You are invited to a very special event of appreciation and celebration on Sunday, November 6th, 2:00-4:00 pm!
Join us for this fun-filled afternoon of story and music honoring nearly 90 years of our Historic Community Theater.
Come learn about the Historic Paradise Theatre and plans for its future. This afternoon will feature Carolyn Yates’ North Fork Movement Ensemble, David Alderdice and Friends, Music by Daniel Be, Excerpts from Paonia Players, Interviews and slide shows from the years gone by, Reflections from past owners, community members of all ages, and a very special performance by the recent American Idol Finalist, and Crawford resident, Jeneve Rose Mitchell, brought to you by T.A. Stevens Realty, and much, much more…
Jeneve is a young multi-instrumentalist who plays 11 instruments, all self-taught and paid for by herself. She plays all kind of genres including old time Western, Contemporary, Pop, gospel, Blues and country. She also writes her own music and is working on a new CD/record with Nashville and hopes to have it out early next year. You can go to Bandtwango.com to help sponsor Jeneve’s new album. She is also touring this year and plans on playing at the Grand Ole’ Opry.
Friends of the Paradise Theatre is committed to providing the highest quality multi-media and live performances, sharing stories that endure, and providing accessibility to all audiences. As a not-for-profit corporation, we fulfill our mission through the production of classic plays, film and musicals; development and production of new works by established and emerging artists; educational initiatives that enrich the lives of children and adults; and outreach programs engage all audiences.
Programs that fill the house with locals and visitors like the Paonia Film Festival, Paonia TEDx, the Paonia Players youth programs, Democracy Now! and Rocky Mountain PBS not only open a window to the world, they contribute to the local economy. When the theater is full, restaurants, galleries, and small businesses benefit. In a small rural town with a waning economy, the Paradise serves an essential role in the community. Our programs, films and productions serve children and adults, of all ages, from the local and surrounding communities reaching over 8,000 rural-based individuals each year, and enriching lives for years to come!
