LAS VEGAS – On Friday, March 3, two-time Emmy Award®-winning actor William Shatner will perform alongside multi-platinum selling vocal group The Tenors in the fifth annual One Night for One Drop imagined by Cirque du Soleil®. Taking place exclusively in the Zumanity Theatre at New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, the star-studded gala will also feature GRAMMY®-nominated rapper Redfoo from LMFAO, America’s Got Talent (AGT) winner Grace VanderWaal, international superstars Duo Sky Angels, AGT finalists Malevo and others.

For more than seven decades, William Shatner has captivated audiences with his portrayals in several blockbuster films and TV series. Using his contagious energy and undeniable charm, the beloved actor will enjoy a personalized role in the show, performing alongside artists from the world-famous Cirque du Soleil for the first time in his career.

“There are only a few people in this world that could resonate with fans across different generations like Mr. Shatner,” said Nicky and Laetitia Dewhurst, co-writers and directors for the show. “With his timeless personality, he is the perfect addition to our show, which focuses on the concept of time as it relates to humanity and Mother Earth.”

AGT winner, 13-year-old singer-songwriter and renowned ukuleleist Grace VanderWaal will also take the stage, charming the audience with her extraordinary musical talents as she sings “Light the Sky.” Hailed as one of today’s most talented rising young stars, she will delight the audience in a whole new way using her refreshing personality, charisma and charm.

Additional acts include world-famous rapper and music mogul Redfoo, who will appear onstage during a special scene with Shatner. Joining them will be Malevo, AGT finalists who brought the heat with their sizzling Malambo choreography, and Duo Sky Angels, whose stunning aerial routine recently won “The Golden Clown,” the highest honor at the 41st International Circus Festival in Monte Carlo.

Following the show, Redfoo invites VIP guests to “party rock” poolside as he performs at a circus and sideshow-inspired extravaganza. Boasting an illustrious reputation as son of legendary Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, he is also known for creating the dynamic duo LMFAO, smashing genres since 2006 with their unique rendition of electronic party music.

Presented by MGM Resorts International, the fifth edition of One Night for One Drop will transport the audience back in time to the center of a magnificent vintage circus. Individual, tax-deductible VIP tickets, which include the after-party complete with live entertainment, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and festivities, are available for $1,500, with show-only tickets starting at $225. Sponsorship packages and individual tickets are available at onedrop.org/onenight or by calling 1-844-33-WATER.
