NEW YEARS EVE, see Aurora live – with 3 choices for the evening.


Born and raised in Denver, CO, Aurora Sexton is no stranger to the
stage. With an early childhood start in theater and the arts, Aurora has
always been in the spotlight putting her creative talents to work.

With an illustrious career spanning over a decade and an accolade of
titles/crowns and accomplishments to her name, Aurora has become a
staple and well respected icon of nightlife in Chicago since moving to
the windy city 5 years ago.

From her dead on illusions of Dolly Parton to Marylin Manson, exciting
dance routines to swaying the melodies of a ballad, gorgeous glittering
showgirl pieces to barely there sex symbol, this multi-faceted blonde
bombshell will keep you guessing what she’ll come out with next and
always leave you wanting more.

In her time away from stage Aurora works as a freelance makeup artist
for weddings & fashion events, runs party events/promotions and is a
print ad model, most recently becoming the face of Starr Jewels, a top
of the line jewelry company for stage.
