Performed by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama

Red-eye travelers on the westbound 518 are in for a surprise when first one passenger, and then another, mysteriously drop dead right before their eyes — and just as the train is halted by a rock slide in an isolated canyon.  Because the pair appears to have been poisoned, anyone and everyone in the train dining car is a suspect!

Unable to call for help, the eccentric passengers — including two newlyweds, an astronomy professor, a sports recruiter, a CEO, a movie star, an aspiring musician, and others — try to work together with the waitstaff to find the murderer before they reach their destination and the killer escapes for good!  Unfortunately, not everything (or everyone) is as it seems.

This family-friendly mystery is sure to keep the audience guessing right up until the train pulls into the station.  Hold on tight — Murder on the 518 is quite the ride!

Woe falls upon Chuck Wagon’s wagon train, stranded in the notorious Whistling Skull Rock outside the tiny town of Vinegar Bottle, famed for its “I’m O.K. You’re O.K. Corral” and crawling with villains and bandits!  This fast-paced spoof of the Old West is filled with a goofy stable of hilarious characters:  our trailblazin’ hero, Chuck Wagon; our sweet heroine, Candy Cane; and the villainous crooked card dealer, Smiling Slade Clagget.  The wagon train gets robbed by the mysterious outlaw known as “The Snake,” but Chuck is accused of being the bandit through a crazy plot twist.  Proving his innocence isn’t easy...  but it is a hoot!  Who can forget the host of other characters that add extra spice to this wild romp?  There’s Wild Bill Hiccup, the Hamm sisters (Virginia and Glazed), fascinating Señorita Juanita and Clagget’s evil ally, Sue Flay.  Toss in an election for the town mayor, an old Spanish land grant and some Western entertainment.  Then mix with mirth, action, and a laugh a minute, and your audience will be rollin’ in the aisle by the time the wagons start rollin’ out!  With simple sets and easy rehearsals, produce this show and you’ll experience the hysterical best of the west!
