LAWRENCEVILLE, GA (January 23, 2016) – Central Gwinnett High School is thrilled to announce a partnership with the second largest theatre in Georgia, Gwinnett’s own Aurora Theatre. On January 12, 2017, the Central Gwinnett College and Career Academy Advisory Board announced that Aurora Theatre would have an office on the campus of the school. This office will serve as a center for students interested in volunteering, interning, and working at Aurora Theatre and a meeting place for collaborative projects between the theatre, school, and community. It also will serve to strengthen the partnership between Aurora Theatre and Central Gwinnett High School with the purpose of enriching students’ lives and bolstering the local arts community. The office will open in early spring.
Renita James, Aurora Theatre Education Coordinator, says “We are so excited to be able to directly connect with the students to engage them and the community in a way that spans beyond the confines of the theatre walls. We are able to have space where people can meet with us face-to-face and know that they are welcomed into the Aurora family, just as we have been welcomed into the Central Gwinnett family fold.”
