Aurora Theatre is mourning the death of founding board member Cynthia Sutt, whom the Lawrenceville troupe honored earlier this week.
Cindy Sutt, who with her husband Randy Sutt ran Rock, Paper, Scissors, a creative communications group, passed away Wednesday after a battle with cancer.
Aurora had honored her and husband with “The Barbara,” the theater’s highest honor in an annual benefit Monday night.
“Words cannot express the sadness being felt by Aurora Theatre,” said a release emailed late Wednesday.
The statement credited the Sutts with contributions that went way beyond funding.
“Cindy and Randy designed and built almost every show from 1999-2005,” it said. “As Aurora grew, their firm provided pro-bono graphic design services for a full 14 years… When Aurora Theatre expanded to their home on the square in downtown Lawrenceville, the Sutt family made significant capital campaign contributions that helped propel Aurora into a regional, and now national force, in the arts.
“There is no price tag that can be put on the friendship, guidance and old fashioned hard work that Cindy and Randy contributed to Aurora Theatre.”
(The AJC is planning a full obituary on Cynthia Sutt next week.)
