Yes, A Christmas Carol. Murder Cafe has been performing a dinner theater version of this holiday classic since 1998. Now in its 24th year, this family show is a tribute to the spirit of a traditional holiday. You will experience the joy of Christmas as you're invited to feast with the Cratchit family including Bob, Mrs. Cratchit, Belinda and everyone‘s favorite - Tiny Tim. In scenes right of out Dickens’ classic book, you’ll be treated to visits from Ebenezer Scrooge, his Nephew Fred, the Man of Goodwill, the ghost of Jacob Marley and the three spirits of Christmas. In addition, holiday carolers will entertain at your table.

What Clients Say

"I attended tonight's Murder Cafe performance and we had a great time! It was so much fun and the actors and actresses' performances were very good and their punch lines were funny too. The story line, the performers and audience interaction, all the clues (Even though I guessed wrong!), the Venue, food and service was all so good. I'm so glad we went. And to boot, we sat with a former coworker that I didn't know would be there and another nice, friendly family. Great time all around. The owner Frank Marquette, is an excellent talented actor, extremely friendly, genuine, honorable and respectful man! If you have a chance, go to his performances. I'm looking forward to going to their Christmas Carol performance."

"First I want to thank you for such a wonderfully fun evening. We weren't sure what to expect considering it was our first in-person event in over 15 months. I can't tell you how much fun the members had. Your troupe was so professional and funny and nice. Wanted to send a big THANK YOU to you all for making the event so much fun and memorable."

-Angela Gervino, CEO, Consult Gervino HR, October 22, 2021
