Mission Statement

Aurora Theatre is committed to producing quality, professional theatre for the Southeast, North Georgia, and our most ardent supporters--the residents of Gwinnett County. We will serve these communities by offering entertainment that nurtures a love of theatre and develops a new generation of theatergoers.

Description

In 1996, Aurora Theatre was established in a converted hardware store in the suburbs of Atlanta. The City of Lawrenceville, GA recognized the positive economic impact the arts have on its community and invited Aurora Theatre to serve as the cornerstone for their revitalization plans. In a unique partnership between city government, private development and a non-profit charity, the city purchased a 100-year-old church and together with Aurora Theatre transformed the space into a $7.5 million theatre complex, which opened in May of 2007. Now, Aurora Theatre houses 2 performance spaces, boasts 4,600 season ticket holders, produces over 600 events annually and entertains 70,000 visitors. Currently in our 20 th Season, Aurora Theatre has become the largest arts organization in Gwinnett County and the fastest growing professional theatre in the state of Georgia.
