Mission & Vision


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.


Aurora Theatre, as the consummate professional arts organization in Gwinnett County, is quickly becoming the cultural arts center for the Northeast Georgia region. By attracting world class artists that produce inspiring work, Aurora continues to broaden the minds and souls of local and regional audiences. Incorporating multiple venues, cutting edge technology and an innovative educational department, we have created profound partnerships with Gwinnett County Schools and Georgia Gwinnett College. In order to sustain substantial growth, we have strengthened our bond to both the arts and business communities by providing those corporations and foundations, keen enough to support the arts, a place to invest in the future. To expand its subscriber base, Aurora Theatre continues to offer outstanding customer service, educational opportunities for the lifelong learner and diverse programming designed to meet the needs of a changing community. Aurora Theatre is proudest to serve as the cornerstone of Lawrenceville, Georgia’s redevelopment efforts and as such, continues to be a significant economic development partner positively affecting government policy, engaging the business community and remaining a source of community pride.
