As we celebrate the return to live theater in Philadelphia, be a part of the next generation of theatergoers! We are excited to announce the Aurora Circle, a new community of supporters of Philly’s vibrant arts scene who are helping to create a brighter future for new works and our community of artists, in the city and beyond. Experience each show in the Wilma’s bold, adventurous season, and then meet the artists that help to create them. Aurora Circle members will have the opportunity to learn about the creative process from the actors and production teams that bring them to life and engage with peers who share a love of the theater arts.
Every member of the circle is invited to our special Aurora Circle Evenings!
For each mainstage production, there will be an Aurora Circle Evening, where members will be invited to watch the production together, then gather for an intimate post-show salon featuring members of our artistic cohort, cast and production. Over a drink, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions about the current production, discuss the Wilma’s season and the arts scene overall, and make friends old and new.
The dates for our special Aurora Circle receptions are as follows:
Minor Character: Saturday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m.
The Cherry Orchard: Saturday, April 23 at 8 p.m.
Fairview: Saturday, June 11 at 8 p.m.
Please note that Aurora Circle member tickets may be used for any performance. For more information, contact Jessie Betts, Development Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
