Contact: 01223 300085
Combined Actors Of Cambridge was formed in 1965 after a public meeting at the Arts Theatre. Its original purpose was twofold: first, to provide opportunities for members of local amateur dramatic societies to combine to present performances which, for one reason or another, were beyond the resources of individual groups. Secondly, to demonstrate that local talent was of a sufficiently high standard to warrant a theatre of its own (something amateur companies in the city are still waiting for).
A group of individuals funded (to the princely sum of 1 each) the first production, John Dighton's MAN ALIVE, which was presented at the ADC Theatre. After the first few years the original name, Combined Amateurs Of Cambridge, was changed to Combined Actors. Further developments included the staging of open-air Summer shows in college gardens and the use of various theatres in Cambridge. The society has also produced plays for a number of drama festivals, including the annual Cambridge One Act Drama Festival.
Combined Actors has no formal membership. Instead, it acts as a production company and is administered by a General Committee which is elected annually at an open meeting. Combined Actors of Cambridge Archive Combinations

88 London Road, Stapleford, Cambridge CB22 5DR

 

Corkscrew Theatre Company was set up by mother and son Lesley and Bobby Ford and colleague Adam Bonner in Cambridge in 2014 to put on a production of Jason Robert Brown's 'Last Five Years'. Since then we have taken on a number of other small scale shows and hope to continue to be a platform for actors, directors and writers to come together to tell a story.
We aim to bring together dynamic and talented practitioners - actors, directors, producers, musicians, technicians and writers.
We aim to deliver fresh and exciting opportunities to produce shows and plays for all ages and levels of experience but ALWAYS with an emphasis on quality, artist development and attention to detail.
We aim to entertain, tell stories and engage with audiences old and new.
We aim to provide opportunities to share, teach and learn. Drawing on the experienced people we know and discovering the fresh ideas of those we don't.
And we aim to do all of this while having the most fun possible!

Cambridge

The Cambridge Festival Players, an amateur dramatics and amateur musicals group, welcome anyone interested in joining the society. We work hard to stage quality amateur shows, but have a great time whilst we are doing it. We hold social events for the group all through the year (although most of them are concentrated around the rehearsal and show period), including a small cabaret-style concert, Christmas party, quizzes, annual dinner, the AGM and trips to see other amateur and professional groups.
The society changes a lot from year to year, and varies its director and production team each show. This gives us a fresh feel for every new musical production, and makes the atmosphere in the group friendly and welcoming. In fact the group usually changes around a third of the cast between each production, although this often includes some people who come back after gaps of a year or two. Our auditions policy is also very open-minded, with new members sometimes taking principal roles - enabling us to make use of the best of the amateur dramatics talent in the Cambridge area. The group is made up of members from all over the Cambridgeshire and Essex area. Although we rehearse and perform in Cambridge, society members regularly travel from as far afield as Peterborough, Ely and Saffron Walden.

The group typically performs one major musical show a year, in May or June. New member and principal auditions take place many weeks before the rehearsal period starts. These are in a friendly atmosphere, in front of a small panel of some of the production team and a few other society members. This usually involves singing a song of your choice (for chorus and new member auditions) or singing set songs, reading set lib and perhaps a little dancing for principal auditions.
We have a rehearsal period of around twelve weeks, with rehearsals three times a week (two for chorus and one for principals), at the end of which we stage six performances. These are presently held at the ADC Theatre or the Mumford Theatre, delightful venues based in central Cambridge, seating between 230-270 people, with modern technical facilities.
We perform with a live orchestra made up of some of the best semi-professional musicians in the Cambridge area, and have a back-stage crew of Penguins (the local Cambridge amateur back-stage society), theatre staff, costume, make-up and hair, props, lighting and sound teams.
The group has been very successful over the past few years, performing Cambridgeshire premieres of exciting and challenging shows such as 'Singin' in the Rain', 'Crazy for You' and the newly released musicals, 'Jekyll and Hyde' and 'The Witches of Eastwick'. We have received several accolades for our performances: our 2008 production of 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' and our 2002 production of 'Oklahoma!' won the National Operatics and Dramatics Association (NODA) awards for Best Musical and Best Show in the area. 'Oklahoma' and 'Hello, Dolly!' also secured the Combinations Best Musical award.
If you would like any further information about the group or are interested in joining, please contact us via our website or Twitter page or secretary@festivalplayers.org We will be happy to help!

Girton

 

Girton Operatic is based in the village of Girton near Cambridge and is an active group of singers, musicians and back stage crew.
Girton Operatic was founded in 1989 by a group of enthusiasts, many of whom had children at the village school. The first show was The Gondoliers by W.S.Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan, which was performed in Girton Glebe School Hall in the spring of 1990.
Since that time the group has produced a fully staged production of a musical show (including an orchestra) every year. Other musical events take place during the year- for example a charity concert takes place each summer, usually in the parish church.

If you would like to reserve tickets for our next show please email the Box Office at tickets@girtonoperatic.org.uk
Over the years we have lent items of scenery, staging and props to various "not for profit" oragnisations, such as schools, churches and charities. We usually ask for a small donation towards one of our nominated charities. At the moment these donations are going to the Friends of Girton Glebe. To view the latest version of our inventory click here.
