There is no dress code at Aurora Theatre. We welcome everyone with a taste for the best in live entertainment. However, the notion of having to “dress” for the theatre actually keeps some folks from attending. To help break this myth, and just for fun, Aurora is promoting some themed nights of casual attire.
