Het ADC Theatre, de thuisbasis van de Footlights

Cambridge University Footlights Dramatic Club of gewoon Footlights is een amateurtheaterclub in Cambridge (Verenigd Koninkrijk). Hij werd gesticht in 1883 en wordt geleid door studenten van de Universiteit van Cambridge. De thuisbasis is het ADC Theatre aan Park Street.

De club werd belangrijker in de jaren zestig, toen comedy en satire in Engeland hoogtij vierden. Een succesvol stuk in die tijd was Smokers, dat bestond uit satirisch nieuws en sketches. De club produceert ook andere shows, zoals Daddy Deal (2004) en Cracking Up en de tourshow Beyond A Joke. De bekendste satirische sketch-show van de Footlights is waarschijnlijk de "Cambridge Footlights Revue" uit 1981. Dit programma won de Perrier Comedy Award op de Edinburgh Fringe en werd in 1982 uitgezonden op de BBC. De spelers waren Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson, Tony Slattery, Paul Shearer en Penny Dwyer.
