Top live award winning theatre in the Chicago area

All the present and the acknowledged awarded past productions with live orchestra are fantastic. Well worth the experience at any price. The subscription series is the best.\

What fun! Although Paramount offers individual entertainers (Willie Nelson, Donnie and Marie, etc.). Paramount's 4-show special for Broadway Plays is just wonderful. It will cost around $200 for 4 shows, two people. The cast is so professional. Costumes fit the play and the orchestra makes you feel like you are in New York City on Broadway but at far less...

I buy the yearly subscription for the 4 Broadway shows and HIGHLY recommend! Such a great deal at less than $130 for 4 shows. The production of each show is as close to Chicago as you can get but is easier to get to and at a much better price! The Paramount customer service is also outstanding to accommodate the... More

The Paramount Theater in Aurora, Il is a theater my husband and I frequently attend. The shows, weather musical, comedy or big name performers such as Donnie and Marie is the best theater around for the money. We highly recommend the Paramount Theater.

We went and saw Cats at the Paramount. They did a great job! We enjoyed how it was decorated and how well they performed!

A very nice theater inside and out. And with great show like Mamma Mia, we sure had a great time with music by Abba. If the acoustic could be improved, the music would have sounded better. You can bike to Aurora via the Fox River trail. Besides checking out Paramont theater, there's the Aurora Premium Outlet and the Blackberry Farm... More

A group of 15 saw Mama Mia today at the Paramount. It is a gorgeous venue with a wonderful history. Our group truly enjoyed the musical AND the theatre!! NOTE: Be sure to check out where the parking ramps are located because the theater is in the downtown area.

Purchased tickets for my mom's birthday. I loved it because it the tickets were reasonably priced, it was very easy to get there, and parking was a breeze. The venue itself was very lovely and my mom loved the show!
