Venue Update

The Arden Theatre will soon be reopening for performances. A number of modifications have been made to our operations to ensure the safety of our performers, staff, volunteers and audience. This means your experience when you come to the theatre will be slightly different, though still thoroughly enjoyable.

Ticket sales are now primarily online though the theatre’s box office, which will be open one hour prior to each performance.  

To comply with capacity and physical distancing restrictions, modifications to seating times and processes may be implemented on a show-by-show basis and some shows may be planned without an intermission. Currently only 100 people are allowed in the audience, so there will be lots of room between you and your fellow theatre-goers.

Audience, participants and employees will be required to follow physical distancing guidelines and to wear face coverings while in our public space. 

Concession services may be offered when suitable and contactless credit or debit payments is preferred for all transactions. Cleaning protocols will also be enhanced. 
These procedures are intended to be responsive to the provincial guidelines while offering innovative and quality theatre experiences for our audiences. We will modify our procedures as provincial guidance changes, doing all we can to ensure your safety while you enjoy the performance.
