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 and Northeast Georgia, broadens the minds and souls of local and regional audiences by attracting world-class artists vested in producing inspiring work. We will be the theatre that:

Reflects Our Community

We will continue to evolve into a cultural arts center that reflects our region’s diversity. We will create a new generation of theatergoers, by continually creating new work, and seeking artists and board members that reflect the interests of a changing community.

Furthers Our Commitment to Education

By incorporating multiple venues, implementing new technology, and fostering innovative education programs, we will create profound partnerships with Gwinnett County Schools, Georgia Gwinnett College, and other educational institutions.

Builds Sustained Growth

We will maintain substantial growth by continuing to be a leading economic development partner. This will strengthen our bond with the arts and business communities, providing corporations and foundations a place to invest now and in the future. Our successful efforts will serve as a model of community pride and engagement.
