The musical is adapted from the Oscar-nominated 1977 movie.

Ticket prices are $56.55 for the evening dinner-and-show productions and $49.73 for the matinées, with reduced prices for students, seniors and groups of 12 or more available for all performances. For details, visit here.

Plated dinners will be served instead of the traditional buffet meals. Reservations are available through the Circa ‘21 box office. For reservations, contact the theater at 1828 3rd Ave., Rock Island, at 309-786-7733, extension 2.

The music includes Bee Gees hits such as “Stayin’ Alive,” “You Should Be Dancin’,” “More Than a Woman,” and “How Deep Is Your Love.” The film’s soundtrack won a Grammy Award for Album of the Year and spent a remarkable 120 weeks on Billboard’s album charts.

Making her Circa ‘21 directing debut, Amy McCleary, of Fort Myers, Fla., heads the production with Ron May as the show’s music director.
