The Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts recently celebrated its 35th anniversary of operations on the Space Coast—as well as a refresh of its lobby and Members’ Lounge—with a ribbon cut ceremony prior to the opening of Broadway’s “Fiddler on the Roof.”

A longtime partner to the King Center and Eastern Florida State College, BRPH was delighted to help the client create a more streamlined bar and concessions area with enhanced menu offerings, as well as a lighter, more welcoming lobby featuring an artful installation for the donor wall, and art and memorabilia highlighting past performances dating back to its opening show, “Singing in the Rain” in 1988. The project also included updated finishes and furnishings in the Member’s Lounge on the mezzanine level and decorative metal screening with dramatic lighting at the entry porta cochere.

Additional updates and enhancements to other spaces at the King Center are currently in the works, including the kitchen, patios, restrooms, greenrooms and backstage areas. Project executive Christina Hoehn said, “It’s exciting to see what we can do to make these spaces pop and be able to use our talents not only for a longstanding client but also for such an important cultural asset to our community.”

Congratulations, King Center!
