Aurora Theatre Company has built our reputation on being the Bay Area’s most intimate theatrical experience. By focusing on rich language, impactful stories, and the precision of the actor’s craft, we’re able to offer our audiences opportunities for deep reflection, new discoveries, and moments of sheer delight. It has been our honor to serve as storytellers to our community for more than thirty years.
But just as a show begins, long before the lights come up and the first word is spoken, our work extends far beyond the boundaries of the stage. The Originate+Generate program helps support local playwrights as they develop their vision, the Community Partners program nurtures mutually beneficial relationships with aligned local organizations, and educational outreach programs like our student matinees cultivate the next generation of audiences.
There is so much that makes Aurora Theatre Company a uniquely thoughtful and thought-provoking place, but at the heart of it all is, well, you.
As a non-profit theatre, it’s no secret that ticket sales only cover a small portion of what it costs to produce our season. We rely on the generosity of supporters like you to help us continue to present high-quality shows, employ local theatremakers, and create meaningful connections throughout our community.
Your support of Aurora Theatre Company is a direct investment in the artistic ecosystem that makes the East Bay such a vibrant place. As a cornerstone of the Berkeley Arts District, we are reminded every day of the creativity, hard work, and dedication that surrounds and inspires us, and with your help, we can continue our work for years to come. Will you help us reach our goal?

This means that every dollar donated here, up to $50,000, will be matched dollar for dollar. Isn’t that terrific? A donation of any size can be doubled to support Aurora!
Finally, don’t forget to spread the word about this funding campaign to your friends, family, and fellow theatre lovers!
A generous act is its own reward, but benefits certainly don’t hurt either. Click here to see our donor benefits for the 2023/2024 Season!
