Dinner Theater event to be held in Rancho Santa Fe


The Village Church Community Theater will present “Rick Lowell, Private Eye,” a 1940s-style detective dinner theater radio drama on Friday, Oct. 4, and Saturday, Oct. 5, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Village Church located at 6225 Paseo Delicias in Rancho Santa Fe. A full-course dinner will be served in the beautifully redecorated Village Church Community Theater facility, which will be transformed into a live radio broadcast studio.

Come and enjoy the event as part of the live studio audience and feel the ambience of a radio theater show. It features “Rick Lowell, Private Eye” searching for a movie prop for “The Maltese Falcon.” The fun begins as he runs into Nazi agents, crooked dames, snooty art dealers, dangerous gangsters and movie actors playing English detectives. A spoof on the Humphrey Bogart movie “The Maltese Falcon” is packed with classic 1940s Los Angeles settings and colorful characters. The audience is invited to join the ambience by coming dressed in black and white.

All seats are reserved at $30 for single tickets or $224 for a table of eight. Reservations can be made at (858) 756-2441 X128 or
