WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 8 PM: Croce Plays Croce – Performed by A.J. Croce–The 50th Anniversary Concert  

King Center L3Harris Technologies Theatre – Main Stage

Presented by AEG Presents


“He’s connecting the dots between father and son, who despite never really knowing one another shared a musical bond.” - Arizona Daily Star


Multi-faceted singer/songwriter A.J. Croce is hitting the road again in celebration of two more of his father Jim Croce’s legendary albums, 1973’s Life and Times and his final release, I Got A Name, in addition to songs from You Don’t Mess Around With Jim. The much-anticipated fall tour, Croce Plays Croce 50th Anniversary commences in mid-October with the first announced date being Springfield, MA on October 27, and includes shows through November and December in historic venues like New York City’s Town Hall and Detroit’s Royal Oak Music Theatre, and the final tour stop right here at the King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, FL.


Fans and critics who attended last year’s 50th Anniversary Celebration shows are thrilled that A.J. is readying another affectionate interpretation of his father’s enduring legacy. The shows have renewed interest in Jim Croce and garnered praise for A.J: “I think they come as a Jim Croce fan but also leave as fans of mine. That’s something that has also made this whole experience really amazing.”

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 30TH, 1:30 & 6:30 PM-State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine: Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs

King Center L3Harris Technologies Theatre – Main Stage

Presented by Classical Arts Entertainment


There are fairy tales that inspire creators to create performances in different genres and directions. One of these was the favorite fairy tale of the Brothers Grimm, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." This time, the fairy tale comes to life in dance and staging by the State Ballet Theater of Ukraine. Our ballet is a story about love, friendship, witchcraft, and the eternal struggle between good and evil.

Snow White is an excellent opportunity to spend time with the whole family and to introduce children to the art of classical ballet. A unique production, an excellent plot (bright acting images, virtuoso solo parts, comical dwarfs, funny little animals), famous characters, and dynamic music will give both adults and children a festive mood.  Two performances available at 1:30 PM & 6:30 PM.



King Center Studio Theatre

Presented by Brevard Music Group & Regalitos Foundation


A career spanning twenty-five years has brought this Canadian guitarist multiple accolades including a coveted Acoustic Guitar Magazine ‘Player’s Choice Silver Award’, eleven Juno Award nominations (he won for 2001’s ‘Free Fall’), a Gemini Award and, most impressively, ten platinum and gold studio albums. Moreover, he has sold out concert halls the world over, produced five PBS television specials and five live CD’s. Jesse Cook, clearly, has many more years of memorable performances ahead of him. 


Tickets for all three events go on sale this Friday, March 31st at or by calling 321-242-2219 during normal Ticket Office hours Monday through Friday, noon – 6 PM.
