The Aurora Fox Arts Center, a historic landmark located at 9900 East Colfax in the Aurora Cultural Arts District, is the city's performing arts center. The Aurora Fox is a 245 seat performing arts facility, with attached rehearsal and scenery shop facilities. A former movie theatre that was built in 1946, the Aurora Fox was completely renovated and reopened in March of 1985.
Owned and operated by the City of Aurora Cultural Services Division, the 245-seat Aurora Fox Arts Center is home to the Aurora Fox Theatre Company, a professional company widely recognized for its eclectic, high-quality fare, the Aurora Fox Studio Theatre a smaller black-box theatre where more cutting-edge works are produced, and the Aurora Fox Children's Theatre, which annually produces the popular Little Foxes Summer Theater for youngsters. Having just celebrated 27 successful seasons, The Aurora Fox guarantees many opportunities to relax, have fun, and get excited again.
The Aurora Fox offers the residents of Aurora and the metro area enjoyment of professional quality performances in a smaller, intimate, and accessible performing space. Our goals are to bring new plays to the metro region for both our main stage and children's seasons, provide opportunities for children to perform in a professional environment, and provide opportunities for minority performers and audiences in the community to be involved in the performing arts.
In addition to performances by the Center's resident groups, the Aurora Fox Arts Center books other local and regional groups for performances at the Center through co-sponsoring with Colorado Cultural Connections, Aurora Sentinel, LaVoz, and Colorado Folk Arts Council, a multi-cultural series featuring performing groups that represent Aurora's many ethnic communities.
