About the Arden
Intimate, comfortable, superbly equipped
Welcoming more than 65,000 patrons to over 150 events annually, The Arden has presented excellence in artistic programming for over 30 years, offering a variety of music, theatre, and dance events for arts lovers of all ages. Thanks to significant support from the Department of Canadian Heritage, the Arden Theatre invested in a state-of-the-art sound console and installed new theatre seats and aisle lighting in the summer of 2011 to enhance the overall experience and comfort and safety of our patrons.
We also launched our new Take a Seat Donor Program, designed to recognize people with a connection to the Arden Theatre. Take a Seat offers you the unique opportunity to create a lasting legacy in this treasured performing arts venue. Your donation to the Arden Theatre will place the name of your family, friend or business in the spotlight with an elegant, personalized plaque that will be mounted on the armrest of the seat of your choice.
Since opening its doors in 1984, the Arden Theatre has played host to some of the world's most renowned artists — from Celine Dion to Arlo Guthrie — as well as local musicians, dance schools, theatre troupes and school productions from our own community.
