Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic ClubCUADC

Founded in 1855, the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (or CUADC) is the oldest University dramatic society in England - and the largest dramatic society in Cambridge. We're at the very heart of one of the liveliest student theatre scenes in the country. We stage an exciting and diverse range of productions every term, most of them at the ADC Theatre in Park Street, where we are the resident company. We regularly stage shows at other Cambridge venues, annually at the Edinburgh Fringe and occasionally on tour abroad.

For more information, see the CUADC website or contact the CUADC president
