Taylor Sheridan

The 17th season of the Presidential Lecture & Performance Series opens with the Academy Award-nominated screenwriter.

WHAT:  Texas Tech University's Presidential Lecture & Performance Series (PLPS) will host filmmaker Taylor Sheridan.

WHEN:  7 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 28)

WHERE:  The Buddy Holly Hall for Performing Arts and Sciences, 1300 Mac Davis Lane

EVENT:  Sheridan is an Academy Award®-nominated writer and actor as well as a member of the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame. A Texas native himself, Sheridan excels in the western horse performance industry as an avid supporter and competitor in reining and cutting. He also owns and operates two Texas ranches: the legendary 6666 or Four Sixes Ranch, a 2015 Environmental Stewardship Award Program regional winner, and Bosque Ranch. Sheridan recently launched Four Sixes® Ranch Brand Beef which retails beef sourced from 6666 and a network of ranches. While the Dutton family continues their personal and business struggles in season five of “Yellowstone,” Sheridan has brought prequels “1883” and “1923” to life and is working on an upcoming spinoff, “6666.”

Taylor Sheridan will be interviewed onstage by Texas Tech University Centennial Coordination Director Blayne Beal, followed by a Q&A with the audience.

General admission for the public is $20-65 (fees included). Texas Tech students are admitted for free with a valid student ID while tickets last. Parking is complimentary in the immediate vicinity.
