Aurora Theatre Academy

Preparing Students to Perform Like Professionals


Aurora Theatre, the only professional theatre in Gwinnett County, is the ideal place for young people to study the performing arts. What distinguishes Aurora Theatre Academy from other drama classes is that students have the opportunity to rehearse and perform in a professional theatre, and their instructors are working professionals with years of real-world theatrical experience. In addition to receiving training to be a winner on stage, students build confidence, communication and life skills that will be a valuable part of their bright futures. As a non-profit with a deep commitment to educational outreach, classes are reasonably priced at only $175 for a six- to eight-week session.
