It's just the place for a weekend of hi-power football action. Grab your Huskers T-shirt and be a part of the action. It's time you saw a different kind of red.

With a tiered geometry of glass, stone and twinkling lights, this monstrous arts center resembles a landlocked luxury liner in the heart of downtown Lincoln. While lacking the pomp of old style concert halls, the three stages of this acoustically impressive modern hall provide audiences with a very broad range of entertainment. Past performances have included Broadway productions, celebrity appearances, symphonies, dance performances, lectures, jazz concerts and much more. Complimentary refreshments are served at intermission on the second deck.

While you can expect some type of event here on most weekends, the quality of performances ranges from outstanding to abysmal. Concerts by the Third Chair Chamber Players as well as dance performances presented by the Wagon Train Project are always enthusiastically received by a full house.
