Amateur dramatics Cambridge


At the heart of our activities are our twice-yearly drama productions - a play in May, and a family play, musical or pantomime in November.

We have put on some 57 shows since 1989 - building up numerous skills as directors and producers; in stage management, lighting, sound, set design, and costumes; and of course acting itself. We have received several nominations and awards from the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) East District 04S including:

RolePlay Won Best Play - May 2018
Mother Goose Won Best Technical for Set and Costumes - November 2015
84 Charing Cross Road: Nominations for Best Play and Best Technical for Set and Props
