The Paramount Theater believes that performing arts are an essential part of every child’s education. As a non-profit organization, we depend on private and corporate contributions to subsidize the cost of tickets and provide financial assistance so that all students are able to participate in the Arts Education program. With your support, students throughout our community are exposed to the life changing experiences that only the arts can provide!

These enriching arts education programs matter. As one teacher shared with us last year:

This was especially amazing for my class…there are children that are at risk, with special needs, and many come from families that would not be able to provide this experience. During the show I kept watching and looking at their expressions. I have to admit that I did got teary-eyed watching them because it struck me how this might be the one and only experience for them.
