JOIN THE ARTS EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP

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 and provide financial assistance so that all students are able to participate in the Arts Education program. With your support, students throughout our community are exposed to the life changing experiences that only the arts can provide!

Thanks to the generosity of our Arts Education Partners, The Paramount welcomed 18,667 students and teachers from throughout Central Virginia last 2018-19 season. ALL student/teacher tickets were once again subsidized at $8.50 per ticket, and 4,800 students who qualified for free and reduced meals attended at no cost.

These enriching Arts Education Programs matter. As two teachers shared with us last year:

“Coming to The Paramount to give our students experiences to see great literature brought to life on stage is wonderful! Most of our students never get experiences like this so we are very grateful to be able to come to The Paramount!” – Katie Rogers, Kindergarten Teacher, Clark Elementary School

“We are so appreciative of the financial assistance for our low-income students. We would not be able to attend without it! The students loved seeing the performance. In addition to academic skills, it is a great way to build social skills. It is another chance for us to discuss story elements, character traits, and expand vocabulary.” – K. McLaughlin, 2nd Grade Teacher, Greer Elementary School
