ghosts & gold
Also known as "Villainous Loco-Motives"
Visiting the small town of San Juan Capistrano (or your town if you want to customize this Melodrama) on the train. This musical melodrama fondly retells the story of lost loves, lost youth, found love, and so much more. This is a shortened version of the Melodrama entitled "Professor Mack's Last Train".
With a trick shot expert on the train to who know where … anything can happen. Meet Sharpshooter Cantankerous Kate a talented singer and working in her own Wild West show after years of performing in the circus. Montana Ana her apprentice, and the supposedly "rehabilitated" villain Professor Mack who is now running The Mack Brother's Travelling Wild West Show in Paris France.
We promise an ample supply of twists and turns, schemers and dreamers, misdirection and mystery, frivolity, authentic old-time melodramatic music, and a last-minute plot-twist gunfight on a train that will change everything. Last minute is all we have since this is a Mini-Meloframa with a run time of under 15 minutes.
