This a difficult time for all of us, financially and emotionally. All theatre arts organizations have been hard hit. Like you, we've never experienced circumstances like COVID-19. Before the pandemic we had been averaging 45 life performances a year with a combination of public, private and fundraising shows at a variety of locations. Last year our shows raised over $31,000 for various charities.


Adhering to all federal, state and local COVID-19 restrictions we do not see Murder Cafe returning to a stage or a dining room near you until Summer 2021. But, we remain steadfast in our commitment to you to provide a source of entertainment, laughter, amusement and relief.


How can you help?


If your personal circumstances allow, pleases consider making a donation to Murder Cafe. A gift in any amount will allow us to continue to provide you with radio shows and filmed murder mysteries. We ask you to help ensure that when the threat of COVID-19 finally has passed, and it will pass, we are able to hit the road again and welcome you and our entire community back to the engaging whodunits and comedy and mystery shows our followers have come to expect from us.

to the world of interactive theater.

"Murder Cafe is the boutique in a field of strip mall murder mystery companies. Frank Marquette is an artist and it shows. His shows are well written, the actors are professional and the costumes are outstanding. I would never think of hiring anyone else." - Regina Bea, owner Hudson House Inn and Hudson's Ribs and Fish.
