You are cordially invited to toast the joyful union of “Lucky” James Dandy, silver  tycoon to the famous Italian opera star, Elenora Serenelli, at the Golden Railway Station, in the year 1880. Before they ride off into the sunset in their private railway car, a crowd gathers to celebrate! But marital bliss may have a tiny hiccup when dangerous liaisons, thievery and murder are afoot!

Come be a part of this live action thriller, "MURDER AT THE RAILROAD." This is a Wild West “Who Dun It,” taking place outside (rain or shine) at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado. 

Unlike traditional theatrical performances, you will have the choice of deciding which characters to "follow" and scenes to observe, so your experience can be different from someone else's at the same show! We highly recommend dressing in the time period of the wild west, or fantasy Steam Punk & West World! (Sorry - no weapons are allowed at this event - it is a wedding after all!!) Not sure what to wear? Look HERE.

 You can also opt to participate in the performance in a cameo role (VIP Package which is described below).

Every ticket holder gets two drink tokens. 


General Admission Ticket: This will give you admission into the performance plus 2 drink tokens. 

VIP PACKAGEEnhance your Murder Mystery experience! This optional package allows you to get yourself or a member of your party involved in the show with a cameo role without their advance knowledge. It's perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, you name it! You will receive a separate email with details and instructions for your VIP Package after purchase.
