Sleeping Beauty | January 31 – February 2

The Sleeping Beauty takes the whole family on a roller coaster of love, bravery and triumph. Two artists make their debut: Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider, whose conducting has been called “spine-shudderingly good,” and Saleem Ashkar, whose interpretation of Mendelssohn’s concerto has made waves across the world.

St. Louis Boat and Sports Show | January 30 – February 2

The Progressive St. Louis Boat & Sportshow returns to the America’s Center Convention Complex. In addition to all the boats and sporting gear featured at the show, you can visit several engaging activity areas, including, the Paddle Sports Pool, Kids Archery Range, Pirate Island, the Catch & Release Trout Pond, and even find a new best friend on Sunday as Stray Rescue of St. Louis sponsors the Puppy Bowl featuring animals for adoption.

Jersey Boys | January 31 – February 2

Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony® and Grammy Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon at the Fox Theatre.  They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story — a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.

Orchid Show | February 1 – March 22

Immerse yourself in a tropical oasis brimming with vibrant blooming orchids at the Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden, a once-a-year opportunity to view a rotating display of hundreds of orchids from the Garden’s expansive living collection. Peer through lush foliage, bubbling fountains, and trailing vines as you are transported to an exotic hideaway within the Orthwein Floral Display Hall.
