The Staff is amazing here, always welcoming and happy to greet everyone coming in. My daughter and I come on Saturday mornings for the children's playhouse shows, I love being able to introduce her to the arts so early.

This is an awesome theatre! We are season ticket holders and I am continually amazed at the talent in each play we have seen. This was no exception!

Have attended about a dozen shows at the Aurora, and have not been disappointed. Great seating and sound, and the talent is first class. The Christmas Canteen is my favorite.

I have been to all the shows this season, and when the playwright is good, Aurora delivers amazing performances.

We've been season ticket holders for 9 years. In the last couple of years I've been disappointed. The owners seem to want to shove their left wing agenda down our throats. I'm getting tired of it. May not renew next season.

With due respect to fellow reviewers, Aurora Theater is a professional theater company that rivals those in Atlanta and leaves community theater in the dust (not that there's anything wrong with community theater!).

We've been season ticket holders for years. Always well worth the money spent. Each season gets better with regard to all aspects of theater (acting, show choices, sets, production, etc). Always enjoy making an evening of it by having dinner on the Square prior to the show. Such a wonderful evening out!

This place has two theaters. A large one for big productions and a small one for smaller shows. Both are amazing. I am always pleased with the performances I see in both theaters. Whether the large or small production they are always performed as a Broadway show would be. I would highly recommend this place.

We enjoyed Christmas Cantina with friends, and all the decorated Christmas trees. What a great cause and welcoming people. So glad to have this theater in the area and great plays.
