Arts for All at the Lied Center

Friday, April 7, 2023 - 3:45pm

Did you know that UNL students can get free and half-price tickets at the Lied Center for Performing Arts? Our Arts for All program makes unique, award-winning shows accessible to you for a great value right on campus! All you need is your NUID, and you can get 2 free or half-price tickets to most of the shows at the Lied.

We have free shows each semester, and there are 3 left this spring:
  • Huntertones: Thursday, April 13
  • Van Cliburn Gold Medalist: Sunday, April 16
  • American Ballet Theatre: Giselle: Tuesday, May 2 & Wednesday, May 3
We also just added 500 free tickets for Jagged Little Pill- a Broadway musical that won Best Musical Theatre Album in 2021. UNL is one of the only universities in the country that gives students free tickets to local theatre, so now is the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone or try something new!
