River Campus

Southeast Missouri State University

The Touring Series at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus has dazzled audiences since 2007 with shows and events by big-name performers like the Moscow Festival Ballet, Columbia Artists Management, and last month the musical “Evita.” But this fall the series is coming to an end and will be replaced by a new program.


The Touring Series plans to end in the 2019 -2020 academic year.

The Paper Doll Militia is an international theatre company who has earned the reputation of being pioneers in original circus theater. Based in Edinburgh and Los Angeles, the aerial dancers incorporate acrobatic work and storytelling in each theatrically driven performance.

They'll be performing at the River Campus this Friday as part their most recent tour, 'Warped.' It will be one of their first visits to the Midwest.

Today, the world premiere of a choral and orchestral piece will be performed at Southeast’s River Campus, marking their ten year anniversary. Composer and Cape Girardeau native, Dr. Gordon Goodwin captured the essence of what used to be St. Vincent's Seminary and emphasizes the role the Mississippi River plays in his piece “Timeless Banks and Shoals.” KRCU's Lindsey Grojean talked with Dr. Goodwin about the powerful composition, and his musical experiences during childhood and throughout his life as a teacher.

The Department of Music at Southeast Missouri State University will be performing their opera 'the Bartered Bride' on Jan. 20 and 22. In addition to the show being sung completely in English, the music is catchy. Many of the characters are refreshingly double-casted. KRCU's Lindsey Grojean sat in on one of their music rehearsals for this audio postcard.
