The King Center staff and leadership is looking forward to hosting this special evening of celebration.  With the first event, “Singin’ in the Rain” which opened the King Center on April 10th 1988, it is both fitting and appropriate to pay tribute to the last 35 years with such a classic Broadway title as “Fiddler on the Roof” for fans of all ages to come and enjoy a special evening together in “Our Space, Your Place!”
