Script Club 2005-2013


Theatre-lovers have been gathering together since 2005 at Aurora’s Script Club to hone their play reading and theatre watching skills. Designed to put theatre history in perspective with the current production, participants were encouraged to read a play that explored themes similar to the current show to illuminate the historical context, theatrical ancestry, and surprising timeless human connections. These free evenings were facilitated by Aurora’s Education Director Michael Mansfield.
