Our Mission

Aurora Theatre Company invigorates audiences and artists through the shared experience of professional, intimate theatre. Our work, while entertaining, is more than entertainment as we challenge ourselves and community to do better, think deeper, laugh louder and cast wider nets of empathy toward the world. Through our productions of both classic and new works, we support the Bay Area community by hiring local artists and artisans and likewise support all forms of diversity both onstage and off.

 

Our Commitment to the Community

At Aurora, we believe that theatre belongs to everyone. We ask that our staff, our artists, and our audience work together to make all people feel welcome here.

 

Here's how you can help us support this commitment:

 

Be respectful of others. 

Avoid making assumptions about people based on age, race, gender, religion, disability, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, physical appearance, or any other status or characteristic.

Remember that making comments or asking questions about the factors listed above -- even with good intentions -- can have a harmful impact. This is especially true about factors that have been connected with marginalization.

Avoid giving any kind of uninvited or unwanted physical contact or sexual attention, including sexual comments, jokes, and innuendos. 

Be an ally. If you witness behavior that appears to be making someone feel unwelcome, say something. Let us know what's going on. 

Please let us know if you feel marginalized in any way.  We take all such issues seriously and will do our best to address such concerns in a timely, respectful, and conscientious manner.

We have all kinds of people on our stage, behind the scenes, on our staff, and in our audience, and Aurora belongs to all of us.

Thank you for being part of the Aurora family!
