Here at Cambridge Arts Theatre Trust we are continuing to adhere to the guidelines and advice issued by the British Government and Public Health England regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and we are monitoring the situation very closely. At present, there are no plans to cancel any productions or close our Theatre unless a specific scenario occurs. We will keep you updated on our response as the situation evolves.

Are you a young person with a passion for telling stories? Do you feel the itch to grab a notebook and pen to respond to the world around you? Or do you know a young person aged 10-25 who loves creative writing?
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!
