2019-20 Arts Education Season

It was a wonderful 2019-20 season, and we were thrilled to welcome 13,414 students and teachers (grades Pre-K-12) from all around Central Virginia. Students and teachers came from 46 public schools (11 school divisions throughout Central Virginia), 18 private schools and 37 home school groups. Thanks to the generosity of The Paramount’s Arts Education Partners, nearly 3,500 students benefited from additional financial assistance based on need.

The 2019-20 season programming included: National Geographic Live! Coral Kingdoms and Empires of Ice; Enchantment Theatre Company’s Peter Rabbit™ Tales; Secret Agent 23 Skidoo; Childsplay’s Maddi’s Fridge; National Players’ The Diary of Anne Frank; Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences on Tour’s Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! (The Musical); Tall Stories, London’s Wilde Creatures; Yamato, The Drummers of Japan; and Mad River Theater Works’ Walk On: The Story of Rosa Parks.
