Always a wonderful time.

We went to see "White Christmas," with my bonus daughter. It was a wonderful show, as always. Circa really knows how to entertain you.

We saw Sound of Music today at the matinee. Wonderful production! Awesome meal. And the Bootleggers did an awesome job of entertaining on stage and off. Highly recommend if you've never been.

This is a fantastic place to visit ! They have a buffet style food service and excellent wait staff who are also performers as well. There are at least two meats available and a large assortment of veggies and other foods available,prime rib is not unusual. The site is an old remodeled theatre and part of the deal is food...

I have been there numerous times over the years. Never disappointed... The last two shows have been remarkable.. The Sound of Music cast couldn't be more perfect. Les Mesiralles ( Forgive the spelling) was Good from beginning to end. Saw a Bobby Darren impersonator a year or so ago that if you closed your eyes, you would have thought it... More

Love going to this old theater. Broadway quality plays and musicals. The food is not gourmet quality but average. The atmosphere and performance make this a winner.

Circa 21 never fails to provide high quality theatrical productions in our hometown. Through the years I have seen numerous plays and musicals in their theater ranging from big name shows, like "Cats" to lesser known shows that were created for off Broadway use. The professional performers that are brought in continue to improve with each season, and they enlist... More

This was our first time at Circa 21. The friends we went with have been several times and have always raved about it. We went to Les Miserables. Show was very good. Food was not. All the meat entrees had too much seasoning and they did not pair well together. This was Valentine's weekend so it was a disappointment. We... More
