The Lied Center for Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln presents "Cathy Rigby Is Peter Pan" at 7 p.m. on Feb. 12 and 13.

Tony Award nominee Rigby will take flight in an all new production of "Peter Pan," a unique, family-friendly attraction of spectacle and fantasy. The thrill of flying, timeless magical moments and a captivating Captain Hook will mesmerize young and old alike.

Broadway's Tom Hewitt ("The Rocky Horror Show," "Dracula," "Chicago") and Kim Crosby (Cinderella in the original "Into the Woods") play Mr. Darling/Captain Hook and Mrs. Darling, in this new national tour. The flying sequence choreographer is Paul Rubin, "The Fly Guy," who has choreographed some of the most memorable flying sequences from the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of "Wicked" to Rigby's Emmy Award-winning DVD of "Peter Pan."

Pre-show talks, scheduled one half hour before the performance, will be led by Brad Buffum, production stage manager for UNL's Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film, Karen Wills, program coordinator for the UNL University Program Council, and Kirk Monesmith. The talks, free to ticket holders, will be in the Lied Center's Steinhart Room.

This Lied performance is sponsored by First National Bank. The Lied Center's 23rd season is supported by Friends of Lied, Ameritas and Union Bank. All events in the Lied Center are made possible entirely or in part by the Lied Performance Fund, established in memory of Ernst F. Lied and his parents, Ernst M. and Ida K. Lied. The Nebraska Arts Council, a state agency, has supported the programs of this organization through its matching grants program funded by the Nebraska Legislature; the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
