Here we grow again!
Spring is springing and so goes The Paxton Theatre.
2019 brings promise of fun and excitement with more live theatre, more live music and for the first time ever the circus is coming to The Paxton stage.
The Paxton Theatre Foundation remains focused on four areas of performing arts education; Live Theatre, Speaker Series, Live and Local Concerts and The Paint Valley Jamboree.
Now in its 55 year The Paint Valley Jamboree, Presented by The Rockhold, Brown & Company Bank is better than ever with Rick Henderson and The PV Jam Band entertaining with humor, history and all your country favorites.
The Jamboree enjoys the distinction of Longest Running Country Music Show in Ohio. It provides a unique educational opportunity for aspiring singers and musicians to work live with a professional band on the stage that hosted Loretta Lynn, Johnny Paycheck, Connie Smith, Waylon Jennings and many country greats.
The Live and Local Series, Presented by WVNU Radio 97.5 FM brings the best of Bluegrass, Rock, R&B to The Paxton with Adam Cunningham, McGuffey Lane, Phil Dirt and The Dozers, Terry Lee Ridley, New Again and the Lonesome River Band to name just a few.
Our speaker series supports the key objective of bringing community based educational programs to the region. Many thanks to Bainbridge Connections community group, The Arc Of Appalachia, Ross County Visitors Bureau and The Bainbridge Historical Society for their support.
The Paxton Theatre Foundation Children’s Summer Theatre Camp and production of Mary Poppins topped the charts! Forty-five children from five surrounding counties carried out stage and support roles at the theatre camp and or in the production of Mary Poppins.
