It's official... pantomime season is here. Yesterday the cast, company and creatives of Aladdin gathered for the first day of rehearsals and the script read-through - we can't wait to see this talented group of people bring this show to life!
Martin Bond from A Cambridge Diary captured some fantastic photographs of the cast in action. Take a look for yourself...
Earlier this week a handful of our sensational Aladdin cast gathered for the annual photoshoot. The camera was ready, costumes were donned and make-up was applied... and we're thrilled with the results! Here's some behind the scenes shots from the day...

This week, we have welcomed Copenhagen to our stage! Michael Frayn’s brilliant historical retelling centres on the stories of acclaimed physicists, Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr and their clandestine meeting in Copenhagen in 1941. Both men were renowned for their superb minds, and for the part they played on either side of the Second World War. On top of this, we also discovered that Heisenberg has links to Cambridgeshire, as he was kept in a safe house in Godmanchester in 1945.
With only a few days to go until Cambridge Footlights are on our stage, performer Harry Balden spills all on the creation of last month's Footlights Spring Revue: Crossed Wires!
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!
