Early Bird tickets for "Noir Suspicions", this year's October murder mystery dinner theatre show.

Our final summer melodrama opens August 19!


All four of our summer shows are written by talented local artists with our venue and audiences in mind.

"Wheeling and Dealing" or "No Pedaling Allowed" written and directed by Sandra Hennings Miller. Playing August 19 - September 10.

Old Poppie owns a declining bicycle shop and has Hans, a young apprentice from Germany, working for him. Hans has been interested in all the talk about making bicycles gas propelled. He has heard that Henry Ford is close to finding an internal combustion solution. Hans is also working on an engine design. Everyone has a plan of some sort. Hans plans to team up with Henry Ford and help Poppie save the shop, and perhaps impress Poppies granddaughter, Roberta. Roberta. Roberta has a plan to make Hans notice her. Hattie, the widow down the street, has a plan to make Poppie husband number three. A. T. Rocious, a villain who has overheard Hans talking to his friend, Ben, about his engine, plans to impersonate Henry Ford and steal the engine and the glory.
