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 for students and teachers and provide scholarships so that all students have an opportunity to experience live performing arts in our beautifully restored theater and be exposed to the life changing experience that only the arts can bring!

The generosity of our Arts Education Sponsors and Partners has made it possible for over 140,000 students and teachers from all over Central Virginia to attend live performances at The Paramount since it’s re-opening in 2004. The cost of tickets is subsidized for ALL students and teachers.

In 2015-16, approximately 12,000 students and teachers from 54 public schools (spanning 10 school divisions), 30 private schools and 30 home school groups participated in the Arts Education Program, reaching ages Pre-K to adult education.  All schools with significantly high free & reduced meal percentages have an opportunity to apply for additional financial assistance.  Thanks to funding from our Arts Education Sponsors and Partners, approximately 4,500 students benefitted from such assistance.

Please consider supporting the Arts Education Program. Your donation helps us continue presenting the highest quality of live arts educational programming for the youth of Central Virginia and ensuring access for ALL!
