“Along with the dazzling production values you’ve come to expect from every Paramount show, there’s again, something for everyone in our 13th season of our Broadway Series including the two Regional Premieres of Disney’s Frozen and Grammy Award-winner Sarah Bareilles’ Waitress,” said Paramount Theatre Artistic Director Jim Corti. “As well, audiences’ raves for our BOLD Series launch us into its third season of smart, funny, musical, and ultimately intimate productions along with a new 98-seat venue planned to open this summer: the Stolp Island Theatre presenting an immersrive Million Dollar Quartet experience on the banks of the Fox River! That’s eight shows playing on three different stages coming to you with all the heart and skill Paramount instills in every show!”
