"Bullets in the Bathtub"
January 11th - April 13th:

Welcome to the 1920's where bathtubs were made for one thing only. To make gin! (Ok, maybe two things). Lots of gangsters are showing up at "Cherry's Speakeasy" to talk about the turf war going on between the Corneolis and the Buttafuccos. Just when we think things are going to settle down, in comes Harry Hyde, (the famous Russian mobster). He sure does know how to make enemies! Deadly ones!I guess the local constable, Doyle Lonnegan, will come and solve the crime, but not before things get pretty wild!You'll meet crazy characters like Red E. Mix, (the local concrete salesman), Trixie, ( the owner of Cherry's) and many others before we find out who put "da finger" on Harry's Hyde! Was it Larry 'The Rug'? Was it Joey 'The Lips'? Or maybe you?? Don't forget to bring a gangster hat, tommy gun and your favorite flapper!



"Muuurder in Maaaybury"
April 19th - July 27th:

Welcome to Maaaybury the quietest little town in the whole country. But that darn Earnest T Sass keeps showing up and spoiling everything. He's always throwing rocks at the fellas (like Otis, Opie and Andy) and flirting with the ladies (like Helen, Aunt D. and Thelma Lou). Why, this is an Ice Cream Social! It's just indecent is what it is! Join us for an exciting evening of murder, mystery and mayhem at the funniest dinner theater show in St. Louis. Get ready to have fun cuz someone just might put Earnest in his place!



August 2nd - November 2nd:

Calling all Zombies! Calling all Zombies! Come to the murder mystery show that thinks outside of the coffin! That's right! We've got the perfect show for you, whether you are a Zombie fan or not! Why?Because this show has it all! High drama! Comedy! A love story! And Zombies, of course! You, (yes, you), can play a Zombie, (or not), it's up to you, but we do promise lots of fun for everyone!
