Eight Presentations • December 9-13, 2015

Tickets available beginning Sat, Oct 17

After taking a hiatus in 2014, Celebration returns December 9-13 at The Loop! This spectacular musical presentation of the story of Christmas is much more than a show — it’s a ministry to the people of Houston that will reach over 20,000 people this year.

Featuring familiar and original music and a cast of hundreds, Celebration will also introduce new staging and costumes — and several surprises, too! Ticket sales begin Sat, Oct 17, at the Ticket Sale Launch Event. For now, makes plans for when you and your family will experience Celebration — and when you'll invite friends, too!
