BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Maxwell C. King Center for Performing Arts Center is celebrating its 25th year in bringing the best of the performing arts to the Space Coast of Florida.

It was in April 1988 when the Melbourne facility first opened its doors to the sound of “Singing in the Rain.”

The King Center is marking the anniversary with a ticket raffle.

Consumers who purchase one raffle ticket at $25 will have a chance to win two orchestra–seating tickets to every show at the King Center in 2013.

You can enjoy every performance knowing that you have guaranteed seats to some of the “biggest shows in town.”
In the case of multiple performances of a production, you will have the choice of two tickets to one of those performances.

 Blockbuster Entertainment

Your year of blockbuster entertainment will include the performances of “Rock of Ages,” The Boston Pops Orchestra’s presentation of “The Barbara Streisand Songbook” with Keith Lockhart and Ann Hampton Callaway, “Lord of the Dance,” and “The Temptations” with “The Four Tops.”

“We are excited about this opportunity to offer residents of our community the chance to win King Center tickets for a suggested donation of $25,” said Steve Janicki, the King Center’s executive director.

“This is one of a series of fund–raisers that will celebrate the legacy of our wonderful facility and raise support for our outstanding programs.”

Raffle tickets will go on sale at 12 p.m. on June 13.

There are 2,500 tickets available. The drawing will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 22 before the King Center’s performance of “A Christmas Carol.”

All proceeds will benefit the King Center, a direct support organization of Brevard Community College.
