Pageant of the Masters
Thursday, July 22, 2021

After canceling the 2020 production, Pageant of the Masters is scheduled to return this summer! This has been an Orange County institution for the past 89 years and our chapter has made it a tradition to attend year after year. Watch art come to life right before your eyes in a star-lit amphitheater as actors recreate famous works of art like you've never seen before. There’s nothing else like it! This year's theme is "Made in America," featuring artwork by American painters and sculptors. Your Pageant ticket also gives you entry to the Festival of the Arts all summer long.

Our group tickets are discounted and the OC Cal Alumni Club absorbs ticketing fees as well as Eventbrite processing fees to offer you an affordable price. Tickets are $70 for OC Cal Alumni Club members and $75 for non-members. Our amazing seats are located in the Loge Right Section (rows 2 to 4) so we're close to all the action. Showtime is at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 22, 2021. We sell out every year so you don't want to miss it. Buy your tickets today and join us for one of our premier signature chapter events.
