CTC actively encourages participation from people of all ages and experience. We would love you to consider auditioning for one of our upcoming shows or to reach out to see other ways that you can become involved.

We will be launching a new Youth Theatre membership scheme. This is your chance to become a youth member of the company. 

CTC is offering a fantastic opportunity for young performers aged 9-21 years to develop their performing skills and gain new ones, whilst working with experienced professionals as part of our new Cambridge Youth Theatre by CTC strand, with performance opportunities across the year.

Joining Cambridge Youth Theatre by CTC provides the following annual youth membership benefits:

  • Reduced fees on holiday projects

  • Exclusive access to industry workshops and courses
