Heist, Heist Baby!
Join dueling bands of bank robbers in the biggest hit this side of The Joe.
Little is as it seems in this corny comic stage caper. Your challenge will be in keeping up with the number of criminals, corpses, classic cinema references and volunteer audience cast members willing to take a crack at the craziest characters yet to come out of the theatre where the audience is the star. Play a part yourself or just sit back and try to crack the case of what’s really going down before the gig is up.

Church Street Daughtersi of the Late Unpleasantness Garden, Gun & Gin Club Mystery
The Church Street Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness have held their monthly Garden, Gun & Gin Club since back when such decent ladies knew their place in society, before miniskirts, meter maids, and men wearing shorts ruined everything. And certainly there had been more than a few meetings which dissolved into a bit of hair-pullin’, heir-provin’, and homemade hare-puddin’ pitching. Still until this new sort of female up and invited herself, the crème of Charleston’s ladies hadn’t ever had to dirty their white gloves with something so revoltingly common as a … murder!
Featuring the five o’clock shadow blue-haired detectives (the more masculine cast members, which might not be saying a lot), it’s a murder mystery with manners.
