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!

While working on Wanamaker’s Pursuit we heard about the importance of the Wanamaker’s store to many of you! We were fortunate to sit down with a department store historian, past employees and shoppers, >pharm and of course a few folks that attended the Christmas Light Show!

The video we compiled ran in the lobby during Wanamaker’s Pursuit, and is now posted here for you to watch!

View Part 1 of the video:

    My Pricilla of Boston Wedding gown was purchased at John Wanamakers forty-two years ago. The entire bridal salon staff was very attentive and caring.

    I worked there for 13 years, met my husband there. He worked there 23 years. My uncles ran the pet store on the 8th floor next to the toy department. My grandmother sold fashionable hats there. Wanamakers is in my blood!
