Monday, Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m.—RUTLAND—The Paramount Theatre is proud to present William Shatner with his one-man show “Shatner’s World: We Just Live In It…” at the historic hall in downtown Rutland on Monday, Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
William Shatner’s acclaimed one-man show takes audiences on a voyage through his life and career, from Shakespearean stage actor to international icon, known as much for his unique persona as for his expansive body of work on TV and film. Shatner has cultivated a career spanning over 50 years as an award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, and horseman. He is one of Hollywood’s most recognizable figures and a major philanthropist.
In 1966, Shatner originated the role of Captain James T. Kirk in the television series “Star Trek.”
Shatner played the title role in the hit television series “T.J. Hooker” before hosting television’s first reality-based series, “Rescue 911.”
Shatner won Emmys and his first Golden Globe for his portrayal of eccentric lawyer Denny Crane on both “The Practice” and “Boston Legal.”
“Raw Nerve,” currently airing on Bio, is his own edgy, celebrity interview series. Episodes showcase Shatner getting to know his guest on an intensely personal level, touching upon subjects not normally visited on other talk shows.
Off the screen and broadcast waves, Shatner has authored nearly 30 best-sellers in both the fiction and non-fiction genres. His autobiography, “Up Till Now,” was a New York Times Best-seller.
Shatner has been successful in another area—horse breeding. A longtime dedicated breeder of American Quarter Horses, he has had enormous success with the American Saddlebred, developing and riding world champions and has won numerous world championships in several equine events. His passions for horses and philanthropy were united when he started the Hollywood Charity Horse Show, an event benefiting L.A.-based children’s charities.
Tickets ($65-$105) are available at the Box Office; at 802-775-0903 or online at kparamountvt.org.
