RUTLAND—During routine maintenance inspections, Paramount Theatre staff discovered potential roof damage, according to a news release Friday, May 18.
“Out of an abundance of caution, and after consultation with our engineers and building partners, a decision to temporarily suspend theatre performance operations has been made,” the release continued, “safety of theatre guests is always the primary concern.”
The sold-out Oak Ridge Boys concert on Saturday, May 19, as well as the broadcast of Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutte from The Metropolitan Opera on Sunday, May 20, were both canceled.
On Tuesday, May 22, the Paramount announced it would be performing repairs to a section of the roof structure. Consequently dance recitals for Miss Lorraine’s School of Dance, May 26, and Miss Jackie’s Studio of Dance, June 2, will be relocated to Castleton University and Mount St. Joseph Academy, respectively. It is anticipated that regular operations will resume thereafter with no further interruption of the schedule.
