Description

In partnership with Dylan's Down with the Arts (DDWA), the Aurora Singers will write, produce and perform in the spring of 2021, an original musical dinner mystery theatre production for the youth, young adults and adults with Down's Syndrome and other disabilities that are served by DDWA.

Aurora Singers has a long history of inclusion especially for performers with disabilities, modifying choreography and any other elements of the performances necessary to allow those who are differently abled to be actively involved. Therefore, developing a program specifically for young performing artists with disabilities is a natural step in the organization's evolution.

Description

The Aurora Singers perform four shows per season. Each show has two performances - a Saturday evening and Sunday matinee for those who do not drive at night. This season's performances are:

Decades of Fun Sept 26,27
There is no better way to kick off the season than a musical romp through decades of great songs. With so many, we guarantee that you'll have fun, fun, fun. 'Til her daddy takes her T-Bird away? Maybe. Join us and find out! Celebrating Decades of Fun through song and dance would not be authentic if we didn't jump feet first in the 2020s.
To avoid compromising anyone's health, comfort or sense of well-being, the Aurora Singers have made the decision to NOT offer a public performance of our September show. We will miss seeing each and every one of you in person but look forward to you joining us online.

Let it Snow Dec 12,13
It's simply impossible to celebrate the winter holidays without the Aurora Singers! Join us for a holly jolly, over the top, musical cornucopia. Baby, it may be cold outside but we don't care. Bundle up the entire family and meet us at our new venue, Heather Gardens*, for a holiday romp with plenty of favorite songs to sing along with.

* We're hoping, along with everyone in the world, for favorable health and safety conditions for a live performance come December. However, we do have a backup plan, should that not be the case. Do not fret, we'll let you know in plenty of time if we're going to Plan B.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game Mar 13,14
Baseball season is just around the corner and with the Aurora Singers - the ultimate Double Header. Join us as we pay tribute to America's Pastime. There will be no cheap seats or flat beer for our fans just songs that will have you cheering in the stands because we're going to hit it deep.


The Best of Broadway May 15,16
There's no place on earth like Broadway and the Aurora Singers are bringing the BEST of the best to you for our season finale. The influence of Broadway musicals on contemporary culture has been enormous so we are faced with no small task selecting the BEST. But we've got the chops for it, so come on along, you Broadway Babies. Information will be available on our website regarding the Parker performance.
