Musco Center for the Arts is committed to making the performing arts accessible to all.
Accessible locations for patrons with mobility impairments are available at all levels within Musco Center. Patrons are welcome to use any mobility devices including walkers, canes, seeing eye dogs and oxygen tanks. Please let us know when purchasing tickets so we are prepared to make your visit as enjoyable as possible.
Musco Center offers both removable (for patrons who prefer to stay in their own wheelchair) and transferable seating options (seats have a retractable arm rest that allows a patron to transfer from a wheelchair into a theater seat). Patrons utilizing an accessible location may purchase up to three adjacent companion seats, based on availability. Additional tickets can be purchased in the closest available seats.
For the most personalized service and to make arrangements, in advance of the performance date, please contact Chapman Ticketing Services at 714-997-6812 to speak with a helpful and knowledgeable representative or email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
