In 1996, under Co-Founders Anthony Rodriguez and Ann-Carol Pence, Aurora Theatre was established in a converted hardware store in the suburbs of Atlanta. The City of Lawrenceville, GA recognized the positive economic impact the arts have on its community and invited Aurora Theatre to serve as the cornerstone for their revitalization plans. In a unique partnership between city government, private development and a non-profit charity, the city purchased a 100-year-old church and together with Aurora Theatre transformed the space into a $7.5 million theatre complex, which opened in May of 2007. With the opening of the Lawrenceville Arts Center, Aurora Theatre and the City of Lawrenceville continue an innovative model of public/private partnership that was initiated with the theatre’s relocation.

Now in its 27th Season, Aurora Theatre is the resident company and manager of the Lawrenceville Arts Center. Theatrical productions are comprised of the biggest Broadway plays and musicals alongside exciting contemporary theatre. Additionally, Aurora produces concerts, stand-up comedy, children’s programs, metro Atlanta’s top haunted attraction Lawrenceville Ghost Tours, as well as Atlanta’s only professional Spanish language theatre, Teatro Aurora. Nestled on the historic downtown square, Lawrenceville Arts Center has FREE attached covered parking and is surrounded by restaurants and shops. Lawrenceville Arts Center is a world-class facility with five venues, with the ability to host performances and community events both indoors and outdoors.

The show was great. The disappointing thing was that the new theatre was very poorly designed for wheelchair access to the theater. My wife had to use a box elevator which didn't work at first... Read Full Review

Good show, needs more parking

Went to the Improv Athens show. The talent was really good. A larger sign directing you to the correct building would be helpful. Go early; parking can be an issue, especially when multiple... Read Full Review
