Community events

The bright sunny days of spring are a welcome change to winter's bluster. And with the warmer temperatures comes a host of local events.

The Southeast Missouri Home Builders Association Home and Garden Show kicks off today at the Show Me Center. More than 100 vendors will participate in this weekend's exhibit, some offering special show-only pricing and giveaways.

The Southeast Missouri State University Department of Theatre and Dance will be giving a performance of Harper Lee's "To Kill A Mockingbird" at 7:30 p.m. March 29 and 31 and April 1 and 2 and at 2 p.m. April 2 and 3. All performances will take place in the Wendy Kurka Rust Flexible Theatre at the River Campus.

The touring musical production of "Spamalot," which had a prior performance at the River Campus canceled due to travel trouble, has been rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. March 25 in the Bedell Performance Hall. The River Campus box office reports that tickets are still available for the performance.

The Southeast Missouri State University baseball team, off to another strong start, will host a three-game series this weekend against Wright State at Capaha Field. Games start at 1 p.m. today and Saturday and noon on Sunday. There are few things more enjoyable on a warm afternoon than watching the Redhawks play at Capaha.

Cape Girardeau is not lacking things to do, with activities for all ages taking place. Take advantage of these great opportunities. You'll be glad you did.
