Discover River Campus During 2014-2015 Season

021O1622_2-extra grass-finalRGBCAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., June 3, 2014 – Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus on the banks of the Mississippi River in downtown Cape Girardeau invites patrons to discover the only university in Missouri with a separate campus dedicated to the visual and performing arts during its 2014-2015 season.

Season tickets sales for the upcoming season are now open to the public. The eighth River Campus season will offer a breadth of performing arts events by professional touring companies as well as the departments of Music, and Theatre and Dance at Southeast Missouri State University.

Bob Cerchio, assistant director of the Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts, who booked the touring series, says he is quite happy with the lineup.

“It’s always a challenge,” said Cerchio, “trying to book something new and interesting each season.  This year I’m really excited about the international focus:  events from the People’s Republic of China, Ireland, Argentina and Russia. Our audience can go ’round the world without leaving home,” said Bob Cerchio, assistant director of the River Campus.  And, being a jazz buff, it was a real coup being able to bring Peter Nero here to play a concert with our Southeast jazz students.  And, we’re getting the artistic director from Giordano Dance Chicago to work with participants in the American College Dance Association’s regional conference.  I’m always happy when we can combine great entertainment with great teaching.  So I have to say, this is going to be a terrific year all ’round.”

The River Campus Box Office is currently accepting season ticket orders only for the Symphony, Touring and Theatre & Dance Series or for a Master Series consisting of all three plus Peter Nero.

River Campus Box Office Manager Ellen Farrow said season ticket holders may retain their seat location from year to year, with the option to move to better seats when available. They also receive top priority for events added throughout the year, she said. Bob Cerchio confirmed that he is already in negotiation for a very special late addition, so season ticket status is especially important this year. The deadline for last year’s season ticket holders to retain their same seats for the upcoming season is June 13.

Season tickets will remain on sale through the opening day of the first show in each of the respective series, although the closer you get to the first performance, the lower will be your chance of having the same seats for every event. The last date for guaranteed same-seat season tickets is July 7.

Individual ticket sales begin July 14 through the River Campus Box Office and RiverCampusEvents.com or (573) 651-2265.

Unless otherwise noted, all Series events will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall.  Seating is divided into two price ranges. Top price seats include the orchestra and lower balcony sections; lower price seats are on the mezzanine and upper balcony. Tickets for the seven-event Touring Series are $275 and $233. Tickets for the five-event Symphony Series are $64 and $52. Tickets for the six-event Theatre and Dance Series are $90 and $84. Tickets for the Master Series (all three series plus Peter Nero) are $468 and $402. To view a seating diagram of the Bedell Performance Hall, visit RiverCampusEvents.com/ticket-information.

Touring Series 

This season’s Touring Series kicks off on Oct. 23 with The National Acrobats and Circus of the People’s Republic of China. Direct from Beijing, this internationally acclaimed company has won more than 20 gold and silver medals, toured 80 countries and influenced the pioneers of Cirque de Soleil. 

Anything_Goes_5705-resampled RGBEarl and Margie Holland, for whom the Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts is named, have selected “Anything Goes” as their special choice event this season at the River Campus. The second production in this year’s Touring Series, “Anything Goes,” will be performed Nov. 1. This saucy and splendid production won three 2011 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and Choreography. Peppering this Cole Porter first-class comedy are some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards, including “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “You’re the Top,” and, of course, “Anything Goes.” 

The Touring Series will continue with “Irish Christmas in America,” scheduled for Nov. 4. This wildly popular show features the Irish culture through the generations, into the world of mythology and out again, spinning itself out of the mists and into the familiar: “Silent Night,” “Little Drummer Boy” and “Carol of the Bells.” Superb music of the pipes, flutes, fiddles, button accordion and bodhrans are just the beginning of this great Irish night. 

Opening the spring, 2015, portion of the Touring Series will be “Tango Buenos Aires” on Feb. 3. One of Argentina’s great cultural exports, Tango Buenos Aires is known as the most authentic and uncompromising representative of the Tango and showcases one of the most exciting forms of dance in this amazing, sensual tour de force. 

Also featured in the Touring Series will be “Giordano Dance Chicago,” to be held March 24. “Giordano Dance Chicago” is known as America’s original jazz dance company for creating innovative choreography, often redefining and expanding the very definition of jazz dance and bringing this invaluable American art form to enthusiastic audiences internationally. 

The series will continue with the smash hit Broadway musical “Memphis” March 30. From the underground dance clubs of 1950s Memphis comes a hot new Broadway musical with a brand-new story to tell. Declared Best Musical three times with a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics’ Circle Award, from the first note, this show literally explodes off the stage.

The 2014-2015 Touring Series will come to a close when the Russian National Ballet Theatre returns to the River Campus to perform “The Sleeping Beauty,” often considered the finest achievement of the classical ballet, on April 24.” The Sleeping Beauty” is set to the music of Pyotr Illyich Tchaikowski with the original choreography of Marius Petipa. Audiences will lose themselves in the soaring music as the premier danseur, prima ballerina and corps de ballet tell the tale of royal intrigue, love and passion in a magical kingdom, where a princess is cursed at birth by an evil fairy to prick her finger and sleep until a kiss from a prince awakes her. 

All Touring Series events will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall.

It is highly regarded as one of the greatest works ever written.

This performance contains mild language.

Murder, spirits and mayhem will follow when the Theatre and Dance Series presents “Macbeth” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 30-Nov. 1 and Nov. 6-8, and at 2 p.m. Nov. 9 in the Wendy Kurka Rust Flexible Theatre.

With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and respect one another in a truly unique love story in the grand style of Rodgers and Hammerstein. 

The Department of Theatre and Dance will continue its tradition of interesting variety and diversity of styles with “Spring Into Dance 2015” scheduled for 7:30 p.m. April 16-18 and 2 p.m. April 19 in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall.
