Stage aurora: NEw York

Stage Aurora is now located in New York City, NY.
Originally founded in Jacksonville, FL, Stage Aurora who's mission is 'to enlighten the mind by way of the Arts through the African-American experience', obtained 501c3 nonprofit status in NY in 2017 via 'foreign authority' from the New York State Division of Corporations.

We have currently entered into a partnership agreement with Renew Queens Community Center. A second location for performances is Saint James Presbyterian Church located in Harlem. Programming engages communities from all boroughs.

New York sources of funding include, but not limited to, Actors' Equity Association, National Alliance for Musical Theatre, Queens Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, matching gift support from Open Society Institute, and the Dramatist Guild Foundation.

Stage Aurora premiered in NY with Darryl Reuben Hall's The Dinner in the 2015 Midtown International Theatre Festival to rave reviews:
"The Dinner comes at a time when the nation is facing headlines of police brutality, the confederate flag, and re-evaluating race. This piece invokes deep thinking and a well needed, important conversation on race in America. With many historical shows making their way to the Broadway stage, such as Hamilton and Amazing Grace, The Dinner could potentially fit into this trend, and shine."-Brooke Clariday, Theatre Reviews Limited

Additionally, we have produced over 200+ productions since our founding years. Among the productions are Pulitzer Prize Winners Driving Miss Daisy, To Kill A Mockingbird, Fences, The Piano Lesson, and the Tony Award Winners The Color Purple, Dreamgirls, The Wiz, and A Raisin in the Sun. Other classics include Crowns, Miss Evers' Boys, Mama, I Want to Sing, Disney's High School Musical, and a community favorite Darryl Reuben Hall’s Frat House. Critics have praised our works as Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun ‘was both splendid and captivating’, Langston Hughes’ Black Nativity “All color and life and unbelievable, this is a miraculous spectacle of Biblical and artistic proportions”; Tom Stolz’s Mahalia as ‘an exceptional masterpiece’, and Darryl Reuben Hall’s Frat House “impressively choreographed, energetic, and lots of fun, 5-Stars!

Our Children Outreach continues with the Annual Performing Arts Summer Institute, Aurora Lecture Series, 100 Youth Voices, and the Schools Matinee Series.

Join us as we strive to produce Theatre that Enlightens in New York!
