Rock of Ages

Until October 18, 2020

Paramount Theatre Aurora kicks off its 2020/21 Broadway Series programming with high octane rock and roll tuner Rock of Ages. A full-out, blast-off, hold-onto-your-hairspray celebration of the great rock music of the 80s, the musical opened on the Great White Way in 2015 and garnered five Tony nominations, proving such a hit it's still revived and touring today. The self-referential smash is packed with 30 electrifying hit songs from Journey, Foreigner, Styx, Twisted Sister, Bon Jovi and many more that will transport you back in time to the decade of decadence.

November 11, 2020 - January 17, 2021

Get ready to swept away by the twinkling timelessness of Cinderella, Rodgers and Hammerstein's definitive rags-to-happy-ending story that has charmed and inspired audiences all over the world since its first broadcast with the legendary Julie Andrews on CBS in 1957. Now revived by the Paramount Theatre, Aurora, during its hotly anticipated 2020 Broadway Series, the production is set to be an opulent affair with high spirited choreography, stunning costumes and a soundtrack of R&H's best songs.

Killer Queen - Tribute to Queen

April 3, 2021

When a tribute band sell out the same arenas their subjects did, you know they're onto something and that is just the case with Killer Queen, a bunch of British superfans who've made celebrating their idols into an art form. Led by charismatic Freddie Mercury-look-and-soundalike Patrick Meyers, what started as a one-night thing has now spanned over 25 years and been welcomed the world over!

Ragtime Poster


April 28 - June 13, 2021

One of the most acclaimed musicals of modern times is back in a brand new revival at Aurora's Paramount Theatre. The winner of four Tonys during its 1998 Broadway debut production, Ragtime is a grand diorama of early 20th Century American life, featuring appearances from some of the most important figures of the day, including Houdini and Henry Ford, all shot through with the music of ragtime.

Jay Leno

June 11, 2021

Love him or hate him, the hugely controversial Leno followed in the footsteps of legendary NBC late-night hosts Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson as the host of the Emmy Award-winning and top-rated "The Tonight Show," until his last show in 2014. You would think that he would be eager for some downtime - instead, he continues to hone his sharp, good humored roasting and standup skills at engagements across the country, often exceeding 300 dates per year!

This beautiful Art Deco-Venetian designed venue is a true representation of early 20th Century Chicago architecture. Designed by Chicagoan architects Rapp and Rapp, it first functioned as a movie theater before a renovation in 1970 to accommodate stage productions and music concerts. Today it is one of the leading businesses in the Aurora area.
