Arden Theatre Company Delays Season Opening due to Papal Visit
August 10, 2015

(Philadelphia, PA) Arden Theatre Company announced today that they will delay their 2015/16 Season by one week due to the papal visit. The World Meeting of Families and papal visit, scheduled from September 22 – 27, 2015, in Philadelphia, previously coincided with the Arden’s preview dates for their Season Opener, Metamorphoses. 

Arden Managing Director, Amy L. Murphy, says, “Our opening show, Metamorphoses, promises to be an extraordinary and visually stunning production. 60% of the Arden’s ticket buyers live outside of Center City. We would hate for audience members to miss the show or face difficulties getting to and from the theatre during the week of the Pope’s visit.”

The first two shows of the Arden’s season will be affected by the opening delay. The new dates are:

METAMORPHOSES
Based on the Myths of Ovid
Written and originally directed by Mary Zimmerman
Directed by Doug Hara
October 1 – November 1, 2015
Press Opening: Wednesday, October 7, 2015

EQUIVOCATION – Philadelphia Premiere
By Bill Cain
Directed by Terrence J. Nolen
October 22 – December 13, 2015
Press Opening: Wednesday, October 28, 2015
Arcadia Stage
