Aurora Theatre Presents

Digital Series 2020

Apr 03, 2020-Jul 31, 2020

When you are at Aurora Theatre you get to experience the performing arts at its highest level of excellence in our region and feel the sense of community we create with our welcoming spirit. Until we can all share live events in person, we will continue to provide access to arts and artists virtually.

The Aurora Theatre Digital Series 2020 delights with interactive, whimsical, personal, virtual experiences with artists directly to your safe spaces.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram where we have been engaging our followers with moments of delight. From uplifting quotes from past performances on a production image, our #ATSocialDistancingDiaries, to highlight and performance videos, the #BestofAT and much more, we are keeping folks connected and positive.

Events will be posted at the designated date and time here and on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

Tuesdays at 7pm
