We have made the difficult decision to cancel the remaining productions in our 2020 season.

The Board and staff would like to express how thankful we are for all the support you have shown to Candlelight over the years and look forward to 2021 and the day we are able to welcome you back to “the barn.”

    “You get to meet, greet, and know the actors and actresses up close and personal.”

    John Callahan, Season Pass Holder since 2012

    "The end of the afternoon you leave with the great feeling you have enjoyed another theatrical production with your whole family. In a nutshell, you can't beat Candlelight and that's why Nunsense (2015) was our 48th trek down from Northeast Philly, 42 miles each way...an afternoon with our extended family."

    "I have been to several shows here from a drag show to a classic play. The food has always been wonderful and the buffet gives everyone something to enjoy. As for views, given this is a small theater there is not a bad seat. So for a cost effective local show you can not beat this venu!"

    Actors serve as waiters. Fresh Salad bar. Peel yourself shrimp. Varied hot dinner buffet. Great desserts!

  • Testimonial

    “Top rate performance and fun for the whole family”

    We have seen Annie and Bye bye Birdie and we had a wonderful experience both times. Our kids (7&9) loved it as much as we did. The performances are impressive and having your waiter be in the show is a fun feature. It is worth every penny.


The Candlelight Theatre is nestled in the village of Ardentown Delaware, a picturesque artistic community established in 1900

Thanks to our dedicated staff and board, our hard-working volunteers, and our loyal patrons, we will KEEP CANDLELIGHT GLOWING!
