Detectives Comedy dinner to be held Friday at Roca

Published 11:25 am Thursday, October 29, 2015

A birthday party will be held at 7 p.m. Friday at Roca Restaurant and Bar for little Tony, a mafia member’s son or at least that will be the guise during the production of “Badfellas,” a performance by the Detectives Comedy Dinner Theatre group.

“This is our Halloween show, and it is more of a comedy than mystery,” director of the Detectives Comedy Dinner Theatre Eric Riggs said.

For more than four years, the Detectives Comedy Dinner Theatre has been offering dinner shows in Vicksburg.
