Orcutt Community Theater Presents: Mama Won't Fly

by Nikki Stern and David Landau
Directed by: Meredith Brough

A body has been found on the beach of Tobago Cay, and Rich Archer, a P.I. in a trench coat looking for a rich man’s runaway daughter, must solve the case to save her. To do that he must investigate the sleazy regulars at Café Noir, the island’s only nightclub, to find the truth before he’s caught in the murderer’s crosshairs.

July 21 & 22, 28 & 29 at 6pm

Orcutt Community Theater presents a unique and atmospheric interactive Mystery Dinner Theater Fundraiser directed by Meredith Brough, “Murder at Café Noir,” a comic tribute to the Humphrey Bogart Movies of the 1940’s. To be performed at Moxie Café, 1317 W. McCoy Lane, Santa Maria, where a catered gourmet dinner evoking the French Caribbean island setting and a no-host bar (wine and beer only) will be served as a piano and mysterious sultry chanteuse provide period musical accompaniment. The black and white movie theme will be evident in décor and costumes, and patrons are asked to join the fun by dressing in either black and white and/or 1940’s attire.
