Circa '21's new production of "Peter Pan" takes off this weekend, with special ticket offers.

In this classic musical about a flying boy who won't grow up, the Circa stage is transformed into the magical world of Neverland, filled with fairies, pirates, Indians and The Lost Boys.

Circa '21 is partnering with the world's foremost theatrical flying company, ZFX, for this landmark production. ZFX has more than a dozen Broadway credits, including "Wicked," "Peter Pan," "Fiddler on the Roof," Martin Short's "Fame Becomes Me" and "Saturday Night Fever."

Through July 5, excluding Friday (June 19), patrons can purchase four tickets for dinner and the show for $100. The offer also includes tickets for six for $150.

You must mention this offer at the time of the reservation. It is not valid on previously purchased tickets. Individual tickets typically range from $40.56 to $46.28 per adult ($2 off for seniors), and $27.04 for students 18 and younger.

"Peter Pan" will run (and fly) through Aug. 29 at Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse, 1828 3rd Ave., Rock Island. For ticket information, call (309) 786-7733, ext. 2, or visit www.circa21.com.
