MBG - Orchid Show 2Orchid Show – February 1 – March 23
The plants in your yard may be brown and lifeless, but you can enjoy beautiful, fragrant flowers at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The 2014 Orchid Show offers visitors a once-a-year opportunity to see a rotating display of hundreds of orchids from the Garden’s expansive permanent living collection inside the Orthwein Floral Display Hall. This year, the show will celebrate orchids of South America.

Opus – January 31 – February 8
Head on over to the The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis for Opus! The performance details the trials of a string quartet that hires a talented but inexperienced young woman with just four rehearsals before the biggest performance of the group’s collective career. Onstage the music flows effortlessly, even though their relationships unravel behind the curtain. Not only is it a tale of chasing after one’s dreams, but it delves into what friendship and camaraderie ultimately produce.

Embark on an epic adventure to a time when the wooly mammoth roamed the earth at “Titans of the Ice Age,” the newest movie to come to the Saint Louis Science Center OMNIMAX!
