The Anglia Ruskin Community Theatre Company works with industry professionals and community organisations to create and deliver top quality theatre projects, driven by a belief in social justice and arts for all.

All Drama and Performing Arts students have the opportunity to audition to perform with the company, or volunteer as assistant directors, producers or technical crew. Each project is distinct, but always involves external partners and aims to prepare our students for work in the fields of applied theatre, teaching, charity, the health and therapies sector, and the creative industries in general.

For more information, please email Artistic Director Heather Lilley (Senior Lecturer, Drama; University Teaching Fellow).
