The CUADC/Footlights Pantomime

Every year, students from the CUADC and Cambridge Footlights produce an original pantomime which plays to sold-out houses for two weeks.

Every Autumn, the CUADC and the Cambridge Footlights produce a student-written Pantomime which performs in November and December. This is the largest show in the ADC's theatrical calendar and a great opportunity for an entirely original music to be performed to a sold-out auditorium!

The ADC pantomime has been a tradition since 1970 and have starred (or been written) by some of the rising stars in the arts world.
