The Paramount Theatre in Rutland, Vermont, found a unique way to continue holding entertaining events for the community in a safe way this summer. Along with Catamount Radio and the Vermont State Fair, the Paramount Theatre is holding the Paramount Outside the Box series at The Meadow at The Vermont State Fairgrounds, an outdoor concert space suitable for social distancing.

On July 25th, the Vermont Symphony Orchestra: Under the Stars performance will be held as a part of this series. This performance will feature a  25-piece chamber orchestra. Going along with the outdoor setting, the music will focus on themes of nature. The performance also includes Francesca Blanchard, a Burlington-based singer-songwriter who will sing many of her own songs accompanied by the orchestra.

Times and Ticket Information

The gates open at 5 p.m., and the show starts at 6 p.m. Admission is $28 if bought in advance, $35 dollars if bought on the day of the show, and children under 12 can enter for free. If weather becomes an issue, the show will be held inside at the Paramount Theatre.

Guidelines for Attending the Event

Attendees are encouraged to bring a low lawn chair. Masks are encouraged but not required per state guidelines. Those who prefer to have more space to themselves should find a spot towards the back of the lawn. Food trucks will be at the fairgrounds offering a variety of options for refreshments. Pets, glass and outside alcohol are prohibited at the event.

Other Events in the Series

After the event on July 25, there are four performances remaining in the series.
