'A Body of Water' coming to Aurora Theatre

'A Body of Water' coming to Aurora Theatre

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Enjoy a great psychological drama at the Aurora Theatre this winter.

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lee Blessing's A Body of Water will begin its Aurora run on Thursday, Jan. 19. According to the theatre:

The mystery begins on a beautiful summer morning as Avis and Moss wake up in a handsomely appointed cottage surrounded by water on all sides. This attractive, middle-aged pair has no recollection of who they are or how they ended up in the same bed. Enter Wren, an enigmatic young woman who has either come to comfort or torment them. As the play unfolds, we begin to wonder if the pair really wants to know the truth.

Aurora veteran Mark Kincaid will star as Moss, with his wife, Tess Malis Kincaid, making her Aurora debut as Avis. Cara Mantella will play Wren.

'Bonnie & Clyde' musical to debut at Aurora Theatre

'Bonnie & Clyde' musical to debut at Aurora Theatre

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- It's not often that a Broadway-caliber musical holds its world premiere in Gwinnett County, but a team of some of the Great White Way's finest is about to stage a brand new production at the Aurora Theatre.

With book by Hunter Foster and music and lyrics by Rick Crom, Bonnie & Clyde: A Folktale will storm the Aurora stage in March.

The theater's associate producer, Ann-Carol Pence, will serve as the show's musical director. She discovered the production during the New York Musical Theatre Festival and  worked hard to bring it to Georgia.

"What originally spoke to me about Bonnie & Clyde: A Folktale was its irreverent comic sensibility and laugh-out-loud humor," Pence said. "The music and lyrics are superbly intertwined and propel the story forward, which is hard to find in a lot of the new musicals."
