The Clifton Amateur Dramatic Society, better known as CADS, was officially set up in January 2011 following a successful production of Wyrd Sisters in August 2010 which raised £1300 for The Prince’s Trust charity.
The society’s constituted aim is to “enable its members to develop dramatically and put on shows whilst having fun”. This goes someway to demonstrate our ultimate goal, which is to put on a variety of high quality shows that are enjoyable for the cast, crew and production team as well as the audience.
On top of productions, regular workshops are run by the society covering a broad range of topics (acting, technical, backstage etc) to facilitate the development of our members. A number of socials are run to enable the society’s members to form friendships which should hopefully feed through to the onstage performances!
The society is based, at least in name, in the Clifton area, however members are from all around Bristol. CADS is an open society and is always looking to welcome new members over the age of 18.
As well as cast socials organised by the production team of any current show, CADS holds regular socials to help our members get to know each other.
Past socials include:
- Quiz nights
- Theatre trips
- Lazer Quest
- Informal chill‐outs at the pub!
We have a dedicated Social Secretary ensuring there are lots of fun social activities to look forward to, but we always welcome new ideas – if you have a suggestion please email email@example.com :)
