The Diary of Anne Frank
The Diary of Anne Frank is a look into the mind and life of a normal teenage girl who was put through extraordinary circumstances. Anne and her family are forced into hiding while the Nazis take over Europe. Through this retelling, we see what life was like for Anne while being hidden from the world for two years. As WWII marches on, Anne grows and matures, questioning why she is being persecuted. It’s a compelling story that shouldn't be missed.Recommended for grades 5-12.

Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Show
The Dinner Detective is the largest, award-winning, interactive comedic murder mystery dinner show in the Chicagoland area. We are now running public and private shows in 34 cities across the country every week. The shows are set in the present day. Unlike other murder mystery dinner shows, here you will find no cheesy costumes, no recited campy dialogue and no hokey song and dance. Our performers are dressed just like everyone else, leaving all of the guests to suspect who is a part of the show and who is not. In many instances, guests are seated with the performers and don't even realize it until they die...the performers, that is! Our Detectives proceed to interrogate everyone and find clues as more people die. At the end of the night, prizes are awarded to the Top Sleuth who solves the crime. Each ticket includes a reception with tray passed appetizers, mixed green salad, choice of entree (beef, chicken or pasta), dessert, award winning interactive Murder Mystery show, prizes and so much more. **Every Saturday night through 12/26/2015.
