Arden Theatre Company

Updated 9/22/17

Arden Theatre Company is dedicated to bringing to life great stories by great storytellers – on the stage, in the classroom and in the community. They produce a wide range of stories in a variety of styles: classic and contemporary, intimate and epic, fiction and nonfiction, musical and dramatic. They embrace stories for audiences of all ages and bring the same artistic quality to all their work.

Kids are celebrated at the Arden. They nurture curiosity, creativity and confidence through their educational programming. The Arden fosters connections between theatre and reading and promote literacy for young audiences. They reach thousands of students each year, introducing many of the region’s kids to theatre for the first time.

The Arden strives to be Philadelphia’s hometown theatre; they seek community partnerships and collaborations, make their work affordable and accessible, and train the next generation of theatre leaders, contributing to the region’s cultural landscape.

Internships can be arranged in one department or in multiple departments. They tend to require a commitment of 10 – 20 hours per week. Internship opportunities include:
