Starting this First Friday, March 2, the Arden Theatre Company is adding performances to the mix of activities during the monthly Old City gallery crawl. The Arden will invite a different performing arts group each month to present current work in its Independence Foundation Studio and Lobby, and as an added bonus, will throw in free beer for the audience.
Judging from the lineup for the first three months as posted on Uwishunu, the event should be even more fun than the street performances and vendors that grace Second Street outside the Arden. The lineup is heavy with comedy and storytelling from now through May. In April, a lucky audience member may even become part of the act.
And if you’re lucky, you may run into your blogger in the audience.
The Arden Theatre Company is located at 40 North Second Street in Old City, next to Christ Church and just steps from 2d Street station on the Market-Frankford Line. Performances will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. each First Friday. Admission free.
