NICEVILLE — The Mattie Kelly Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College promises a glorious tapestry of stage entertainment for the 2014-15 season.

Great musical events and dazzling Broadway spectacles combine on the Mainstage for a season that makes the most of NWFSC’s prime location on the Southern Tier touring show route.

Musical events include the humor and athleticism of “Recycled Percussion,” doo-wop sounds of the “Midtown Men,” familiar themes from “The Music of Marvin Hamlisch,” and the swinging big band beat of “In the Mood.”

Touring Broadway productions include the fantasy of “Camelot,” one of the Great White Way's most beloved classics, and “Peter and the Starcatcher,” a contemporary Tony winner that’s “a grown-up prequel to ‘Peter Pan.’”

For sheer variety, this is one baker’s dozen audiences won’t want to miss.

Sept. 12: Upright Citizens Brigade. The renowned New York improvisational theatre presents a night of improv comedy. $12

Oct. 6: Mike Huckabee. An evening with the Fox News chat show host, former presidential candidate, and bass guitar player, who’ll perform with the Northwest Florida State College Jazz Ensemble. Free for people age 18 and younger; $15 for adults. VIP/reception tickets, $65. Benefits NWFSC scholarships.
