All About Cape: Shows, Musicals, and Concerts!

Feb 18, 2019

Last year’s hunting statistics are in, and a total of 2,937 deer were harvested in Cape Girardeau County in 2018, according to the Missouri Department of Conservation. If you’re an avid hunter, it’s never too early to be thinking about next deer season. Find the perfect rifle for your buck at the Missouri Gun and Knife Show, coming February 22 -24, 2019 at the Show Me Center. More than 450 tables will boast shotguns, knives, accessories and more – just waiting to become part of your collection.

Looking for something a little less woodsy! The River Campus celebrates the fine arts with the Tony-and Oscar-winning musical “Sister Act.” Based on the classic movie starring Whoopi Goldberg, “Sister Act” follows a lounge singer on the run as she goes into hiding at a convent and forms an all-nun choir. What ensues is toe-tapping music, comedy and a delightfully happy ending. Make plans to see “Sister Act” live from February 20-24 at the Bedell Performance Hall, located on the River Campus.

If you prefer country hits, ”What If” I told you Kane Brown was bringing his "Live Forever" tour to the Show Me Center on Friday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m.? Only 25 years old, this young star has gone multiplatinum since his first studio album debuted in 2016. Opening for him are Jimmie Allen and Granger Smith, also known as Earl Dibbles Jr., his tobacco-chewing, overall-wearing alter ego. This concert is sure to be a party. As he sings, “I don’t know how heaven could be better.”
