CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., June 6, 2013 – The Southeast Missouri State University River Campus invites patrons to “expect more” during the 2013-2014 season.

Season ticket sales are now open to the public for the 2013-2014 season. The seventh River Campus season will, again, offer a spectacular 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.

“You know, every season, keeping the touring series fresh and exciting is like the impossible dream. But this year we actually have ‘The Impossible Dream’ in ‘Man of La Mancha!’” he said. “With two classic Broadway musicals, the granddaughter of Maria and Baron Von Trapp, a magnificent Gypsy spectacle, the best dance St. Louis has to offer and a beautiful Russian ballet, what more could we ask? It’s nice when it all comes together in a great season of entertainment.”

Season tickets will remain on sale through July 5, with individual ticket sales beginning July 15. For more information on the 2013-2014 River Campus season, visit RiverCampusEvents.com.

The River Campus Box Office is currently accepting season ticket orders only for the Symphony, Touring and Theater/Dance Series or for a Master Series consisting of all three. Seating preferences are being taken in the order in which requests are received, although no seats will be officially assigned until season ticket sales end July 5. This allows the Box Office to take orders for the individual series while still giving Master season ticket holders priority.

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 special events, she said.

Seating in the Bedell Performance Hall 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 six-event Touring Series are $236 and $200. Tickets for the five-event Symphony Series are $107 and $89. Tickets for the six-event Theatre and Dance Series are $90 and $84. Tickets for the Master Series (all three series) are $433 and $373.

Tickets for individual events will go on sale Monday, July 15, through the River Campus Box Office and RiverCampusEvents.com or (573) 651-2265. To view a calendar of events for the upcoming season, visit RiverCampusEvents.com.

Touring Series

This season’s Touring Series kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 9 with “New Dance Horizons II.” This Dance St. Louis production features four world premieres from Madco, Saint Louis Ballet, Common Thread Contemporary Dance Company and Leverage Dance Theatre.

The second production in this year’s Touring Series will be “Gypsy Romance” on Oct. 24. The performance is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Direct from Budapest, Hungary, the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble’s rich and colorful repertoire entitles them to be regarded as one of the top touring groups in the world. Their performance is based on authentic music, costumes and dances, some of them collected in isolated villages, with elements dating back hundreds of years.

The Touring Series will continue with “The Sound of Christmas Featuring Elisabeth von Trapp,” scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Dec. 5. One of North America’s finest brass quintets, the Carolian Brass, joins vocalist and guitarist Elisabeth von Trapp, whose story inspired “The Sound of Music,” for some holiday favorites.

Also featured in the Touring Series will be “Man of La Mancha,” to be held at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 5. Enter the mind and the world of Don Quixote in this new production complete with the Tony Award-winning score and book that has inspired since the very first note of “The Impossible Dream” was heard on opening night. Against all odds, a man sees good and innocence in a world filled with darkness and despair. This lyrical and amusing adventure is a classic tale of the triumph of man over his own follies.

Earl and Margie Holland, for whom the Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts is named, have selected “West Side Story” as their special choice event this season at the River Campus. “West Side Story” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. April 15. From the first note to the final breath, this is one of the most memorable musicals and greatest love stories of all time. The score by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim is widely regarded as one of the best ever written. The Tony Award-winning choreography completely changed the language of Broadway dance.

The 2013-2014 Touring Series comes to a close with “Giselle” at 7:30 p.m. April 25. Leading dancers from across Russia have forged under the Moscow Festival Ballet to stage new productions of timeless classics such as “Giselle,” the tale of a peasant girl’s broken heart.
