CHOC has been providing emergency and critical care to Orange County families for 45 years, regardless of the family’s financial situation.

Tickets are now on sale, with prices ranging from $35 to $125. The $125 ticket includes a post-show cast party on Friday or Saturday night. All seats are reserved and group sales are available.

Orange County title insurance firm thriving
A recession-plagued economy in 1974 inspired Laguna Beach resident John Marconi to start one of the first Orange County-based title companies.
With a small bank loan — and a big vision for Orange County’s burgeoning real estate opportunities — the then 30-year-old entrepreneur founded the first “home grown” title insurance company in Santa Ana and never looked back.
Orange Coast Title Company is marking its 35th year and celebrating its success at staying the course in a difficult environment.
