Eight seasons. 32 productions. 1,362 performances. 41,000+ subscribers.
Today, Aurora’s Paramount Theatre – now the second largest subscription house in the nation – announced the four blockbuster musicals on tap for the company’s ninth Broadway Series:
Newsies, the rousing, David versus Goliath, Disney family musical ripped straight from the headlines about newsboys who take on a greedy news tycoon, is Paramount’s 2019-20 season opener, directed by Artistic Director Jim Corti, September 4-October 20, 2019;
Beauty and the Beast, the family-friendly, enchanting Disney classic storybook musical fantasy that proves beauty isn’t always what it appears, will be another holiday season spectacle staging by Paramount’s Amber Mak, November 13, 2019-January 19, 2020;
The Secret of My Success, a world premiere musical based on the hit 1987 Universal Pictures film starring Michael J. Fox, featuring a book by acclaimed writers Gordon Greenberg and Steve Rosen, score by Chicago’s own Michael Mahler and Alan Schmuckler, and direction by Gordon Greenberg, February 12-March 29, 2020;
And, the Midwest regional premiere of the high kicking musical Kinky Boots, book by Harvey Fierstein, lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, directed by Paramount’s Trent Stork, April 29-June 14, 2020.
Just as it has since it launched its first Broadway Series in 2011, Paramount will offer the same “Buy Two Shows, Get Two Shows Free” subscription offer. Broadway Series packages start as low as $72. In fact, Paramount subscribers pay no more than $37 per show, and that’s the most expensive ticket. Fees not included.
Renewals begin today, Monday, February 4 at 10 a.m., with current subscribers given first chance to secure their seats for all four shows. During the renewal process, new subscribers can pre-order before the general public to get in line for seats. Pre-order reservations can be made online only at ParamountAurora.com, for the first week.
Starting Monday, February 11 at 10 a.m., new subscribers can pre-order over the phone or in person as well. Single tickets go on sale in June.

Paramount Theatre’s leaders on the 2019-20 Broadway Series:
“From the streets of Victorian New York during the newsboys strike, to an 18th century French fairytale’s enchanted castle, to a present day New York romp about the meteoric rise of a corporate climbing upstart, to a failing British shoe factory rescued by a drag queen, there’s something for everyone in our soul-stirring, heart-pounding Season Nine of Paramount’s Broadway Series,” said Jim Corti, Artistic Director, Paramount Theatre.
“Our ninth season is looking to be the most exciting yet,” said Tim Rater, President and CEO, Paramount Theatre. “I truly hope our patrons love the shows as much as I do. I’m particularly excited about our regional premiere of Kinky Boots and world premiere of The Secret of My Success.”
