AS WE RETURN TO IN-PERSON EVENTS, WE ARE IMPLEMENTING NEW SAFETY PROTOCOLS.
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. With the grand opening of the Lawrenceville Arts Center in 2021, Aurora Theatre and the City of Lawrenceville continue an innovative model of public/private partnership that was initiated with the theatre’s relocation.
Aurora Theatre is a multi-faceted non-profit arts organization and the resident company and manager of the Lawrenceville Arts Center. Aurora Theatre produces and presents theatrical productions, musicals, concerts, children’s programs, and much more. Aurora Theatre also hosts Atlanta’s only professional Spanish language theatre, Teatro Aurora.
