Arden Theatre Company is a full-service, nonprofit professional regional theater, offering high-quality theatrical and educational productions and programs to the artists, audiences and students of the greater Philadelphia region. Founded in 1988 by Terrence J. Nolen, Amy Murphy and Aaron Posner, the Arden is dedicated to bringing great stories by the most prolific storytellers to its audiences. The company draws from inherently dramatic and theatrical sources—fiction, nonfiction, poetry, music and drama.
Arden offers both intern and apprentice positions. Interns get hands-on experience and learn from a staff of theater professionals. Internships are available in production (stage management, lighting, sound, props, costuming and scenic construction—helping in the build, rehearsal, technical rehearsal and performance of productions) and all administrative departments. The Arden Professional Apprentice philosophy is to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the inner workings of a nonprofit regional theater through real-world experience. Apprentices work in every area of the theater’s operations, including artistic, marketing, box office, development, production (strike, run crew, prop/set/costume building, etc.), stage management, finance, front of house and general management.
Internships: open to all college students, as well as some high school students. Apprenticeships: open to college graduates and graduate students. Bachelor’s degree or equivalent is required.
