This production is extremely entertaining. The cast is superb. The choreography is fantastic. Those familiar with the story, the UPS character was a crowd pleaser. We thoroughly enjoyed the show. The show is on thru October 23rd. PS: The new seats are very comfortable.

Buy season tickets and save big! You get 4 shows for the price of 2. The performances and staging seems to improve with each season. And, it is so affordable and parking is easy.

We love the Paramount, have been going to different and shows for years. It’s awesome having great concerts, plays and musicals so close to home without the drama and commute of a trip to Chicago! We recently went to a gospel concert that was fabulous!
