Celebrating Arts and Ideas
Connecting to the community. It’s what we do at Aurora University. Neighbors, faculty, staff and students join together every year for the Celebrating Arts and Ideas series, creating a thriving environment for cultural enrichment in the Fox River Valley. We invite you to join us on this intellectual and artistic journey. Whether you come to the Aurora campus to broaden your knowledge or to engage in the value of creative expression, we hope your experience provides a sense of community and inspires you to discover what matters and build your life around it

|Aurora University Spring Theatre Presentation:
Dancing at Lughnasa
by Brian Friel - Directed by Stacy Searle Panitch
In the summer of 1936, in rural County Donegal, Ireland, 7-year-old Michael lives with his mother. Life is simple, making ends meet is hard, but an old wireless radio brings an escape from their rough existence and dreams of the outside world. This magical and moving memory story is filled with humor and tenderness. Winner of both the Tony and Oliver awards, it is a vital, life-affirming play about ambition, happiness and love.
