Circa ’21 Christmas Story Musical

December 10, 2023 @ 3:45 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us on Sunday, December 10, for the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse holiday performance of A Christmas Story musical.

Reserved seating for this event is mostly at tables of two, with a few tables that can seat four or six people.  Single person reservation requests will be assigned by the Club to a table with other Club members or you can request to be seated with other known parties attending the performance.  Free on-street parking while attending the event is available within a block of the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse, located at 1828 3rd Avenue, Rock Island.

The classic holiday movie is brought to life in this delightful Tony-nominated musical!  Set in the 1940’s fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, the musical follows 9-year-old Ralphie and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts: an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle.  Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: from the leg lamp to the bunny suit! The delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping full-ensemble numbers such as Ralphie to the Rescue!, A Major Award, Sticky Situation, Up on Santa’s Lap, Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana, and the inevitable You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out!

Doors open at 3:45 PM.  Plated meals with choice of entrée are served from 4 to 5 PM, Bootleggers at 5:15 PM, and the musical performance begins at 5:45 PM.  Your discounted $60 per Club member Plus 60 ticket will be ready for you to pick up under your last name with the Plus 60 group at the ‘Will Call’ lobby vestibule window when you arrive at Circa ’21 for this production that includes dinner, show, tax and gratuity for the meal portion of the evening!  You have the option of ordering bar service, appetizers and/or dessert menu items from your Bootlegger at your expense.
