As this distressing year comes to a welcome end, Circa ’21 has, after much discussion, made the very difficult decision to postpone its forthcoming comedy, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, until January 2022.

“With the explosion of Covid – 19 cases in the last few weeks, and our Governor reverting back to the restrictions of Stage 3, coupled with the huge post-Thanksgiving surge anticipated in the next 2 weeks, and the post- Christmas increase, it was abundantly clear we had to postpone the show.” said Circa ’21 Producer, Denny Hitchcock.  “Our main concern, as always is the health and safety of our guests, as well as that of our actors and staff.”

“We know thousands of other small  businesses across the country are also struggling to keep their heads above water long enough to reopen at full capacity. Many will not make it. I’m confident we will because of the amazing support we have had from our guests, not only over the past 43 years, but also since March, when all this began. For that, I sincerely thank everyone” Hitchcock said.

He added “I also want to thank our elected officials who have supported our request to have our business category changed from ‘theatre’ to ‘restaurant’. This will give us more flexibility with our capacity in the future.”

All reservations for THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG in 2021 will automatically be moved to the same seats on the relative date in 2022.

He concluded, ”All of us at Circa ‘21 look forward to resuming operations and are very excited to welcome back our guests beginning March 17 with THE CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES in YOU SMELL BARN.

The theater is open on Saturdays from 10-4 to purchase gift certificates, season tickets or to make reservations for an upcoming show. You may also call the ticket office on Saturday’s at 309-786-7733, ext. 2.  Gift certificates may also be purchased online at circa21.com.
