According to the website, “The theme for the evening will be ‘It Takes a Village” in recognition of the village of supporters who rallied to save The Paramount.” The gala event is designed to honor volunteers who have made a significant effort or contribution to The Paramount or the arts community at large.

This year’s Grand Marquee Award will honor Janice & Bob Aron and Carter and Wick McNeely—a group of four people who, nearly 10 years ago, saw The Paramount Theater’s potential and then volunteered to co-chair the theater’s restoration process.

The Gala events option list includes:

  • 8:00 p.m. special performance by The Village People ($29.50-$59.50)
  • 8:00 p.m. performance and After Party at The Paramount Theater ($100)
  • 5:45 p.m. pre-show Dinner and Cocktails at Fleurie, Ten or Zocalo ( $250; includes premium seating performance and After Party)
  • 5:45 p.m. pre-show Dinner and Cocktails at Fleurie, Ten or Zocalo ($500; includes premium seating performance, After Party and name listed in program)
