The Mystery of the Alien Invasion

Hosted by the Town of Crawford and the Pine Bush UFO & Paranormal Museum.

It's 1954 and an extraterrestrial spaceship has landed in Pine Bush during a meeting of Americans Against Saucer Secrecy. Dr. E.T. Mars, the convention's speaker, will seize the opportunity to claim that UFOs not only exist, but that an invasion is approaching.

Where is the alien that landed the ship? Evidence shows he has assumed human form and has made himself part of the convention. A conflict between the believers and the doubters escalates and a number of the guests are suddenly acting strangely. And then, there's a murder!

Saturday, June 18th at 7 pm
Town of Crawford Community Center, Pine Bush, NY

$55 per person, three course dinner, whodunit and prizes.

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."
