‘School of Rock’ at Paramount Theatre will Rock Your Family’s Socks Off!

Indoor Places to Go

My family was invited to see School of Rock at the beautiful Paramount Theatre in Aurora and it was such a high energy and fun-filled musical delight!

If you haven’t been to the Paramount Theatre before, it’s an absolutely gorgeous venue and we have always been impressed with not only the talent that they cast, but the amazing sets that are coupled with it.

School of Rock was a joy to watch as the main feature was an extremely talented cast of kids that truly brought the show to life! My teenage daughters and I agree that we were excited every time they stepped on the stage to see what they would do next!

The storyline of the musical holds true to the film it is based on. Similar to the movie, you find yourself rooting for the lead character, wannabe rock legend – Dewey Finn, and the all-star band he’s thoughtfully assembled full of prep schools kids turned child rockstars!

It’s a light, fun, story that can easily appeal to all ages, especially rock-and-roll lovers alike!

There’s plenty of time to see School of Rock at the Paramount as the production will be there through June 4, 2023. The show is a little over 2-1/2 hours and tickets start at $28. There’s some adult language sprinkled in making the age suggestion 10+ but you know your child best. Parking is aplenty at the Paramount with valet, paid garages and free street parking options!

We’ve always enjoyed their cookies and cocoa available at concessions before the show and during intermission. The cup holders in the auditorium make it extra convenient for kids. There are also some great dining options in and around the theatre if you want to grab a bite to eat after the show.
