Each year ADC produces three shows at the Unicorn Theatre in Abingdon. An eclectic mix of modern dramas, classics and comedies. Every other year we produce our very popular pantomime.
Once you join the club you can take part in every show and activity. You do not need to audition to become a club member. There are castings for every production and every member, new or old, has the same chance of being cast in a leading role. All you need in order to be cast is enthusiasm and commitment.

ADC JUNIOR DRAMA CLASSES
Abingdon Drama Club (ADC) are now enrolling for their Juniors Drama Classes with teacher, Leon Witcomb.
ADC has been providing drama classes for young people for over 35 years. Leon runs the drama classes every Saturday during term times.
A combination of drama games, improvisation and scene work. A fun way to make new friends and start to learn the fundamentals of theatre and performance.
The classes focus on building drama skills including voice, movement, action, objective, subtext and characterisation. In-depth study of plays and playwrights supports learning, particularly for those enrolled in GCSE Drama.
Some of ADC’s former pupils have gone on to perform on stage in the West End, on TV and in feature films.
These classes offer young aspiring actors from Abingdon and the surrounding area a chance to hone their acting skills in a fun, nurturing environment while meeting other young people from a variety of local schools.

ABINGDON DRAMA CLUB | A BRIEF HISTORY
In December 1944, during the Second World War, a group of Abingdon people, some from the Guild of Abbey Players, decided to start a new drama group - Abingdon Drama Club (ADC).
Our first public production was London Wall by John Van Druten and took place in the Corn Exchange in the Market Place, in September 1945.
The first club meetings took place in the Old Carpet Factory, beside the Thames near Abingdon Bridge. In 1946 the club moved to the Friends’ Meeting House, located on the Vineyard opposite the then Row Barge pub. The present ADC clubhouse, in Marcham Road, was acquired by the club in 1960 for the princely sum of £1274.15! The clubhouse contains our rehearsal space, green room, set workshop and store, costume store and props store. It is also the home of our fantastic Juniors section, which has been providing drama education for young people for over 30 years.
Our paper archives contain posters and photos from every show we have ever performed but it is the costumes, props and pieces of scenery which have been used across the years that are a remarkable 'living' history of the club.
When the Unicorn theatre opened in June 1953, the first production was by Abingdon Drama Club – the 16th century play, The Two Angry Women of Abingdon by Henry Porter and directed by Alan Kitching.
Since ADC began we have presented over 280 productions.
