About the Arden

Since officially opening its doors on December 2, 1983, The Arden Theatre has played host to some of the world's most renowned artists like Celine Dion, Cowboy Junkies, Robert Cray, Jann Arden, and Arlo Guthrie — to name a few — as well as local musicians, dance schools, theatre troupes and school productions from our community.

Thanks to significant support from the Department of Canadian Heritage, The Arden Theatre has invested in a state-of-the-art sound console, new theatre seating, aisle lighting and significant improvements to the concession and Box Office and most recently, Progress Hall.
