Very comfortable theater. Very accommodating to all ages and abilities. Local theater prices with downtown theater talent. The sets are ALWAYS amazing. High-quality pit orchestra. High-quality actors and singers. The price for a season here is less than you'd pay for one show downtown.

Most of the productions at the Paramount seem like they are Broadway shows stopping in a small town. They always cast excellent professional actors who do an amazing job!

Am a member of the Broadway series. Have been from the beginning. All have been well worth the price of the tickets. Can't wait for the new one to begin. No matter were you set you can see the stage.

I could just sit in this theater and enjoy the decorations. Old vintage type details, with modern charm. They have added cafe out front.

We always purchase the Broadway series tickets. It's a 4 show series that brings Broadway shows to Aurora. The cast and crew always deliver a first-class show. The venue has that classic historical feel with high tech lighting and sound.

This is a fantastic venue in the western suburbs for theater. It is reasonably priced no matter what the seats. The quality of the 8 shows we have watched was top notch. Also consider some of the eateries and 'drinkeries' within walking distance before or...More
