Pay What You Can
PAY WHAT YOU CAN – GROUNDHOG DAY TICKETS
Paramount believes everyone should have the chance to see live theater, and so we developed this program. Located in downtown Aurora, Paramount Theatre is offering two Pay What You Can Nights for their upcoming production of Groundhog Day. What that means is you pay whatever you can and feel comfortable paying per ticket. You can buy up to 4 tickets for that performance. You will get the best seats available for that performance at the time you buy it. It’s that simple.
HERE’S HOW YOU GET TICKETS
Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 7 p.m. & Saturday, January 29 at 3 p.m.
You can buy tickets in-person, at the box office the day of the show starting at 10 a.m. up to show time.
BOX OFFICE LOCATION
Paramount Theatre, 23 East Galena Boulevard in downtown Aurora.
HOW IT WORKS
Come to the ticket window and let the staff member know you are here for the pay what you can performance. You will be asked how much you’d like to pay per ticket, and that is the price per ticket you will pay.
There is a limit of 4 tickets per person. Offer not valid toward previous purchases. Online or over-the-phone purchases will not be permitted.
You will get the best possible seats available at the time of your purchase.

About R.E.A.C.H. Aurora
Paramount is fiercely committed to making the performing arts accessible to the people of the greater Aurora community. To that end, we’ve created a new fundraising program at Paramount called REACH — aka Resources Expanding the Arts and Connecting Humanity.
Paramount’s REACH initiative supports programs that create limitless opportunities for children, and adults alike, to experience the arts. In fact, to kick this season off, we plan to host new Pay-What-You-Can performances and other free or reduced-priced events at our venues throughout the season sponsored by REACH.
Additionally, the REACH fund will support our commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in our community. We celebrated this commitment last month during the local Pride festivities where our staff hosted a special celebration, including a friendly competition against local drag performers, Ari Gato and Bella DeBalle. Participants competed in a lip sync battle against these professional performers for a chance to win tickets to an upcoming performance of Kinky Boots.
The highest purpose of any theater is to inspire its community toward a more perfect humanity. Such humanity can exist only when we reach every member of our community and ensure for them to be included, valued, empowered and heard.
Paramount proudly focuses on creating a welcoming, warm, and inclusive environment for our guests, patrons and community — a place where everyone can relate to the stories told on our stages.
