For over 40 years Penn & Teller have defied labels—and at times physics and good taste-- by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own very distinct niche in comedy. With sold out runs on Broadway, world tours, Emmy-winning TV specials, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and hundreds of outrageous appearances on everything from Fallon to Friends, The Simpsons to Colbert, Modern Family to Top Chef, comedy’s most enduring team show no signs of slowing down.
Lindenwood University’s J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts provides and experience that is truly like no other!

The academic season presents events produced by Lindenwood’s own Theatre, Dance, Music, Fashion Design, and Studio Art programs.
In addition to exceptional arts and entertainment, an evening out at Lindenwood’s breathtaking J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts includes outstanding views in the incomparable Lindenwood Theater or Emerson Black Box Theater, adjacent and lighted parking just moments after exiting I-70, optional valet parking, and service from a staff committed to exceeding your expectations. To make your experience even better, we also offer the convenience of purchasing tickets in person at the Scheidegger Center Box Office or anytime, online at the Box Office.
On behalf of the School of Arts, Media, and Communications and the entire Lindenwood community, thank you for your support. We look forward to welcoming you!
