The upcoming 2014-15 season of nationally touring Broadway and Artist shows appearing at the Mattie Kelly Fine & Performing Arts Center will be officially announced soon! Watch this page for updates! The center, located on the Niceville campus of Northwest Florida State College, is currently planning to host some 11 national shows, including Camelot, a return of the smash hit Menopause the Musical, Million Dollar Quartet, Peter and the Star Catcher, MidTown Men and more!
A variety of ticket purchase options, including a new priority window for corporate and group sales, as well as the popular “Build Your Own Season” custom package option will start in August 2014.
The national season is anticipated to start October 6, 2014 with the epic extravaganza “Camelot”. The full slate of 2014-2015 season shows, prices, discount options and sales dates will be announced in early May 2014.
Each of the national shows will appear for one performance only at 7:30 p.m. in the 1,650 seat, state-of-the-art performance venue that is the cultural gem of the Emerald Coast. Individual ticket prices vary based on the show.
The Mattie Kelly Arts Center will offer a priority window for corporate and group sales. The Corporate/Group priority window will allow groups to select block seating prior to the start of general ticket sales and offers businesses unique opportunities to partner with the Mattie Kelly Arts Center to promote their business or provide underwriting support.

Patrons will be able to choose their own selection of six or more national shows to build a custom package and receive a discount off the price of each show.
