DON’T MISS THE TRAIN! Leaving the station October 12, 13, 20 and 21, 2018
Directed by Lynn Wilde Concannon
In the late 1920’s, close to a million orphans roamed the dirty streets of New York City. A very fortunate few were placed on Orphan Trains and sent west, looking for loving homes. As the final Orphan Train departs the City, a last-minute orphan is added to the cargo – a mysterious little boy with no past. The boy is guided and guarded by a “friend” only he can see. Worlds of faith and evil, love and greed collide as the train makes its way to Kansas.
Unique to this show, the cast will remain on stage throughout most of the play as they create the sound effects of the show, i/e/; train sounds, whistles, wind, music, etc.
