Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The bridge in this view is the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge which connects Illinois to Missouri over the great Mississippi River. This building on the left here is the Cultural Arts Center at Southeast Missouri State University where I'm working all week as a carpenter and painter their upcoming production of Carousel. The bridge was completed in 2003, and the SEMO "River Campus," as its called, was completed in 2007 next to a historic 165 year old seminary building. When the Cultural Arts Center was completed, it was only appropriate (being on the banks of the Mississippi) that the first performance in the theatre was Big River.
