Current Show

The Sound of Murder

Foul Play Cafe, New Mexico’s premier murder mystery dinner theatre, presents its latest show you’ll die for – The Sound of Murder by Tim Hasse.

It’s the 1940’s, and we are going live in one hour here at the radio station of WMDR! If this show doesn’t go well, the station will go out of business. It certainly doesn’t help that the station owner’s son is trying to sabotage the show! The radio mystery becomes too real, when someone actually kicks the bucket. See if you can help this wacky cast of characters solve a mystery – all while enjoying a vintage, American meal.

Admission includes a four-course meal, a load of laughs, actor improvisation and audience participation.



Price of admission includes the show and your dinner. Specialty drinks and gratuity are not included.

  • Adults – $52.99
  • Youth (12 years and under) – $29.99
