Enjoy signature items from 13 Cape Girardeau restaurants and businesses participating in the annual restaurant hop on Tuesday, April 17, benefitting Southeast Missouri State University’s Conservatory of Theatre and Dance.

Each eatery will serve its signature item, and participants can choose to go to any or all of the participating restaurants and bakeries in the three-and-a-half-hour time span. Restaurant hop participants will be directed to the tables involved at the respective restaurants, and theatre and dance students will assist the patrons at each restaurant. Tickets for the hop are $10.
“This is a great opportunity for community members and business owners to support our senior students academically and financially, and to meet and talk with them personally,” said Dr. Kenn Stilson, chair of The Conservatory of Theatre and Dance. “We are very grateful for these participating restaurants in their support of the University. This is a way to experience the great local fare at Cape’s restaurants at a very reasonable price.”
The Theatre and Dance Society, host of the event, will use proceeds to fund the annual Senior Showcase April 17. The Senior Showcase is an opportunity for graduating seniors to perform in front of a variety of agents and casting directors from Actor’s Connections in New York City and Los Angeles.
Tickets may be purchased through Southeast’s Conservatory of Theatre and Dance, by calling (573) 651-2149 or on the night of the event at the door of all participating restaurants.
