Cambridge Arts Theatre is a 666-seat theatre on Peas Hill in central Cambridge, England. The theatre presents a varied mix of drama, dance, opera and pantomime. It attracts some of the highest-quality touring productions in the country, as well as many shows direct from, or prior to, seasons in the West End. Its annual Christmas pantomime is an established tradition in the city. For nearly a quarter century, the theatre was also home to the Cambridge Theatre Company, a renowned national touring company. The Cambridge Arts Theatre is also home to the performances of Cambridge University's Marlowe Society and Gilbert & Sullivan Society, and it provides a venue for the university's triennial Cambridge Greek Play. In previous years it also housed performances by the Cambridge Footlights and the Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society.
