You’ve got a “fantabulous” holiday gift from our Paramount Family to yours in Elf the Musical, which opened Sunday night! Amber Mak has directed and choreographed so many happy, momentous surprises into this stage adaptation of the popular movie, I marveled seriously at the effect our team’s work is having on the packed house full of folks here with their loved ones!
How is it that such a diverse crowd of people, who are mostly total strangers, laugh and cheer and applaud all at once?
Everyone, from whatever kind of day they’ve been having, wherever they’re coming from, is somehow in total unison! It is as if every individual’s heart beat synchronizes and beats as one!
It’s a powerful realization that we can unite so openly uninhibited, unguarded and spontaneous in full agreement! There is a light in each of us that a show like this charges, and we can see it in each other!
And as you will soon learn if you haven’t already, this day is “Giving Tuesday” all over the world! Take a moment to reflect on ways of giving back, supporting and thanking any number of the worthy organizations that serve the needs of our community globally and right here in Aurora. If you can possibly consider helping Paramount Theatre, a non-profit organization, by donating to #BoostingBroadway for #ILGive, you will be a part of our growing family insuring we have the funds necessary to continue bringing the highest caliber of production design and talent you’ve come to expect every time you enter our beautiful theatre and attend our award-winning Broadway Series productions. DONATE NOW
The word “our” does include you, whoever you are, from wherever you are, as our work here serves you and belongs to you. We share a rare gift here of bringing so many different people together with hearts beating as one!
Love & thanks,
