RUTLAND—The Paramount Theatre just announced a lineup of events in advance of its annual full-season announcement in mid-July. These five, first-rate events (exclusive only to the month of September) continue the tradition of excellence that theatergoers in central Vermont have come to expect and appreciate from the more than century-old performing art center at 30 Center St. in historic downtown Rutland.
“America’s Got Talent” winners Olate Dogs – Sept. 9 (special 2 p.m. matinee for Grandparents Day)
Five time Grammy Award-Winner, Michael McDonald – Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m.

Legendary vocal group, The Temptations starring Otis Williams – Sept. 23 at 7 p.m.
Renowned music icons, Three Dog Night – Sept. 30 at 7 p.m.
“Continuing the legacy of this historic organizations work on its stage is a pleasure and a commitment that this staff takes very seriously. I believe that this lineup, specific to only one month of the year, is a tremendous testament to The Paramount’s pledge to bring topnotch entertainment to our jewel of a theatre. It is a true snapshot of what will be revealed when we announce the entire 2018/2019 Season in mid-July. Of course none of this could be accomplished without the remarkable support from theatre members, sponsors and this great community we call home,” remarked Eric Mallette, The Paramount Theatre’s programming director.
