NEW HAVEN, Mo. - For the third year, the Hermann German-American Club is sponsoring the Mother's Day Show at the Showboat Theatre on Sunday, May 10 at 2 p.m. Tickets are now on sale at the Hermann Welcome Center on Market St.
Rehearsals have begun for this popular event that celebrates Mom's special day. Music includes Gershwin, Pop, Country, Classical, and Patriotic with songs like "Count on Me", "I Got Rhythm", "Summertime", "The Man I Love", and others.
