Event Details

Show A: B.I.N.G.Ohhh Murder!

The Strasburg Rail Road is the destination for a local church fundraiser.  A traveling B.I.N.G.O Troupe introduced the church board to a great way to raise funds for a mission trip –  playing the beloved game… but no one said anything about the B.I.N.G.O caller being ‘chipped’ off!  The guests are possible suspects, real Bingo games are called and played for clues!  A ‘jackpot’ will be awarded to all Bingo players at the end of the night!  Door prizes will be awarded and even if you never see B-3 you might win a door prize if you correctly guessed the ending! If you like Bingo, you will have a fun time at this murder mystery crazy game from the twisted crew at Act 1 Productions.


Show B: The Goober’s Carnival Murder Mystery!

Ma Goober and her lovable, cheesy boys are back on the Strasburg Rail Road.  Audiences love their hillbilly homespun puns and incredibly poor luck at stumbling over murder mysteries! This season the Goobers are in Strasburg for a local carnival.  When the boys are hired to scoop the animal cages, they find that the fertilizer is wonderful for plant life and decide to create a special blend for their own pig farm.  Unfortunately, the dunk tank clown, a nemesis to the Goober boys, has been found in the empty tank, belly up, clinging tightly to a bag of the homemade fertilizer and the Goober boys are being charged with murder in the dunking of the clown!  The audience has to figure out ‘whodunit?’ in this fun murder mystery.


Show C: The Monster Mashed, the Musical?

One night only this season aboard the Strasburg Rail Road is this fun, twisted take on the 60’s song.  Come dressed in your twisted Halloween best and you could win a ‘crazy good’ prize.  Who bumped off Dr. Dementia’s monster?  Was it Elvira, Sister Ghoul, Drackie (with a lisp) or even the demented doctor?  Debi Irene Wahl’s fun show was recently published by Lazy Bee Scripts in the UK and it won’t be available for more than this one night on the Strasburg Rail Road.
