Dead Men Ride No Rails: a Murder Mystery Live Performance

A body has been discovered on the platform of the Strasburg Rail Road! While everyone aboard the train may be a suspect, there are four guests not on the manifest, each of them hiding a secret that could change the course of their lives forever.

Detective Holden of Scotland Yard, on holiday in America, is charged with the task of bringing the killer to justice. Lady Windlebee is on holiday; the Duchess of Essingwedge is mourning the loss of her husband; Admiral Covington is on a fact-finding mission for her majesty The Queen; and the handsome Arthur Broadshur has a mysterious past, that no one can quite discern.

Each may have motive and opportunity, but it is up to Detective Holden to get to the bottom of this mysterious murder and bring the killer to justice before the train returns to the station and the culprit disappears never to be seen or heard from again!

This exclusive and intimate event, limited to just 20 guests per show, features a professional cast of five (5) actors who have performed around the world, with companies including Royal Caribbean Cruises, Holland America, Celebrity Cruises, Broadway Asia, Live Nation Concerts, or locally at Lancaster’s American Music Theatre, Sight & Sound Theatres, and The Fulton Theatre, among others.
