See Live theatre at Theatre Aurora

Theatre Aurora is presenting "That Summer" by celebrated Canadian author David French. What is the play about? Briefly, it's Memorial Day 1990, and Margaret Ryan has returned from Vermont to the Ontario Cottage country where , 32 years before she was forced to vacation with her family. She then watches her younger self relive the innocence and beauty of that summer as the play moves inexorably back the heartbreak of a headlong surrender to experience , both won and lost in a single day.

I've managed to secure for us a group rate of only $18.00 per ticket (Regular $23.00) The show starts at 8:00 pm. So it's usually a good idea to get there at least 30 mins before. You can get your tickets at the box office then. Don't forget to mention you're with Meetup to get your discount.

Tickets can also be bought at the box office at the theatre Tues-Fri 6-8 pm or you can call[masked] and reserve your tickets that way. Make sure you tell them you're with the Meetup group to get your discounted price

This is a terrific play reminiscent of "Dirty Dancing" and "My American Cousin" and it is filled with both poignant and humourous moments. The play will have an ethereal look to it, as it is made mostly of Margaret's memory, but there'll be a lake on stage!

Best of all you get to come and see a fellow member on stage and help out a charitable organization such as Theatre Aurora.

    Sal- you were most excellent and I must say that you reminded me of the Officer and a Gentleman in the white outfit. You should wear all white all of the time- The ladies won't leave you alone. You will have to buy a stick to fight them off!! Thanks for advertising this event. To my naughtie ladies and you know who you are Fran, Cindy and Ruth. You three are trouble! I am glad to have been seated with Gerry and Michelle as they made my dinner conversation very entertaining. Looking forward to the next outing. I have been collecting some jokes for the next pool night.

      April 9

  • Ron

    Hello everyone, I think at least 4 or 5 of us will be at the State & Main by 5:30 pm, so we will try to get 12 or 13 seats. If anybody else is coming, let us know. See you there.

    April 7

  • Kerry

    I won't be able to make it to Aurora in time to join the dinner group, so I'll go straight to the box office to pick up my ticket. Do I have to call them to reserve a ticket, or will Sal confirm that enough tickets have been reserved for all of us?

    April 7

    • Sal A.

      No worries Kerry, I have reserved 28 seats for everyone so far, if there are more required I'm sure I can work something out :-) Just be sure you let them know you're with the meetup group

      April 7

  • Tiana

    • Sal A.

      Sorry to hear that Karen. We hope you can make our other great events

      April 5

  • Ron

    Hello everyone, thanks for everyone that are going to show up around 5:30 so we can get some seats at State & Main, my last count was 12 for dinner.
    I think the Aurora Theatre has 16 seats reserved, Sal can check, as we have 23 signed up. Some of us will not have time to drop by the theatre before dinner for tickets. Sal can you change the reservation, if you have not already done so, thanks Sal.

    April 5

    • Sal A.

      Yes, Ron :-) Seats have been reserved for everyone. You're all set to go. Thank you very much for all your help with the dinner portion of this event. It's gonna be epic!

      3 · April 5

  • Karen

    Hi, I am looking forward to joining you for dinner and have been following all of the comments on meetup. I will be at State and Main early as well to help secure seats. Should be a fun evening!

    April 3

  • Ruth

    thanks Ron, you have done a great job of organizing the dinner. hope to get there early and help save some of the seats with you Ruth

    1 · April 3

  • Ron

    Ok, I called the State & Main. They told me no reservation, If I get there by 5:30 and ask for a table of 12, she said it should not be a problem. There should not be a wait list by then. She suggested 5:30 so we could have our food order on the table with lots of time and not rushed for the show. So I will call at 5 pm, be there by 5:30 pm, so you all can try to get there by 6 pm or earlier and help me save the seats. I lost count, I think 12 should cover it. If not tell me. Ron

    April 2

  • Silvana

    Hi Ron, please add me to the list of dinner participants. Thanks, see you there!

    April 1

    • Silvana

      I will see you and everyone at the State and Main for dinner and then for the show! :-) It will be fun!

      April 2

  • Silvana

    Hi! Just wondering… Are there pre-assigned seats? If so, will the meetup group members be sitting together? Anyone know how long the performance is? Thanks in advance. I look forward to seeing everyone, it has been a while since I had a chance to get out with the group. I may join you for dinner, will confirm tomorrow after I purchase my ticket. :-)

    April 1

    • Sal A.

      Hello Silvana, There is a block of seats that has been reserved for the meetup group so you can all sit together. Because the ticketing system is somewhat old at the theatre, it does not allow for coupons or discounted rates so if you want to get the Meetup VIP rate I would suggest waiting to purchase your ticket once you get there. I promise you there will be seats available for all of us! :-)

      April 1

    • Silvana

      Thanks Sal, I will get my Meetup VIP ticket and rate just before the show then. I look forward to it!

      April 2

  • Judith

    March 30

  • Michelle

    Hi everyone, I haven't participated in an event in quite some time, I would like to join the group for dinner before the play if there is room for me? Do I have to confirm with someone or just show up at the State and Main for 6 PM? Looking forward to meeting the group! Michelle

    March 30

  • Ron

    Hi Sal, Ok, some people with different settings will not get these comments. So could you sent out a posting to everyone to confirm dinner at State & Main ( S&M) for 6 pm. Once we have some numbers, we can call them OK. Ron

    1 · March 29

    • Sal A.

      Good idea, Ron. Will do.

      March 29

  • Ron

    Everyone, there is time to meet up before to have a bite to eat. Anybody want to join me, any ideas where we can.

    March 27

    • Ron

      Ok great, is 6 pm good for State an Main. Do we need to make reservations, other people might have the same idea.

      March 28

    • Sal A.

      Hi Guys! I don't believe S&M accepts reservations, but if the group is 10 or more, you can call them ( (905)[masked]) 15-30 minutes prior and they will set up a table for you. I'm sorry I can't make dinner, but my call time at the theatre is 6:30 pm. :-(

      March 28

  • Judith

    Hi Sal, I am in for Q & A.

    March 28

  • Ruth

    won't be there for the Q & A sorry Sal, but will be there for the show.

    March 27

    • Sal A.

      That's ok. Thank you for coming nonetheless :-)

      March 27

  • Karen

    I look forward to attending my first event with this group

    March 27

  • Sal A.

    Excellent question Cindi! First, there is a block of seats that has been reserved for all of you already, so you can all sit together (unless you don't want to ;-) ) A good place to meet is at the lobby of the theatre. I will make every effort to meet with you if I can (after all I'm in the show, and not supposed to be out front). If not, one of our Front of House staff will be there to assist you. To purchase tickets, you can buy them when you get there, or you can call the Box Office (see above number) between 6 pm and 8 pm, Tuesday to Saturday and buy them in advance. Don't forget to mention your with the Meetup VIP group to get the special price.

    March 27

  • Cindi

    Hi Sal,

    Since you're familiar with the place, where would be a good spot for everyone to meetup 30 minutes before the show so they can try and sit together? Also, if they're buying tickets at the door, how much earlier do you think should they arrive?

    March 27

  • Cindi

    I'm in for the Q&A!

    March 27

  • Ruth

    hey Sal, looks like you have a great group coming out. see you there.

    March 14

  • Robynne C.

    Sounds good, count me in. Thanks Sal!
