Two New Shows Just Added and Now On Sale

Posted Sep 9, 2022

Miller Auditorium has just added two more shows as part of its Ashley HomeStore Spotlight Series and tickets are on sale now. Croce Plays Croce and Napoleon Dynamite: A Conversation with Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez & Jon Gries are coming to Kalamazoo for one performance each. Croce Plays Croce is coming Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. to delight audiences. Napoleon Dynamite: A Conversation with Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez & Jon Gries will tickle the funny bone on Sunday, May 21 at 3 p.m.

A.J. Croce performs Croce Plays Croce, a special night of music featuring a complete set of classics by his late father Jim Croce, some of his own tunes, and songs that influenced both him and his father. This special event features such timeless songs as “Operator,” “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim,” “Time in a Bottle,” (a song written for A.J.), “Rapid Roy (The Stock Car Boy), and “Lovers Cross”, to name a few. Classic covers may include songs by Lieber and Stoller, Bessie Smith, and other folk and roots artists.

The beloved indie classic Napoleon Dynamite was made almost 20 years ago. Since then much has changed; but the characters, as enduring as they are endearing, stay in our hearts. Appealing to the inner-teenager in each of us, the story, and more importantly the dialogue, makes Napoleon Dynamite one of the most quoted movies of our time. Napoleon Dynamite makes us laugh, and laugh hard, over and over again. This unique evening includes a full screening of Napoleon Dynamite followed by a lively, freewheeling, moderated discussion with fan-favorite cast members; Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico).

Tickets are on sale now for both shows online at, by calling (269) 387-2300 or by visiting the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office. Groups of 10 or more are eligible for special discounts to most shows. Contact the ticket office for more information.
