Paramount packs the week with variety of acts

RUTLAND—The Paramount Theatre has a full week of acts this week, from bass-y dinosaur roars to a classical bassist symphony performer.

The week starts out with the continuation of this past week’s “Vanya, and Sonia and Masha and Spike,” being performed by Vermont Actors’ Repertoire Theater in the Brick Box on March 1, 2, and 3, at 7:30 p.m. each day. Tickets to the Tony-award winning play are $20, and seating is limited to 50 each night.

Just next door in the full theater, the Subdudes take to the Paramount stage on March 1 at 7 p.m., with a vibrant cauldron of sounds that stirs together meaty grooves and jazzy dynamics, soulful R&B swagger, easy vocal harmonies, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll attitude and folky social consciousness — not to mention some of the sharpest musicianship and ensemble playing you’ll ever hear from any five musicians. Tickets are $29 for the show.

Modern day Renaissance man Ronan Tynan — a member of the Irish Tenors — will bring his unique voice and irresistible appeal to the Paramount audience on Friday, March 2 at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $34-$39.

Saturday, March 3 sees an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures to the stage for “Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live,” a theatrical performance that will thrill and entertain kids while stimulating their imaginations. It’s quite a realistic and educational show, designed with the help of professional paleontologists. Tickets to the unique show are $18 for kids and $22 for adults.

Rounding out the week on Sunday, March 4, double bassist Xavier Foley will perform solo, as he’s done with the Atlanta Symphony, Nashville Symphony, and the Sphinx Virtuosi at Carnegie Hall, among others. Splash magazine describes him as captivating audiences “with superbly executed performances … playing fluidly and passionately.” Tickets are $12 for those under age 18, and $22 for adults.

The Paramount Theatre is located at 30 Center St., Rutland. For tickets to the shows, visit paramountvt.org.
