ACT presents "Murder at Cafe Noir"

Aberdeen Community Theatre is pleased to present “Murder at Café Noir,” a 1940s-style murder mystery with audience participation. The Cafe is a secluded island hideaway, populated by colorful and suspicious characters - and when someone turns up dead, there are plenty of possible motives! Will private eye Rick Archer crack the case before anyone else meets an untimely demise?
