Noir Suspicions by Nikki Stern and David Landau
June 8th, 9th and 10th
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 innocence. 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.
Trees & Traditions
We had a great time at our 38th Annual Trees & Traditions Fundraising Gala! Singer Jonathan Karrant (jonathankarrant.com) was amazing. The food, by Hillcrest Catering, was exceptional. Wine and coffee from Sicilia Vineyards and Clark Avenue Coffee rounded out the evening. To all of you who joined us, I hope you had a wonderful evening. We’re already planning for next year, so mark your calendar for December 1, 2018!

Our children's programs are educational in nature, with a lot of fun thrown in! They are usually structured to include some instructional time, a craft or activity related to the topic, and home-made cookies to finish it off. We do annual programs in the spring, summer, and in December. We hope to increase our children's offerings in the near future, so keep an eye on this space!
