You are invited to join our 6th annual All Hallows Feast:


"Noir Suspicions" by David Landau and Nikki Stern.

Our murder-mystery dinner theatre!

In this hard boiled comic mystery sequel to the ever-popular Murder at Cafe Noir, ex-private eye Rick Archer is now the confused manager of Cafe Noir on the island of Mustique. He is confronted with a corpse on the dock, a mysterious femme fatale, a French blackmailer and a businessman who wants both the cafe and the woman. Rick is arrested after the blackmailer is murdered in his club. It is up to the audience to convince the magistrate that he is innocent. A tribute to Casablanca with many references to the classic movie, Noir Suspicions is guaranteed to delight audiences whether or not they are familiar with Murder at Cafe Noir.

While you help us unravel the mystery, you'll enjoy a fine meal prepared by Omar's Kitchen. The show plays weekends from October 7 - October 30. The house opens at 6:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, with the action and meal beginning at 7:00 p.m. On Sundays, the house will open at 12:30 p.m. with the action and meal beginning at 1:00 p.m. Advanced ticket purchases are absolutely required, so Omar and his team know how many and what kind of meals to make. Regular tickets are $35 and reduced rate tickets are $33.


New this year! Wine and beer will be available for purchase
