One of the better places I've been for a dinner theater. The wait staff do an excellent job of seeing to your needs.

Our group went to Circa 21 to see "Fiddler on the Roof" and we were not disappointed. Ticket prices include a delicious buffet dinner, which is served before the show. Drink and dessert orders were taken by a very efficient group of "bootleggers" who also entertained with some pre-show music. As a local theatre, Rock Island has much to be proud of at Circa 21. We look forward to going when we are in the area again next summer. The theatre also has concerts and a summer children's musical. This is a great place to take older children to introduce them to live theatre. Check it out!

Visiting family in Clinton, IA who bought tickets for the show "Fiddler on the Roof" to entertain us on a Sunday afternoon.

It begins with drinks and salad or soup served by "bootleggers," who are actually wait staff who sing the intro show and have parts in the play/musical. We then go to the buffet with several choices of mixed veggies, snow peas, red beans and rice, tilapia, pulled beef and potatoes and stuffed roasted pork loin carved at the buffet. I give the food a C+. Dessert is extra, but very good choices, good and tasty sundaes and even a low-sugar ice cream.

The SHOW was absolutely FIRST-RATE, fabulous, as good as anything I have ever seen on Broadway. The acting, voices and dancing were all spectacular. We were all shocked and pleased it could be so good in a regional theatre. I must give special kudos to the stage director/choreographer - the dancing and interaction on stage were absolutely spectacular in what I considered a small space -. I was thoroughly impressed.

I always enjoy dinner & a show, the fact they are available for afternoon matnee is nice also. The add on next door, The Speakeasy has a wonderful venue and makes for wonderful date nights, girls night, or anything in between.
