The ADC Theatre is a theatre in Cambridge, the oldest University playhouse in the country and also a department of the University of Cambridge.
The theatre is owned by the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC), but is currently run as the smallest department of the university, with four full-time and two part-time staff. It is a producing theatre with the CUADC as its resident company.
Many famous actors and comedians acted in the theatre at the start of their careers, including Sir Ian McKellen, Tony Church, Emma Thompson, Sir Derek Jacobi, Dan Stevens, Rebecca Hall, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Tom Hollander, Tilda Swinton, Jan Ravens, Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Redmayne, Richard Ayoade, Ellie Nunn, Simon Bird and Joe Thomas.
In the summer of 2018, the theatre closed for renovations. Air conditioning and new seating were installed to the auditorium, a small extension was made to office space, and additional points for rigging lights were installed.
The Beaufort seat meets the parameters of both space and egress regulations for the theatre and fitted perfectly into the existing theatre design with no change to the 228 capacity.
The Beaufort Theatre seat with its clean lines is an ideal choice for a stylish, contemporary aesthetic and is highly customisable. The Beaufort has wooden armrests providing a pleasing aesthetic whilst also negating the issue of fabric ‘wear’ to these high impact areas.
To offset the wooden detailing, the seats were upholstered in a luxurious deep purple plush velvet fabric.
