Lawrenceville, Aurora Theatre to break ground on arts center

Lawrenceville city officials and the Aurora Theatre are inviting the public to the official groundbreaking for the Lawrenceville Performing Arts Center at 11 a.m. June 13 at 75 North Clayton Street.

The new space, which will be the expanded home of the Aurora Theatre, will include a 55,000 square-foot facility complete with a 525-seat theater, cabaret, indoor and outdoor civic space and rooms for office and educational programming.

The $31 million facility is expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors, residents, artists and students annually to Gwinnett. The facility will be managed by Aurora Theatre, the only professional theatre in Gwinnett and second largest professional theatre company in Georgia, and continues the city’s vision for “a walkable, urban lifestyle in which art comes to life in a talent-rich, regional epicenter of community.”
