The Christmas Canteen at the Aurora Theater has been a family tradition for me for the past three years. The show is a great mixture of song, dance, and comedy suitable for parents and kids alike. Unfortunately, the 2009 edition was a little disappointing to my family of four. The 2009 show is almost an exact copy of the 2008 show -- so much so that my wife and daughter were announcing the next dance move just before the actors would do them. I did not have this experience last year, so I hope that this is a one time problem. If you missed last year, or if you've never been before, don't hesitate to go; but if you saw the Canteen last year, only go if you like re-runs.

I have seen two shows here since they opened in Lawrenceville. The prices for shows can't be beat and for Gwinnett you can't beat the location, easy access, easy and FREE parking! The theater is intimate and cozy not a bad seat in the house. The actors are talented, entertaining and really love to meet with patrons after the show. Being in downtown Lawrenceville has easy access to many restaurants for dining before the show.
