Support the Arden

Together, we're bringing great stories to life

Arden Theatre Company is an integral part of the cultural fabric of this region’s artists, audiences, and students. Your donation is an investment in our community, bringing to life new stories on our stages, inspiring children in the classroom through Arden for All, and providing Philadelphia artists with a creative home.

Only 60% of our costs are covered by ticket sales.

We rely on your generosity.

Your gift will:

  • Bring to life great stories by great storytellers, including re-envisioned classics, imaginative Arden Children’s Theatre, world premieres, and contemporary plays that celebrate and challenge Philadelphia’s best theatre artists.
  • Distribute free tickets to young people in the local community through Arden for All, our in-school arts education residency program.
  • Offer tuition-based and scholarship drama classes and camps for students ranging from pre-K through 12th grade.
  • Train future theatre leaders through the Arden Professional Apprentice Program.
  • And so much more!

When you give to the Arden, you become part of our extended family. Our Donors receive special perks, including:

  • Recognition in our playbill and donor display boards in the lobby
  • Invitation to a Pre-show donor appreciation reception
  • Special discounts and insider information throughout the season
