Aurora Theatre Presents

Digital Series 2020

Aug 12, 2020-Oct 28, 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.

Events will be posted here on Wednesdays and on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
