Central Gwinnett High School has entered a partnership with the second largest theater in Georgia, Gwinnett's Aurora Theatre. Aurora Theatre will have an office at the school to serve as a center for students interested in volunteering, interning, and working at Aurora Theatre and a meeting place for collaborative projects between the theater, school, and community. It also will serve to strengthen the partnership between Aurora Theatre and Central Gwinnett High School with the purpose of enriching students' lives and bolstering the local arts community. The office will open in early spring. Renita James, Aurora Theatre education coordinator, said, "We are so excited to be able to directly connect with the students to engage them and the community in a way that spans beyond the confines of the theater walls. We are able to have space where people can meet with us face-to-face and know that they are welcomed into the Aurora family, just as we have been welcomed into the Central Gwinnett family fold."
