Ghostwriters&GhostRidersART

by Jim Christian
Synopsis: This play originated as a special charter of the Heber Valley Historic Railroad that runs up Provo Canyon to Heber City, in Utah, telling the tales of many ghosts and other hauntings along its legendary rails. It can work on any type of train trip anywhere across the country. It can also work in a theatre or a small or large room. The assemblage of characters ranges from locals to Hollywood figures to dabblers in the supernatural … leading to a chaotic conflict of interests … and death by fright! Or is it?
