Arden auditions are held throughout the year, by invitation only. To be considered for an upcoming role, mail a hard copy of headshot/resume.

Script Submission:
The Arden gratefully accepts full-length scripts from literary agents and theatre professionals with whom the theater has an existing relationships. However, as part of the theater's commitment to the local community, consideration is given to the work of Philadelphia-area writers, defined as those whose permanent residence is within 50 miles of Center City, Philadelphia. If applicable send materials to the first 10 pages of the play with a cover letter containing a brief synopsis, cast size, and a bio or resume. Allow two months for the review process of script samples. No unsolicited scripts or work samples from those outside the Philadelphia area. Only materials conforming to the above guidelines will be given consideration. All others will not be read and will be either returned (if accompanied by a stamped envelope) or recycled (if an envelope is not provided).
