For over 20 years, Arbor has presented 20+ December "Classics", featuring adaptations of Classic Fairy Tales and/or Literature pieces, entertaining throngs of school groups and featuring casts of 50 or more. Their fusion of Comedy and Choreography (and in some cases, video) have been a huge hit and a tradition for thousands of attendees (over 4300 students attended the 2016 adapatation of "The Three Muskrateers").
In the early to mid 2000's, Arbor and the Peterborough Museum & Archives produced a joint project seeing several Historical productions being performed outdoors at the Museum, and was followed by extensive school tours of 45 minute productions.
Beverley Breedon, General Manager, has been a dedicated employee of Arbor Theatre since the mid eighties. During her long association with Arbor, Bev has worked her way through its ranks, becoming intimately acquainted with all aspects of its operation. Beginning as a computer technician, Bev went on to hold the positions of book-keeper, office manager, administrator, director of staff training, producer, and ultimately General Manager. She is the backbone of Arbor.
