RUTLAND—The Paramount Theatre has a week of entertainment on deck that will entice and entertain all ages, including cult fans.
Thursday, Feb. 16 sees the dance group Momix, a company of dancer-illusionists founded and directed by Moses Pendleton, known internationally for presenting works of astounding inventiveness and physical beauty. They will be performing a show called “Opus Cactus.” Each production focuses not only on the beauty of the human form, but also the beauty of nature, music, scenography, and life itself. Momix’s productions are carefully crafted to assimilate a multitude of various elements in each and every show. The show is perfect for all ages, and for all occasions. Children love the fun and magical props and costumes, parents can appreciate the subtle beauty in the imagery, and young couples can see the romance in a simple duet. Watching the show alone allows for deep internal reflection, or sharing the experience with a friend can bring discussion and debate about the mysteries and secrets of the show. The show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $32 and $42.
Moving on to the cult classic show, Let It Be, a Celebration of the Music of the Beatles will hit the theater Sunday, Feb. 19, 7 p.m. Relive The Beatles’ meteoric rise from their humble beginnings in Liverpool’s Cavern Club, through the heights of Beatlemania, to their later studio masterpieces, with live performances of early tracks including “Twist and Shout,” “She Loves You” and “Drive My Car,” as well as global mega-hits “Yesterday,” “Hey Jude,” “Come Together” and, of course, “Let It Be.” Travel back to the magical 60s when all you needed was love, and a little help from your friends. Tickets are $49.
