WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 2015 -- "ROUTE 66" -- Circa 21 Theatre, Rock Island, IL

In Circa '21's tradition of presenting musicals that feel as comfortable as your favorite sweater, Route 66 is a new romantic musical comedy featuring catchy story songs and clever down home lyrics that move to the rhythm of America. It is about two people falling in love not only with each other but also with the good ole U.S.A! The delicious Circa 21 plated lunch is included, and you can choose to have your dessert after lunch or at intermission. To further enhance your fun day out, we have also arranged a morning tour of the Quad City Botanical Center, which is comprised of an indoor tropical atrium, a physically enabling garden, a G-Scale garden train exhibit (seasonal), other thriving outdoor gardens, an educational greenhouse, a three-season event canopy, and gift shop. As a public garden they maintain hundreds of plants ranging from tropical varieties to regional zone 5 perennials. A garden for all seasons, the tropical atrium is splendid throughout the winter months, and the rare conifer collection is unique to the Quad Cities.
