Director

Michael
Arden

Michael Arden began his theater career at age ten playing Tiny Tim in the Midland Community Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol in Midland, Texas. He is humbled to be working with the singular Jefferson Mays and all the incredible artists and technicians—including his longtime friend and collaborator Dane Laffrey—on this reimagining of Charles Dickens’ masterpiece. Past directing credits include Deaf West Theatre’s Spring Awakening (Tony nomination), Once on This Island (Tony nomination and the 2018 winner of Best Revival of a Musical), The Pride, Merrily We Roll Along, My Fair Lady and Annie at the Hollywood Bowl. He hopes Scrooge’s visitations might inspire us all to lead more honest, empathetic and benevolent lives. God bless us, every one! @michaelarden
