Bistro Romano’s Mystery Dinner Theatre is pleased to announce our new season! Come and join us For the ‘Crime of your Life!’ Here’s your chance to partake in a unique and exciting theatrical production. The cast sets the stage for intrigue, murder, and mayhem. The audience holds the key to unlock the mystery and uncover the conspiracy. Right before your eyes, the plot thickens as you get to know the personalities and hear the clues that obviously identify the murderer or do they? Who knows? You could be the murderer!

The Unlikely Return of Shortlocks Holmes:

There have been a series of murders that the police just cannot solve. In order to crack the case, Detective Lestrat arranges to bring in the last living descendant of Sherlock Holmes to use the deductive reasoning skills he has no doubt inherited from his great ×6 grandfather. Shortlocks Holmes, the descendant, arrives on the scene after being lured there under false pretenses and wants nothing to do with the case. In fact, he wants nothing to do with his ancestor, his legacy, or the mystery solving skills he possesses. He only wants to pursue his music career. To entice him to take the case, the detective has also brought along Watson, the last descendant of John Watson, expecting the two to be best friends. Rather, the two hate each other. Truly, deeply, hate. Then...people start to die. Reluctant as he may be, Shortlocks decides to help the detective solve the case once and for all.
