Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible.

The multitalented Aurora Fox Theatre Company presents the regional debut of While We Were Bowling, penned by Carter Lewis. The poignant comedy depicts an Irish family in 1950s Buffalo as they and the country around them grapple with attitude shifts and world events in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Filtered through the eyes of 17-year-old narrator Lydia, the tale follows their struggle to metaphorically adhere to each other through death, familial expansion, and the maintenance of an ancestral bowling legacy. The humorous production promises to push the creative boundaries of typical community theater, as ethereal pulleys swing the family’s courage over the audience’s heads and through the aisles.
A local historic landmark, the 245-seat Aurora Fox was converted from a movie theater in 1985 and has since brought professional, accessible theater productions to the Aurora area. Enjoy a friendly, upbeat evening at the Aurora Fox as a group outing, date night, or to avoid yet another family night of reenacting moments from the first season of Survivor.
