Show Descriptions

  • When the West was Wild
  • The year is 1874; the town of Fillmore is booming, there are rumors of a gold strike in the hills and opportunity is everywhere! Of course these elements DO tend to attract folks of dubious character. Could it be you're hoping to win the Red Rock Saloon's Annual Poker Tournament? Or help Mayor Townsend win the next election? Maybe you just want to partake of Miss Kitty Kanyon's generous hospitality? Just like a stampede, once things get started, there's no stopping and when the dust settles, who'll be left to tell the tale? "To a man with no future-comes a girl with a past!"
  • Night Train to Murder ('30s)
  • World famous director Caesar Deville and his crew have just completed location work on the new Pandamount Pictures film "Night Train to Murder". Everyone is excited because Prohibition has just ended and, for now, anything goes: maybe even murder! Our cast will bring you mystery, music, and a bit of mayhem. Sit back and play along with us; who knows what may happen right before your eyes! "Maybe true love and a pure heart can even bring back the dead."
  • Bugle Boy Murders of Company C (40s)
  • It is 1942 and "Big Band" leader Harry McCain is in route to his next USO show set in downtown Hollywood. He has many GI's in tow as they are returning home for Christmas and he has a special show ready to perform for them. Enter Vicki Carlson, his lead singer. She has just signed a contract for her first movie and Harry is not pleased. She seems to have forgotten - she has a contract with him. Aspiring singer Adele Adieu has just left Nebraska for the "City Lights." She has been following the band for the last three months and if Vicki leaves, she will strike while the iron is hot. Lets hope she doesn't get burned. Don't forget Harlton Cheston and Doris Night, two of Hollywood's biggest stars. They are traveling with Harry to appear at his next USO show. Will they make it there together? Murder, Mystery & Intrigue fill the air as this train makes a pit stop to murder. This interactive murder mystery is filled with audience participation - so get out your old uniforms and period costumes to come join the fun - we wouldn't want this murder to take off without you! "Murder and mayhem visits this holiday train.swing time will never be the same."
  • Cirque De Foul Play ('50s)
  • Remember "The Big Top," "Trapeze" or "Circus Boy?" Come join us as we travel back to 1955 to visit the traveling characters of the Royale Circus. They have just finished up their tour and are ready to break down for the season when the owner, Duke Royale, receives a call from the bank - ready to call in their note - what can Duke possibly do to stall them, once again? Meet Tom Foolery, the circus "Side Show Barker" who secretly lusts after everything Duke Royale stands for - The Royale Circus - what card lies up his sleeve he has yet to play. Or the poor Princess Sharif, the exotic dancer who only wants one thing to not fulfill her marital contract to a man she has never met. In hiding, someone has just found out where she is. And then there's "Shakes the Clown." He has only one dream and will not rest until it comes true - to be as famous as Bozo. These characters will collide together with a lot more mixed in for fun for an evening of entertainment and mystery - all done up 50's style - with music and costumes to set the mood. Intrigue has just made a stop at the "Big Top" to remind us just how perilous walking a tightrope to danger can actually be. "When your life is a circus, be the ring master."

  • The Love Train ('70s)
  • Our gang sets the mood for a '70s style spoof of the popular "Love Boat" characters on their Aloha Voyage aboard the Love Train. Meet Julie, our activities director; she's just too good to be true. There's Scooter, the Captain's go-fer, who will do just about anything for his mentor, maybe even murder! What would the Captain do to keep from losing his train? And what's with Doc, so busy with the lonely ladies that he hardly has time to treat those who really need him? Louise Lamore, famous columnist for the lovelorn; knows somebody's up to no good but is she in it for the news or the notoriety? And there's the CEO's spoiled son, Raymond Ditwilder; he runs his father's casino but what is he doing here? These characters collide for an evening of intrigue and entertainment, done up in `70s style, to set the mood and costumes to remind us just how fun it was to be dancing-or dying-to the Disco Beat!
