Great venue

We love the afternoon shows where they serve you at the table. The plays have been fantastic, the staff more than accommodating and prices are right

I try to visit this delightful dinner theatre on my holidays to Iowa. Great food and entertainment, with a second to none service. Wish they still had these kind of venues in the UK, sadly this is not the case. Well worth the visit.

A great performance was seen by a packed house Friday night Dec. 5th. You could feel the story come alive. The pre show by the bootlegs was full of energy and very entertaining. The tap was especially delightful. The buffet before the show had variety and quality. The turkey and stuffing simply great. Thanks all who made this performance memorable.

We were there Dec. 4th for a Thurs. Matinee. We saw White Christmas and it was excellent. I was with a group of senior citizens and several of us are diabetics. Couldn't you have had one meal choice that would have been easier for a diabetic? Sugary carrots was the only vegetable. Then, there was choice of turkey with a... More

They have several shows a year. They have some for kids around Christmas and then other musicals later in the year more geared for adults. The Bootleggers (waiters and waitresses ) also entertain each show. My favorite show has been The Church Bsmt Ladies.

Went with friends and had a wonderful time. Great performance and the food was wonderful. I have been there a few times and always enjoyable. Staff is part of the performing act. They get out there and hustle and make you feel very special. Anyone who has the time and enjoys live performances should take in Circa 21

Always a great show here! Food is good and show prices are reasonable. Love it. We saw Fiddler on the Roof last time and it was a flawless performance!

This is at least the 4th time my husband and i have been to the Circa 21 Theater, we are from MN or would go more often, but go when we are in the area. This production was "Funny, You Don't Look Like A Grandmother" and it was a delight. It is a musical comedy that shows how Grandmas have... More

This is a dinner playhouse. The dinner is a buffet style, and was ok. Not much of a verity. The performance was excellent. The waiters and waitresses do a 15-minute pre-show singing songs from the 50's, 60's and 70's. They were known as the Bootleggers. They were very good. The show we saw was: "Funny, you don't look like a... More
