Mission Statement

Arden Theatre Company is dedicated to bringing to life great stories by great storytellers -- on the stage, in the classroom and in the community.   Great stories on the stage:We produce a wide range of stories in a variety of styles: classic and contemporary, intimate and epic, fiction and nonfiction, musical and dramatic. Producing the great playwrights allows us to measure ourselves against the masters of our craft, while sharing the voices of new writers gives us the opportunity to shape the future of American theatre. We embrace stories for audiences of all ages and bring the same artistic quality to all our work. Great stories in the classroom:Kids are celebrated at the Arden. We nurture curiosity, creativity and confidence through our educational programming. We foster connections between theatre and reading and promote literacy for our young audiences. We reach thousands of students each year, introducing many of our region’s kids to theatre for the first time. Great stories in the community:We believe in the power of stories to bring people together. We work to build a vital community of artists who excel creatively through shared experiences and with whom our audiences identify. The Arden strives to be Philadelphia’s hometown theatre; we seek community partnerships and collaborations, make our work affordable and accessible, and train the next generation of theatre leaders, contributing to the region’s cultural landscape.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

October 2012)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Arden Theatre Company consistently stages high-caliber productions that include a range of classics, contemporary pieces, musicals, and new American theatre. The Wall Street Journal ranked the Arden’s 2010 production of Sunday in the Park with George as one of “the best musicals of the year.” Our 2010/11 season exemplified the breadth of our work, including a classic American play by O’Neill, a contemporary play by Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts, a musical by Bertolt Brecht, and two world premieres. The Arden’s commitment to producing important and exciting theatre ensures a meaningful experience for audiences and a robust creative home for Philadelphia-based theatre artists. The Arden’s 2010/11 Children’s Theatre season included a world premiere musical by Jordan Harrison and Richard Gray, The Flea and the Professor, based on a tale by Hans Christian Andersen; Flea was one of only seven projects chosen to be workshopped at the New Visions/New Voices Festival—a biennial international festival hosted by the Kennedy Center to advance new theatre for youth audiences. Arden Children’s Theatre continues to serve as the foundation of the Arden’s educational outreach program, Arden for All. Through this program, the Arden provides free tickets, free books, free bus transportation, and free classroom lessons to over 5,000 underserved students in Greater Philadelphia.   Arden Drama School, our tuition-based education program offering classes for students in pre-K through 12th grade,  provides scholarships to students in need, and for children to take part in our annual Arden Summer Camwe provide educational, creative, and fun experiences to young people throughout the region, fostering a lifelong love of theatre and appreciation for the arts.   The Arden recently announced an expansion with the Hamilton Family Arts Center. Once renovations are complete in 2013, this building will be a home for process and innovation, including seven classrooms for Arden Drama School, a rehearsal hall, an 80-seat Studio Theatre, Lobby, Parent Lounge, and Teacher Resource Center, and a Crafts Studio for construction of set and props.
