One of the core commitments of the Paramount Arts Center is to provide arts education programs that expand the horizons of the public and nurtures community talent. Emphasizing this idea, 75 percent of Paramount programs include an education element. Our arts education activities enriched the lives of 55,000 children last year alone. Our Youth Education Series gives many area children their first professional performing arts experiences.
Our Paramount Players Program gives hundreds of children and adults the opportunity to nurture their talents on and off stage each year and brings theatre to rural and low-income schools via our Paramount On Tour shows. Our year-round Arts Academy offers afterschool classes and summer arts camps. To ensure these programs are accessible to all, no child is ever turned away due to financial need. The Youth Education Series is proudly sponsored by Marathon Petroleum Company, and Ashland Credit Union is showing their support by sponsoring Professional Development Workshops for teachers. The Youth Education Series is co-sponsored and funded by the Paramount Woman’s Association, a volunteer organization dedicated to the support of the Paramount and its programs. Members of the PWA serve as ushers and assist in the funding, coordination and administration of the Youth Education Series. The BIG READ is a program of the National Endowment For the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Here are the performances that will be shared with community youth this season.
