The Arden is a theatre you can point to with pride; an integral part of the cultural fabric of this region’s artists, audiences, and students. Your gift will allow us to continue to invest in our community, bring to life new stories on our stages, reach new audiences, inspire more children on stage and in the classroom, and provide Philadelphia artists with a creative home.

Your gift will help the Arden:

  • Present high quality productions to over 100,000 audience members annually, including re-envisioned classics, audacious musical theatre, world premieres, and contemporary plays that celebrate and challenge Philadelphia’s theatre artists.
  • Create imaginative and engaging pieces of theatre for children through Arden Children’s Theatre.
  • Distribute 6,000 free tickets to young people in our community through Arden for All.
  • Offer tuition-based and scholarship drama classes and camps for over 2,500 students annually ranging from pre-K through 12th grade.
  • Train future theatre leaders through the Arden Professional Apprentice Program.
  • And so much more!
