Between the Bars was initially formed in December 2010 to provide opportunities for showcasing new writing and performing talent.  Our first full production was the musical Thrill Me by Stephen Dolginoff in 2012.  Since then, we have performed both new and existing works, in Cambridge and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, to fulfil our aim of discovering undiscovered talent.

After a long Covid induced hiatus, we returned to the ADC theatre in April 2022 with our production of the award winning musical Once.  There are few musicals which offer the opportunity for a fully integrated cast of musicians, singers and actors and we were delighted with the fantastic response to the show.  Here are a few comments from our audience members:

“A truly memorable show”

“We felt as though we were at the West End”

“An actor musician show at its best”

“It was extraordinary…the best thing I’ve seen in ages, and certainly the best thing I’ve ever seen at the ADC by quite some margin”

“A real privilege to see this – utterly beautiful magic”

Our most recent production was After Life by Jack Thorne, at Corpus Playroom, Cambridge in December 2022.

Our next production will be the play Wild Swimming by Marek Horn at Corpus Playroom, Cambridge from 13 to 16 September. We hope to see you there!
