Buy season tickets and save big! You get 4 shows for the price of 2. The performances and staging seems to improve with each season. And, it is so affordable and parking is easy.

We love the Paramount, have been going to different and shows for years. It’s awesome having great concerts, plays and musicals so close to home without the drama and commute of a trip to Chicago! We recently went to a gospel concert that was fabulous!

Nice place, great environment, and decorative features are pretty cool. Location is fantastic. The seating is good but if you have a tall person sitting in front of you, you could get annoyed.
