Heading 5

Theatre Ariel has been a jewel in the Philadelphia region for over 30 years. We've entertained, educated

and inspired.

It is time for us to take our mission to tell stories of the Jewish experience to an even bigger stage. Literally. 

Theatre Ariel is ready to RAISE THE CURTAIN -- and we need you to join us!

BACK TO THE BOARDS

For the first time in 15 years, Theatre Ariel returns to the stage with a fully-realized production.
It's time to reclaim our place in the spotlight of Philadelphia's cultural landscape. The rich narratives of our Salons will combine with the excitement and vitality of a full-scale production for a truly unique experience that will inspire ever-increasing audiences. Join us in this exhilarating journey

as we once again raise the curtain! 

WHY THEATRE ARIEL? WHY NOW?

50% of American Jews identify with their Jewry through arts and culture. (Pew Study)

44% of Americans say they “know nothing” or “not much” about Jews and Judaism. (AJC) 

36% increase in anti-Semitic acts from 2022 to 2023. (ADL)

Theatre Ariel believes in the power of Jewish stories to:

- Deepen and strengthen Jewish identity
- Teach people of all backgrounds about the Jewish experience
- Help combat anti-Semitism
