Founded in 1990, Theatre Ariel is Pennsylvania’s only professional theater dedicated to illuminating the rich social, cultural, and spiritual heritage of the Jewish people. Theatre Ariel entertains, enriches and educates audiences of all ages and cultures through the telling of Jewish Stories, celebrating the laughter and lessons of the shared human experience.
We believe that Jewish theater strengthens Jewish identity while also serving as a bridge between people of all cultures.
Theatre Ariel has created, commissioned, and contributed to the development of 82 new works by playwrights from around the country; performing for nearly 400,000 children, teens, families, and adults.
