Join us for the kick off of our 2018-2019 Discovery Series of family theatre at the historic Paramount!

Our celebration starts at 1:00pm on Sunday, October 21, with preshow crafts from Mexic-Arte Museum and live music under the Paramount marquee from Haydn Vitera! Toy Joy will be in the house giving away trinkets to the first 100 kids through the doors.

BookSpring will be holding a book drive and will have a table in the lobby. We also welcome lobby partners Casa Marianella and the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center! 

At 2:00pm, we have Childsplay's production of Tomás and the Library Lady! After the show, head down the street to Mexic-Arte for their free family museum day!


Tomás loves stories. As the young son of migrant farm workers, he spends the summer with his family following the crops north from Texas to Iowa. When a chance encounter brings him to the local library, he meets the “Library Lady” who recognizes his thirst for knowledge and encourages him to read. Tomás and the Library Lady is a bilingual musical, based on the beloved book about the true story of the Mexican-American author and educator Tomás Rivera, who became the first minority Chancellor in the University of California system. This inspirational production shows how reading and education -- and self esteem - can make anything possible.
