‘Grumpy Old Men’ Creaking Into Circa ’21

Continuing its 46th season with the return of a fantastically popular musical comedy based on a movie smash, the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse will treat patrons to the fighting and frolicking of GRUMPY OLD MEN: THE MUSICAL. Running through May 6, this audience favorite was deemed  “sometimes touching, sometimes raucous, and at all times enticing” by the City Journal-Tribune and is being brought to life by a sensational group of professional actors!

 GRUMPY OLD MEN: THE MUSICAL will be presented on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 5:30 p.m. and Wednesday matinées at 1:15 p.m. Pre-show entertainment featuring the theatre’s wait staff, the Bootleggers also will precede all performances. Ticket prices are $60.55 for the evening dinner-and-show productions and $53.73 for the matinées.

 Reservations are available through the Circa ’21 ticket office. For reservations, contact the theatre at 1828 3rd Ave., Rock Island or by calling 309-786-7733 ext. 2.

'Grumpy Old Men' Shuffles In At Rock Island's Circa '21

Based on the beloved 1993 movie starring Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Ann-Margret, and Burgess Meredith, GRUMPY OLD MEN: THE MUSICAL tells the story of two aging neighbors, Max and John, who have been feuding for more than 50 years. But when the beautiful and charming Ariel moves in across the street, the bickering neighbors’ rivalry is raised to new heights, and this theatrical delight raises the question: Can her love and compassion reunite their friendship? The answer comes in an endearing, riotous entertainment by composer Neil Berg and lyricist Nick Meglin, and a show that led Broadway World critic Dan Morois to state, “With a well-written, fun script laced with comic one liners, loveable characters, and a lighthearted musical score, GRUMPY OLD MEN exceeded all my expectations.”
