Chapman Celebrates, formerly American Celebration, is a spectacular live song-and-dance stage show produced by Chapman University students and faculty, and has grown to be one of the county’s largest fundraising events with proceeds supporting the Chapman Scholarship Fund.

Seating is reserved and we highly recommend purchasing tickets in advance. This special event will be held in the new, state-of-the-art venue, Marybelle and Sebastian P. Musco Center for the Arts at Chapman University. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Guest parking is available in the Lastinger Parking Structure off Walnut Avenue.
