"Murder at Cafe Noir" auditions for dinner theater

AUDITIONS: August 21st and 22nd at 7pm at Capitol Theatre 415 S Main St.

SYNOPSIS: Enjoy food and drinks during ACT’s first dinner theatre production in decades! This 1940s detective story features Rick Archer, P.I., out to find a curvaceous runaway on the forgotten island of Mustique, a place stuck in a black-and-white era. The owner of the Cafe Noir has washed ashore, murdered, and Rick’s quarry was the last person seen with him. Rick employs his hard-boiled talents to find the killer. Was it the French madame and club manager, the voodoo priestess, the shyster British attorney, the black marketeer, or the femme fatale? The audience votes twice on what they want Rick to do next, and these decisions can affect the outcome of the play!
