Paramount Theatre Centennial 2016 Advisory Council Event

Featuring a Special VIP experience at Antone’s Nightclub

The annual Advisory Council party is one of the core fundraisers for the historic Paramount & Stateside Theatres and is a casual evening of networking with your fellow community leaders. Membership at this level includes an invitation to our Paramount 2016 Advisory Council Party, which will provide a one of a kind opportunity for a private VIP experience at the new Antone’s Nightclub great musical entertainment and an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the new venue. Like the Paramount, Antone’s is an important part of Austin’s arts history, and we are excited to embark on a future partnership with another of Austin’s revered institutions. We’d love for you to be among the first to hear about it. With your help, we can ensure that both the performing arts and our century old Paramount Theatre remain deeply woven into the fabric of our community.

Antone’s continues this tradition in the footsteps of a tremendous group of generous past hosts, who opened their private homes for the Paramount, including Amanda and Brad Nelsen, Gretchen and Bob Ellis, Sabrina and Jay Brown, John Paul and Eloise DeJoria, Kim Granger, John and Susanne Byram, Laura and Jeff Sandefer, Gabrielle de Kuyper Sheshunoff, Eddie Safady, Bettye and Bill Nowlin, Luci Johnson and Ian Turpin, Tom Green, Larry and Deborah Peel, and Rick and Karen Hawkins and more.

Beyond the great benefits and prime seats you receive from your membership, you are also helping preserve Austin’s most historic venues in the heart of downtown. We are celebrating a very special year in 2015 as it is the Paramount’s 100th Anniversary. These theatres are host to over 200,000 people a year, including over 21,000 school children (concentrating on Title I schools) this year and will welcome many more children from area nonprofit partner organizations who work with underserved youths at no cost to the children or the participating organizations. Plus, our show calendar keeps getting better and better with new shows still being added. And, when you join, you’ll continue to get the best seats to all our shows. Please take a look below for a complete list of benefits. Thank you.
