Circa ‘21 favorite, Robert Shaw, returns to the stage this November for a Rock ‘N’ Roll Holiday Extravaganza! Shaw will be taking on the role of The King himself, Elvis Presley! We hosted this tour on December 7 th , 2017 and it was so well received many wanted to see it again in 2018. The popularity was anticipated by the Circa 21 management and they scheduled a repeat for 2018.The Holidays were always a very special time for The King of Rock n’ Roll. For Elvis, the holidays meant a time of sharing with friends, family, and even complete strangers! No expense was spared when it came to decorating Graceland for Christmas, and Elvis took the same approach when it came time to recording holiday music. During his lifetime, he released three albums of songs to celebrate the season, which have since been re-packaged and re-configured many ways.

Here is Rydell High’s senior class of 1959: duck-tailed, hot-rodding “Burger Palace Boys” and their gum-snapping, hip-shaking “Pink Ladies” in bobby sox and pedal pushers, evoking the look and sound of the 1950s. Head “greaser” Danny Zuko and new (good) girl Sandy Dumbrowski try to relive the high romance of their “Summer Nights” as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as “Greased Lightnin’,” “It’s Raining on Prom Night,” “Alone at the Drive-In Movie” recalling the music of Buddy Holly, Little Richard, and Elvis Presley that became the soundtrack of a generation.  Itinerary: 7:30 AM – Depart from Sam’s Club parking lot behind Burger King Additional pickups available in route. 10:30 AM – Arrive at The Fireside Theatre, Ft.

By on Oct 5, 2018 in |

The Creation MuseumBe prepared to experience history in a completely unprecedented way. The state-of-the-art 75,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings. The area within the museum has been divided into unusually configured spaces that allow for personal interaction with each of the 160 exhibits. Several parts of the museum, including the stunning forty foot high portico with its cliff wall and floor to ceiling glass windows, flaunt open spaces and remarkable designs. Walk through the Garden of Eden. See the scaffolding, smell the freshly cut timbers in the busy work site of Noah’s Ark. Dig up dinosaur bones. Facing the Allosaurus We are pleased to announce the addition of a world-class dinosaur skeleton, an Allosaurus fragilis, to the array of exceptional exhibits at the Creation Museum. Recently donated to the museum, this specimen is believed to have one of the six or seven best-preserved Allosaurus skulls ever discovered. Dragon Legends Regale yourself with delightful artwork and other beautiful adornments as you stroll beneath extraordinary Chinese dragons. Learn about famous encounters with these incredible beasts from China, Africa, Europe, the Americas, Australia, and the Middle East. Discover what ancient historians have written about these creatures, and examine armaments that may have been used by valiant dragon-slayers. Dr. Crawley’s Insectorium They’re creepy and crawly, and they’re on display at the Creation Museum. Some insects are big, such as one that weighs almost half a pound, and many are long, like our branch-like stick insects. If you’re wondering, there really is a Dr. Crawley who generously donated his world-class insect collection to the Creation Museum. He wants museum guests to discover the fascinating design our Creator has built into bugs.
