Lied Center offering students free tickets for 3 upcoming shows


One of the advantages of attending UNL is the large number of unique opportunities for high-quality arts entertainment on our campus. The Lied Center for Performing Arts strives to connect the UNL campus with world class entertainment appearing at the Lied Center. This year it has launched a new program, called "Arts for All," which provides FREE TICKETS to UNL students for select shows in this year's lineup. Upcoming free shows in the second semester include renowned violinist JOSHUA BELL, internationally acclaimed ALVIN AILEY AMERICAN DANCE THEATRE, and a Blues Brothers tribute show, THE BLUZMEN.

These free performances are provided in addition to the 50 percent discount students can receive on all other shows like BLUE MAN GROUP, A CHORUS LINE, and newly added rock musical, SPRING AWAKENING, which UNL students can purchase tickets to during a special pre-sale from Jan. 17 – 31 at the Lied Center Ticket Office.
