LINCOLN, NEB. – The Lied Center for Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln will present Shatner’s World, featuring William Shatner in a solo larger-than-life performance on Saturday, January 26, 2013 at 7:30 PM.

Tickets may be purchased at the Lied Center Ticket Office located at 12th and Q Street in downtown Lincoln, by phone at 402.472-4747 or online at www.liedcenter.org. Ticket prices start at $48 for adults and $24 dollars for youth.

William Shatner has cultivated a career spanning over 50 years as an award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, and horseman. He is one of Hollywood’s most recognizable figures and a major philanthropist. From Star Trek to Boston Legal, Shatner has entertained generations of television viewers. In this humorous one-man show he will recount his phenomenal path from classically trained Shakespearean actor to modern cultural icon.

A pre-show talk, scheduled one half hour before the performance, will be led by Bob Rook, director of Lincoln’s TADA Theatre and local entertainment reporter. The talk, free to ticket holders, will be in the Lied Center's Steinhart Room.

This Lied performance is sponsored by RBC Wealth Management: Andrew Benton II, CFP®, CIMA®, Gary Hoebelheinrich, David O. Spinar, CRPC® and Donald E. Spinar, CLU®.
