About Arden Theatre Company
Founded in 1988, Arden Theatre Company is dedicated to bringing to life great stories by great storytellers – on the stage, in the classroom, and in the community. In 1995, we purchased a 50,000 square foot building in the historic Old City neighborhood, creating a two-theatre complex. We expanded our campus in the fall of 2013, opening the 22,000 square foot Hamilton Family Arts Center, our new home for process, where we rehearse plays, build sets, develop new work, and educate.

Each season, the Arden produces 7 shows - five mainstage and two Arden Children’s Theatre - resulting in over 450 performances that are seen by 100,000 people. The Arden’s work has received 307 Barrymore Award nominations and 63 Barrymore Awards for Excellence in Theatre and we have produced 40 world premieres. Our current education programs include Arden Drama School, serving 2,000 pre-school through high school students annually; Arden for All, our in-school arts education program serving 7,000 economically disadvantaged students annually; Teen Arden, an afterschool enrichment program; and the Arden Professional Apprentice program, now in its 24th year, is one of the most distinguished and rigorous theatre training programs in the country. During the 2015/2016 season, we launched the Arden Cabaret Series, bringing live music and performance in the 100-seat Studio Theatre at the Arden’s Hamilton Family Arts Center.
