MURDER AT CAFE NOIR
by David Landau and Nikki Stern
Every Friday and Saturday night in September. Show starts at 7 pm (doors open at 6 pm).
The Opera House Stage Co. presents the Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, Murder At Café Noir, Friday and Saturday evenings, the four weekends of Sept. Scenes of the show will alternate with courses of dinner at Café Noir.
The setting is a sleazy nightclub on a remote island in the Caribbean. It's a hangout for criminals, women of the evening and people escaping from trouble in other parts of the world. This show is also a tribute to the Humphrey Bogart movies of the 1940's.
There are three murders, and everyone is a suspect. Audience members will be invited to crack the case and identify the killer(s). An additional contest will challenge the audience to identify character names and famous quotes from classic Bogart movies. Prizes will be awarded to successful sleuths and Bogart fans.
