“The 1980s music featured in this production is very popular with our audience,” said King Center spokesperson Nance Burroughs.

The King Center opened its doors in 1988 and has hosted and produced hundreds of world-class performances for area residents and visitors to enjoy – while having a profound impact on the cultural and artistic landscape of Brevard County and Central Florida.

Brevard Community College, a state agency, owns the King Center, and the facility is managed by a separate non-profit subsidiary of Brevard Community College. In 1990, the King Center for the Performing Arts was designated a state cultural institution and a direct support organization of BCC. Staffing the King Center are 10 full-time employees, 57 part-time employees and 400 volunteers.
