The play and actors were great. The live orchestra was very good and the set was amazing. The theater is beautiful and the evening was delightful. My only concern centered on not hearing everything the actors sang even though I was in the 17th row in the orchestra section. I'm looking forward to seeing Hairspray this February.

Very talented casts as well as stage scenery that is superb! Show productions are varied and add up to seeing multiple renditions of both the old and the new.

What a fantastic local venue. I was very impressed with this theatre, it's spacious lobbies and gracious service. This theatre seems roomier than those in Chicago. It is also beautifully appointed and rivals any theatre I've seen. Parking is easy and inexpensive in a garage one block away. There are restaurants and, of course, the casino nearby. We went with...

The Paramount offers a Subscription package for it's Broadway Series. You get to see 4 Broadway Musicals for only $100.00. That's only $25.00 a show! Awesome deal! Awesome shows! Series starts in Sept. with the last in March. Without the package your pay about $100.00 a show! Give the Paramount a try you will not be disappointed.

This is second year we have purchased the 4-show Broadway series at the Paramount Theater, and the musicals are even better this year than they were last year. Christmas Story was very well-done; the set production was exceptional. We just saw Hairspray last night, and it was excellent. The performers couldn't have been better if they were taken right from... More

Amazing place to see anything even if just to view the dazzling old theater that has been nicely renovated. We saw the theatrical version of "A Christmas Story" and even my kid (who thought he didn't want to go) was highly entertained. Although it may sound trite to say there wasn't a bad seat in the house, on the main... More

This is a beautiful old theater. I have season tickets to the broadway musical package. Every season I am more amazed at the quality of the shows they produce! I have been to Theater shows in large city theaters and these rank right up there with quality of the large companies.

As a pre-Christmas gift, took my wife and daughter to see the Christmas Story musical. Outstanding production & theatre. Very personable & friendly staff and most seats have great views. And many good restaurants within walking distance. Overall ticket prices reasonable and free parking close by.

A very nice theater that preserves the feelings of an old one but is still modern. A very nice place to visit if you ever take a trip to Aurora and is well worth the money.
