Welcome to the Arden Theatre Company blog, where we share behind-the-scenes stories and current happenings with you. You will hear from the Arden staff as well as actors and other visiting artists, and we hope to hear from you, too. If you have an idea for a topic, please post a comment about it. We can't wait to hear what you think!

Members of the Sylvan Society gathered on Tuesday, August 10th, treat just a week into rehearsals for Ghost-Writer, the new Michael Hollinger play which will kick off our 23rd season.  They shared a family-style dinner courtesy of Delicatessen in the Arden lobby and Independence Foundation Studio, complete with homemade desserts from the Arden staff.  The culmination of the evening was the opportunity to hear the cast read through the script of this brand new play.  Sylvan members will be invited to see the full production on opening night, scheduled for September 15th.
