June and Lurie Walker, the proud new owners of a creaky old gothic house, have a haunting new houseguest – and she’s ravenously hungry. When Beatrice arrives, she burrows deep into their existence and unearths secrets with explosive consequences. Expertly crafted, this spine-chilling thriller evokes the terror of Get Out and the suspense of Hitchcock’s Psycho. A gothic tale that metaphorically and literally reveals the dark-side of America’s past and it’s lingering effects in the present.

Content advisory: mature themes and suspenseful situations.

After 2 whole years, Aurora Theatre brings you a Broadway spectacular the whole family will love. This contemporary take on the timeless fairytale features beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein songs like In My Own Little Corner and Impossible/It’s Possible, alongside a hilarious and romantic story that adds new characters and surprising twists. This rags-to-regal story parallels Aurora Theatre’s humble beginnings, from producing plays in the old Parson’s Hardware to fulfilling the dream of living in a modern day palace. Celebrate the future of possibility in an arts center 14 years in the making, because as all good fairy godmothers know, “Even miracles take a little time!”

Swindlers is a hilarious new farce that centers around bungling burglars, Jerry and Miles, who are set to make easy pickings of a millionaire Miami mansion. Things become complicated as the situation turns wildly hysterical in a circus of window breaking, code name using, bear skin rug scaring, people killing events that reveal a chance for these small-time crooks to make the biggest score of all time. The madcap caper? Finding the $300 million diamond first and getting out alive!
