Aurora Theatre updates on

Health And Safety

Jun 29, 2020

As we navigate the continually evolving COVID-19 situation, Aurora Theatre remains temporarily closed.

This pandemic has been harder than we ever imagined. For the past three months Aurora and theatres across the country have been fighting for survival. We have taken stock of what is most important. It is people: our patrons, our artists, our board and staff. Your well-being needs to be our top priority.

Back in mid-March we had a plan. We were going to return triumphantly from Covid-19 by resuming ON YOUR FEET! The Story of Emilio & Gloria Estefan. At the time, it made perfect sense. Just two weeks in to the run, we had a hit musical that audiences adored and was generating positive press, in two languages. The set was built, costumes were hanging neatly, actors and musicians were not ready to say goodbye to this amazing story of perseverance and the American dream. But things change. It is clear that re-convening our schedule with large-scale musicals is not the safe way to welcome our community back to Aurora Theatre.

Instead, we are coming back slowly. We are focusing on safety. We are continuing our digital offerings and working on partnerships to bring in-person performances to the outdoors. We are putting policies and protocols in place that will enable us to welcome back artists and audiences alike to your Aurora Theatre as soon as safe to do so.

If you have any questions or concerns our staff is working remotely. We are ready to help. Our Box Office staff can be reached via email or call 678.226.6222

Please stay safe and stay healthy,

Anthony, Ann-Carol (and Bella)
