There are plenty of stages in Cambridge, but if you seek an intimate theatre with good seating, decent prices, and a great atmosphere, look no further than the Cambridge Arts Theatre. Founded in 1936 by celebrated economist John Maynard Keynes, this theatre offers a well-rounded selection of plays, dance performances, and classic productions for any Cambridge audience.
The Family Pantomime
Each year at Christmas, this theatre puts on a family-fun pantomime show, an excellent event for people of all ages. The theatre also helps children from underprivileged areas pay for transportation to the theatre, so that they too might enjoy the magic of Christmas at the theatre. This year’s pantomime is scheduled to be Aladdin.
The Cambridge Arts Theatre is always thinking about ways to improve the audience experience, and discussions are currently underway pertaining to a potential remodeling of the theatre to provide Cambridge patrons with a new bar, café, and box office, while simultaneously creating a new studio where actors can refine their craft, making for even better performances.
Upcoming performances include Dreamboats and Miniskirts, Much Ado About Nothing, Thérèse Raquin, Blood Brothers, and Not I, Footfalls, Rockbaby. For more family-friendly shows, come see Aladdin, Charlie and Lola’s Extremely New Play, and Oklahoma! Tickets and performance dates are available on the Cambridge Arts Theatre’s website.
