First Date: A Musical Comedy

Friday, February 26, 2021

Presented by City Circle Theatre Company

This production is professionally recorded and streamed directly 
to your home.

When they are set up on a blind date by their well-meaning friends, Casey and Aaron will have to sing and dance their way through the pitfalls and perils of the dreaded first date in this musical comedy fresh from Broadway! Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?

With a contemporary rock score, First Date gleefully pokes fun at the mishaps and mistakes of blind dates and gives hope that there could be that one perfect moment. FIRST DATE is written by Austin Winsberg, with music and lyrics by Alan Zachary & Michael Weiner. This production is directed by Elizabeth Tracey.

The Cast of First Date:
Robert Kemp
Jessica Murillo

Commonly asked questions about watching an ON DEMAND virtual City Circle performance:

How do I purchase tickets?
Using the link above, you will purchase your tickets through our partners at Select the performance name and the number of tickets you would like to purchase. You’ll pay with your credit card.

How many tickets should I purchase (e.g., What is a “device”?)
We ask that you purchase tickets just like you would at the theatre—one ticket for each person. Each ticket will allow one “device” (a computer, tablet, or iPad) to watch the show, so you can choose to watch together or separately.

How much do tickets cost?
Tickets are $12 for children and students, $15 for seniors over the age of 55, and $17 for adults. There is also a $25 “Supporter” ticket for those who would like to support the work of City Circle. Selecting the right ticket is on the “honor system”—thank you for choosing the correct ticket price, it makes City Circle possible.
