Date/Time

February 04, 2023 to February 04, 2023
04:00 PM until 05:30 PM

Description

The show, presented in partnership with the Oklahoma Railway Museum, features comedy, suspense, and an original melodrama—all themed around trains.

The Great Train Robbery is a suspenseful episode in which Walter, an ordinary factory worker, decides to change his life’s fortune by robbing a train. In addition, the variety-style performance includes a comedy skit called The Electric Train, in which the Ozzie and Harriet family experience growing pains as the children outgrow their electric train set, but Dad isn’t ready to let it go. And no train show is complete without a screaming heroine tied to the train tracks, in an original Edmond-themed drama by Barrett Huddleston.
