Enjoy Local Fare, Support Southeast Theatre and Dance at 2017 Restaurant Hop

Enjoy signature items from 13 Cape Girardeau restaurants and businesses participating in the annual restaurant hop on Tuesday, April 18, benefitting Southeast Missouri State University’s Conservatory of Theatre and Dance. The restaurant hop, which takes place from 5 to 8 p.m., includes the following restaurants: Andy’s Frozen Custard, Bistro Saffron, Chocolate Works, Cup ‘n Cork, Faithfully Fed, Jimmy John’s, Marco’s Pizza, Mississippi Mutts, My Daddy’s Cheesecake, Pho8, Primo Vino!, Stevie’s Steakburger and The Bar. 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-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 fantastic opportunity for community members and business owners to not only support our senior students financially, but to meet and talk with them personally.” said Dr. Kenn Stilson, chair of The Conservatory of Theatre and Dance. “The value alone is worth coming out for. The tickets are only $10, which is only $1 per restaurant. 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 May 5-6 and its summer Theatre and Dance Academy. 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 May 14-18 and Los Angeles July 24-31. 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.
