My wife and I went to an amateur dramatic comedy production at this theatre and we were impressed with the venue. (The show was great too but that is another matter). They put on a wide range of productions featuring the best local talent. The auditorium seats just over 200 with comfy seating and (as far as I could see)... More

We booked on a whim as we had a free evening in Cambridge. We knew nothing about the play. Tickets were extremely reasonable and the play was off the chain! Absolutely amazing, brilliantly acted and completely hilarious. Full house which made for a brilliant atmosphere .

A small but smart theatre, offering a variety of shows in a very pleasant building, with a well-stocked, comfortable bar. The show, by a local amateur company, was very well-performed.

Having enjoyed performances by several companies from Cambridge at the Edinburgh Fringe over recent years we knew the high quality of productions. However this was our first visit to ADC and we were very impressed by the professionalism show both on stage and front of house. Comfortable seats provided good sightlines and ticket prices were very fair. The production was... More

We love this theatre as it is very welcoming and although it is on the small side it is very accessible and has some great artists here.

Saw an excellent production of 1984 here which far exceeded my expectations. Lovely little theatre with good facilities and pleasant staff. Although the seats are comfortable, the arrangement is not good and some members of audience had problems seeing the stage. Good value for money and worth visiting

1st visit to the adc, great little theatre. Saw the BAWDS production of Dickens old curiosity shop. Great acting all round. Wonderful set. £10 a ticket, bargain. Paid £65 a ticket to see mamma mia in the west-end last week (awful set and poor production). This was miles better all round. Well done to all involved. Thouroughly recommend.

Went to see the Cambridge Footlights perform in their panto at the ADC. It was brilliant, the quality of the acting was superb and it is easy to se why so many big names first started their acting careers with the footlights. It was my first time at the ADC, it is cosy with a nice ambiance, the only downside... More

While in Cambridge recently I visited the ADC. It was a great evening. The theatre is quite small and the seats are not roomy but the atmosphere was just great. I love amateur dramatics and the enthusiasm of young actors. For me this is part of the attraction. I often want to see a play without paying West End prices... More

We attended the opening night production of The Producers at the ADC. Full marks for the show - the actors acted their hearts out. The staff are friendly and helpful. We'd booked our tickets on-line and collected them a couple of hours before the show - worth doing as the queue is quite big immediately before the performance. As it... More
