Albany, Ga – Don’t miss Darton State College’s interactive Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre January 18 and 19. This year’s Murder Mystery play is Noir Suspicions, a hard-boiled comic mystery that everyone is sure to enjoy. The evening’s entertainment includes appetizers, an open bar, three-course meal, live band, and the play with prizes awarded to the audience members who solve the mystery.
The event is an annual scholarship fundraiser sponsored by the Darton College Foundation, along with the College’s Humanities Division. The interactive performance allows the audience to be involved and experience the story as if they were extras in a movie.
Noir Suspicions is about an ex-private eye, Rick Archer, who 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 of Rick’s innocence. A tribute to Casablanca with many references to the classic movie, Noir Suspicions is guaranteed to delight audiences.
Tickets are $50 per person and tax-deductible. Tickets must be purchased in advance by calling the Humanities Division (229-317-6554) or the Theatre Program (229-317-6875).
