Don’t miss Paramount’s big, brassy, Broadway-style staging of this hilarious fish-out-of-water holiday comedy. And with a two-story Christmas tree in the center of Paramount’s lobby, thousands of sparkling lights adorning the banisters and carolers filling the air with song, Paramount is the place where families head for unforgettable holiday experiences.
