that you are keeping safe during this difficult time, and we look forward to re-opening our doors in the near future.
