Each one is as good or better than the last! We like to eat in a downtown Aurora restaurant and then see the matinee.

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!
