UNK- Magicians, dancers, Rubiks cube solvers and more will take to the stage during the sixth annual University of Nebraska at Kearney Fame Talent Show.

The show, hosted by the Loper Programming and Activities Council, will be on Thursday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in the Nebraskan Student Union Ponderosa Room.

“Last year, there were 17 acts,” said Heather Wolf, coordinator of student activities. “We have had acts that you would expect in a talent show, like singing and dancing, but we have also had some that are out-of-the-ordinary acts such as solving three Rubik’s cubes in five minutes and a comedic magician.”

A total of 15 group and single performances will compete for monetary prizes. Group performance prizes for first, second and third place are $300, $200 and $100, respectively. Single performance prizes for first, second and third place are $200, $150 and $50, respectively.
