Critical Acclaim–

"This is the Arden Children’s Theatre, where literalness always takes a back seat to the imagination, and where talented actors enlist their child audiences as co-conspirators… After 15 years, the Arden has mastered the art of producing children’s theater with thoughtful direction, first-rate Equity actors, highly competent crews and, above all, scripts that treat even small kids not as children but as adults-in-waiting.”
