Aurora - Aurora Fox Arts Center

9900 East Colfax Avenue

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.

Great venue, but parking can be a bit of a challenge. My granddaughters were in a performance of Alice in Wonderland. All the girls were very talented. It was a fantastic show.

Great little theater. Awesome drink/snack prices. Long bathroom lines at intermission. May have to park where homeless people watch you if you can't find a parking spot in the theatre parking. Made me nervous to walk a block to the theatre. Irritated that I had to stand in line when I prepurchased my ticket.

This was my first time visiting this theatre and I went to see The Wiz. The show was pretty good but the theater itself is very dated. From what staff was saying, the production will be going away soon. All-in-all, I'd say this would be a good place to take your children for a play.

The production of SpamAlot was wonderful and had me laughing all night long. This is a small venue and there really are no bad seats. If you like theatre you will love the productions that are produced here.
