We need you Paramount audience!

Yup, we at Paramount want YOUR help! Help?! Help from us? Of course! You are the reason we dance afterall.

We, the Players, have decided for our May theme, that we would like the AUDIENCE TO PICK THEIR FAVORITE DANCE PERFORMANCE! Dance performance? You mean show? No we mean your favorite dancer doing what performance you loved to see again! 

Over the past year or more, YOU the audience, will pick what the dancers will perform on the Paramount stage in May 2016. Instead of a "Dancer's Choice Show," it's and "Audience Choice Show!" You pick your favorite "act" the dancers have done. If you need a refresher, click on over to the pictures page.

It can be anything done in the past year or two (2014-2015). Please nothing from the Night Players theatre, we do have some favorites of our own we did there, but this is for Paramount.

Please only the dancers that are currently employed at Paramount.You need a refresher on that too, just click on the performers page to see a list.

Please send a notecard to Lotta Difference and/or Pathmaker Resident with your choice. If you are in the neighborhood, drop off that notecard in the mailbox in the lobby! Jourdaine will be happy to show you. 

Deadline for "entries" will be April 22nd. This gives you plenty of time to remember what you want to see again and if the dancer has to do some editing to his or her dance and stage backdrop.

Last show of the month!


Come join us for an evening of classy but sassy entertainment as we the PARAMOUNT GRAND THEATRE, the Paramount Players dance for you March 26th at 7pm slt, in our new show, Fire & Ice. 

Our "Fire & Ice" will showcase, what else, fire and ice! Come in from the cold weather outside to be warmed by the dancers. When fire and ice meet on stage, steam appears... along with the Players.

Fires start when a flammable or a combustible material, in combination with a sufficient quantity of an oxidizer such as oxygen gas, is exposed to a source of heat, and is able to sustain a rate of rapid oxidation that produces a chain reaction. Ice is water frozen into a solid state. Depending on the presence of impurities such as particles of soil or bubbles of air, it can appear transparent or a more or less opaque bluish-white color.

Fire & Ice is the March Paramount show. this week's Sneeky peeky... is about...ice cream! We'll sort of, it's a dance about freezing!

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...
(from Wikipedia)
"Ice Cream Freeze (Let's Chill)" is a pop song by American recording artist and actress Miley Cyrus, performing as Hannah Montana – the alter ego of Miley Stewart – a character she played on the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana. The song was written by Matthew Gerrard and Robbie Nevil and produced by Gerrard. It was released on June 20, 2009, by Walt Disney Records as a promotional single from the series' third soundtrack, Hannah Montana 3. A karaoke version is available in Disney's Karaoke Series: Hannah Montana 3. It is an instructional dance song with a country pop sound and lyrics referencing ice cream and other frozen foods.

The song garnered negative reactions from contemporary critics but enjoyed humble commercial success for Cyrus in several countries, compared to those of her previous efforts as Montana. "Ice Cream Freeze (Let's Chill)" made its highest peak by charting at number fifty-seven in the Canadian Hot 100. The song also charted on charts in the United Kingdom and the United States. A music video for "Ice Cream Freeze (Let's Chill)" was released, taken from footage of a concert performance.

Sneek Peek: Fire & Ice Part 1

Fire & Ice is the NEW Paramount show coming to you this month! We've searched our cd's, mp's, itunes, any kinda of music source we could for this show. We've found quite a few good tunes to dance to!


This month, one of the dancers is performing to a song she has always loved. If you recognize it, it's from the movie "Beverly Hills Cop.'

Glenn Frey, The Heat Is On
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EU8L0-RkDYU

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...
(from Wikipedia)
"The Heat Is On" is a song written by Harold Faltermeyer and Keith Forsey, and recorded by Glenn Frey for the American film Beverly Hills Cop (1984). The song was published as a single and as the fourth track of the album Beverly Hills Cop: Music From the Motion Picture Soundtrack (1984).

According to Frey, he was invited to an early screening of the film, and about two months later was sent a demo of a song written by Keith Forsey and Harold Faltermeyer to be used in the film to see if he was interested in singing the song. Frey agreed, and recorded the vocal part in one day. The following day he played the guitar and recorded the background vocals, and was paid $15,000 for the work.

The mid-to-up-tempo recording featured a steady drumbeat, synthesizer, and guitar, with a repeated saxophone riff framing the lyrical message. The guitar solo is played by Frey himself.

The song became a major hit single, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in March 1985, behind "Can't Fight This Feeling" by REO Speedwagon. It was also popular internationally, reaching No. 2 two on the Australian Singles Chart in 1985 and gaining peaks of No. 8 on the Canadian Singles Chart and No. 12 on the UK Singles Chart. In the United States, it is the highest charting solo single by any member of the Eagles.

The music video for the song received heavy MTV airplay. It showed a film editor assembling scenes for Beverly Hills Cop while Frey and a band played the song in the adjacent room, with action scenes from the movie then directly interspersed. 


(from songfacts)
Beverly Hills Cop starred Eddie Murphy as a cop from Detroit who shakes things up in California. Glenn Frey was born and raised in Detroit where he played in bands with names like The Mushrooms and Subterraneans before heading to Los Angeles and joining the Eagles. Another Detroit connection from the movie: Allee Willis, who wrote "Neutron Dance," is from Detroit and went to Mumford High School - notice that in the movie, Eddie Murphy wears a Mumford jacket.

This is a popular song at sporting events, as it lets the visiting team know they are coming under pressure. The St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets have frequently played the song during home games, as have the Ottawa Senators of the NHL.
This was one of the biggest '80s hits with a prominent saxophone part, which was played by David Woodford, who is best known for his work with Aerosmith but has also played on songs by Chris Isaak, Rod Stewart and Aaron Neville. Woodford did not appear in the video, however. That part was played by Bev Dalke-Smith, who is an accomplished sax, flute and clarinet player.
