Update from the PCA



At this time, we are closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19 and we will update the community as things change.

Performances and classes planned for Friday, March 13th will take place as scheduled.

Performing arts events planned for March 14th through April 5th have all been cancelled or postponed.

ArtSparks, Dance for All and Arts Underground have been postponed until further notice.

As always, the health of patrons, artists, volunteers and staff is our top priority. We continue to encourage employees and patrons to stay at home when ill. Our facilities are stocked with soap, hand sanitizer, paper towels, tissues and our staff and patrons are requested to follow strict handwashing procedures.

We’ve amended cleaning procedures throughout the Theatre and associated spaces with a renewed focus on surfaces and using disinfectant solutions that follow recommendations for COVID-19.  For your information we have posted signs encouraging sneeze and cough etiquette and proper handwashing throughout the building.

Centers for Disease Control, Minnesota Department of Health, and Stearns County Health Department recommendations will be followed relative to cancelling programming or suspending operations of the PCA.

If patrons choose not to attend a performance or class that has not been cancelled, a Gift Card or voucher will be issued for future use.

In the event a performance or class is cancelled, we will contact patrons to the best of our ability regarding donating their ticket purchase back to the Paramount, exchanging to another performance or class, or refunding. Patrons may contact our box office at or 320-259-5463. Updates will also be posted on our website and social media.

Thank you for your continued support of the arts and the Paramount Center for the Arts.
