Our Previous Shows

Cafe Murder Logo.jpg

Cafe Murder was performed on August 24, 2018 at the Smithfield Inn in Smithfield, VA. It was directed by John B. Gillis and produced by Kathy Strozak & Gigi Smith. This was our first Mystery Dinner Theatre show and it was a huge success. We performed this show in the Garden area outside at the Inn. A nice dinner, complete with appetizer, entree, and dessert was included in the price of the show. All proceeds were donated to the Christian Outreach Center in Smithfield in the form of a check in the amount of $400.00.

Murder On Air Ad_edited.jpg

Murder On Air was performed at the Smithfield Inn on Friday and Saturday, May 31 & June 1, 2019. It was decided that two shows were needed this time around as the previous murder mystery show was quite popular! Again, this was performed in the lovely Garden at the Inn. A donation of $400 was given to Gimme Shelter of Smithfield.
