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 111,000 students and teachers from all over Central Virginia to attend live performances at The Paramount since it’s re-opening in 2004.

In 2013-14, over 16,000 students and teachers from 62 public schools (14 school systems), 33 private schools and 33 home school groups attended education performances reaching ages Pre-K to adult education.  Approximately 6,000 students benefitted from financial assistance thanks to funding from our Arts Education Sponsors and Partners.  These are our highest numbers yet!

Please consider supporting the 2014-15 Arts Education Season.  Your donation provides the opportunity for ALL children to attend educational school and public performances.
