Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse


Join your friends and Trailways Travel’s friendly host and driver for a fun day out at the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse in Rock Island for the featured show – Church Basement Ladies! Rated: G


The Ladies are back with the musical that started it all! The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In Church Basement Ladies we meet the pastor, three kitchen cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation by preparing and serving the food. Like any great kitchen, problems are solved here as well. We see the four women handle a Lutefisk dinner, a funeral, an Easter fundraiser, and a wedding. They stave off potential disasters, have fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on due course. This musical comedy based on recipes, food, and change in the church is funny, heartwarming, and down to earth. It will bring back memories of many people you know from churches everywhere.


Enjoy a plated meal with your choice of 3 entrees and a delicious dessert of your choice already included. If you are a chocolate fanatic, you may want to choose their Signature Dessert – Circa ‘21 Chocolate Caramel Colossal, a warm chocolate Bundt cake covered in fudge, topped with vanilla ice cream, caramel, whipped cream and a cherry. Another favorite is the Strawberry Shortcake, a generous slice of pound cake topped with strawberries and whipped cream, of course you can add that scoop of ice cream if you choose!


Of course, another great treat is a performance from your waitstaff, more affectionately known as “The Bootleggers!” Circa ’21 is one of only two dinner theatres in the country that has a performing waitstaff.
