About this project

About the Play:

Coco, the over-caffeinated owner of Coco's Coffee Shop & Café, stumbles upon an unlucky citizen of Pleasant Valley who has met his demise in her very own coffee shop. A casual glance at the scene reveals this was no accident. On top of how devastating this could be for business, she is considered a suspect, along with the rest of the town. The Inspector from the bordering county is determined to find the killer, but he could undoubtedly use some help. 

The cast serves the audience each course and stays in character.

Join us for a delicious 3-course dinner along with a night of fun, entertainment, and scandal when YOU become the jury to help figure out 'whodunit'!
