Paramount Theatre in Aurora reschedules its non-Broadway shows to 2022

Due to the ongoing challenges created by the pandemic, Paramount Theatre announced today the rescheduling of its June 2021 non-Broadway shows to March 2022.

The new dates include switching Frank Caliendo to March 18, Killer Queen to March 19, and Jay Leno to March 26, 2022. Paramount is working on a new date in 2022 for Straight No Chaser. Once that date is secured, ticket holders will be notified.

The tickets that patrons have in their possession for these shows will be good for their respective performances, a news release stated. Patrons have up to 60 days prior to the new date to request a credit or refund.

Broadway musical series

As of now, Paramount is still planning to open “Kinky Boots” this summer, adhering to all state and federal mandates. The set is built, props are ready and costumes are underway. Paramount’s 10th anniversary season will then follow, opening with “Rock of Ages.”

Paramount notes it is possible the opening of “Kinky Boots” may need to be delayed (first preview is planned June 30). If that happens, Paramount would delay the opening of its 10th season as well.

“I’ll leave you with this: When we aren’t working on stage or having a performance at Paramount, there is a single lamp that shines all day and night on the Paramount stage, the ‘ghost light,’” Tim Rater, president and chief executive officer of the Paramount Theatre, stated on the website. “Most theaters have one. Besides giving some much deserved light to the ‘spirits’ in the house keeping guard, it can represent a few different things. Throughout this last year, it has been a representation of hope, a beacon of warm, never-ending light and a reminder that the stage and house will fill with laughter and love again.”
