“Great family theatre experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Went there to see Charlotte's Web with 8 & 10yo. The set was limited in scope but the production values were high. We were seated in the front corner about halfway up, though there's not a bad seat in the house really. The place holds only a couple of hundred people. Seems smaller than most HS auditoriums. This was our 3rd visit to see a show.

After the show, the performers have around a 10 minute question and answer session withe audience, then they proceed to the lobby to answer more questions, take pictures, and sign autographs. No real gift shop. Just a table selling a handful of show related items. Very, very family friendly.

Parking is easy across the street, though a tad pricey in the lot.

“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

I have subscribed to practically all of the theatre companies in Philadelphia - usually several at a time. I can honestly say the Arden always pleases. I am not sure how they do it so consistently, but I applaud them for it! I always look forward to going.

“Great Local Theater”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

The Arden always delivers top-rate theater performances
every year. Both the play selections as well as the acting
is equal to any theater being performed in NYC

“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

We have been to numerous children's shows and have loved all of them. The kids have taken some classes that are offered and enjoyed them also. Even took our scout troop here for a visit, again kids loved the class and the play. Very reasonable tickets if you get the Target buy one get one offer. Go you wont be sorry.
