Cara Moretto, Cory Boughton, Jacqueline Keeley, Elizabeth Loos, Tristan Tapscott, and Theresa McGuirk in Boeing-BoeingThe Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s production of Boeing-Boeing is a colorful rendition of French playwright Marc Camoletti’s classic farce – and that’s just the set and costumes. Scenic designer Susan Holgersson’s and costume designer Gregory Hiatt’s combined use of bright primary and secondary colors is stunning, with Holgersson’s seven-door set providing delight even before the opening of this comedy's proverbial curtain.

Valeree Pieper and Heather Herkelman in Mary PoppinsI don’t mean to alarm you, but during my recent interview with Heather Herkelman, the area performer revealed something shocking and rather upsetting: Hawaii, it turns out, isn’t perfect.

“There’s not much of a music scene or theatre scene,” says Herkelman, who returned in February from a year and a half spent living in Honolulu. “It’s beautiful, of course, and there’s just a laid-back happiness, a peacefulness, that made me want to live there. And they have a lot of Hawaiian music, obviously, from their heritage. But that’s about it. And yeah – not a lot of theatre.”

Cody King, Antoinette Holman, Chris Galvan, Janos Horvath, Brad Hauskins, Deanna Collins, and Ben Klocke in How I Became a PirateHow long does it take for an area production to become legendary? In the case of the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s How I Became a Pirate, I’d say about one week, because after the show’s debut staging in 2013, that’s how long it took four adult patrons, individually, to tell me it was maybe the best family musical they’d ever seen.

Natalie Anderson, Allison Willie, Autumn Loose, Lauren VanSpeybroeck, Krianna Walljasper, Ben Klocke, Gage McCalester, and Hailie Shemek in The Sound of MusicThere’s an effervescent joy permeating the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s The Sound of Music from beginning to end – minus the Nazi involvement, of course. Director/choreographer Jim Hesselman’s production exudes an infectious glee that, for me, lifts this Rodgers & Hammerstein classic to new heights of performance pleasure. And as Hesselman must know that audiences take great delight in its composers' cherished musical and remember it fondly, he plays to those happy memories.

One Plays a Little Mermaid, the Other Flounders: "Fancy Nancy: The Musical," at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse through May 15

Kaitlyn Casanova and Sara Tubbs in Fancy Nancy: The MusicalFrankly, I was surprised to see so many boys in attendance at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s Tuesday performance of Fancy Nancy: The Musical. Based on Jane O’Connor’s book Fancy Nancy & the Mermaid Ballet, the play would, I thought, appeal more obviously to girls, and prior to the opening of the (proverbial) curtain, I expected the lads populating my seat section to be disappointed. Fortunately, though, there’s plenty of content here that appeals to both girls and boys, and judging by the young males' positive reactions, they were delighted by the show – as was I.
