Broadway Series at Paramount Theatre in Aurora for 2019-2020

The Paramount Theatre in Aurora, IL announced its Broadway Series for the 2019-2020 season, so now is time to plan for a fabulous night or two or three at the theatre! Originally constructed in 1931, the Paramount Theatre maintains the classic glamour of theatre in its glory. We visited the Paramount for the first time this winter and were immediately enchanted by our elegant surroundings. We knew we were part of something magical! The production of The Wizard of Oz captivated us from beginning to end, providing us with such a fantastic family memory! The acting, sets, surroundings --everything was spectacular! The next season gives 6 different options for enjoying Broadway at the Paramount including two first run, world premiere opportunities! Check out this year's productions:
