We are delighted to announce that audiences for our spectacular family pantomime Cinderella raised over £18,000 for selected charities through bucket collections - an outstanding £3,000 more than the year prior!
To kick start February we are welcoming Downton Abbey star, Elizabeth McGovern, in Theatre Royal Bath's production God of Carnage. Yasmina Reza's play follows two sets of parents who meet to discuss their children's bad behaviour. As the evening progresses, the adult's behaviour begins to mirror their offspring's and soon, the evening turns to chaos.
Is the Pantomime for everyone? Oh yes, it is!
The critics have spoken and the reviews are in for our spectacular family pantomime Cinderella, and the press loved it! Here's what they had to say...
'Cambridge Arts Theatre's Christmas pantomimes keep getting better every year - so it's no surprise this production of Cinderella is their best - and funniest - yet'
'Will have you laughing out loud and dancing in your seat the whole way through'
Following a sold out run at Hampstead Theatre in 2017, next week the Arts Theatre welcomes Prism starring Robert Lindsay, based on the true story of master cinematographer Jack Cardiff. Ahead of opening night, we delved further in to Cardiff's life to find out how he became one of Britain's greatest filmmakers.
A sure staple in Cambridge Arts Theatre's calendar is our Pantomime Script Read-Through... Every year, to mark the start of rehearsals, the cast, company and theatre staff gather to meet each other and read through the script for the very first time. It's always a fabulous way to get to know the team and to celebrate the start of our magical pantomime. The cast now begin two weeks of intensive rehearsals before Tech Week and the first performance on Thursday 28 November, watch this space!

Based on Alice Sebold’s best selling novel of the same name, The Lovely Bones is a story of interconnecting worlds, the real world and the afterlife where the main character Susie Salmon finds herself after her brutal murder.
The Cambridge Greek Play is one of the most anticipated theatre events in the Cambridge calendar - attracting audiences from across the country.
Performed every three years, it is a tradition going back to 1882, many now well-known faces have performed in this tri-annual event including Tom Hiddleston, Ralph Vaughan Williams and James Mason. Ahead of this year's production we sat down with students Katherine and Theo to get a behind the scenes glimpse at this year's cast.
Next week we have the wonderful Victorian play A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde.
To celebrate we thought we would take a look at some of the ridiculous rules set out in the Moral Encyclopaedia and A Handbook of Etiquette for Ladies that you would be expected to follow if you wished to be considered a ‘proper’ lady!
Panto season truly feels like its on its way once our cast photoshoot is done and dusted! Colourful costumes are stitched, make-up is applied and our photographer sets up his equipment as our fantastic cast step into their characters for the very first time.
