I recently went to the Paramount to see "The Little Mermaid". The quality of shows performed there are generally outstanding and this one was no different. The architecture is beautiful and the decor reminds me of the olden days of theater. While there doesn't seem to be a terrible seat in the house, the seating itself leaves a lot to... More

We have been to New York City several times and see three plays on Broadway each time we go. The shows we see at the Paramount are every bit as good as what we see in New York. We are so lucky to have the Paramount in our back yard. We've been subscribers to the Broadway Series at the Paramount... More

I love the Paramount Theater. I recently saw the Little Mermaid and it was first class entertainment. The building is absolutely beautiful. It takes you back to a different era. Seating is generous which is very nice. Parking is very easy and you can park close to the theater. Definitely visit this venue.

I always enjoy going here as the quality of performances are consistently good. Very clean and good service. Facility is plain and not like the old spectacular theaters. Price is reasonable parking pretty easy.

If you go to any musical this is the one to see, The on stage actors and actresses, the band, the sets, the lighting, everything was excellent. Took our Grandkids for a matinee show and the loved. Best children's show since Mary Poppins. You do not want to miss it.

I've been to a number of shows at this theatre. The staff is always extremely pleasant and helpful. The shows are top notch. The latest one that we watched today, was The Little Mermaid. The musics, lights, special effects and puppetry were superb.

All the present and the acknowledged awarded past productions with live orchestra are fantastic. Well worth the experience at any price. The subscription series is the best.\

What fun! Although Paramount offers individual entertainers (Willie Nelson, Donnie and Marie, etc.). Paramount's 4-show special for Broadway Plays is just wonderful. It will cost around $200 for 4 shows, two people. The cast is so professional. Costumes fit the play and the orchestra makes you feel like you are in New York City on Broadway but at far less...

Great show great theater! The show was sold out. Parking is $10 which should be included with show ticket price if you ask me..i spent $400 for show tickets, then they ask for $10 per car to park..kinda tacky.

Thank Kathymoa
