TCMS Presents “Murder on the 518”

Twelve Corners Middle School is presenting “Murder on the 518” at 7 p.m. Friday, June 14 in the Brighton High School auditorium. Tickets are $5 at the door only (cash or check).

Red-eye travelers on the westbound 518 are in for a surprise when first one passenger, and then another, mysteriously drop dead right before their eyes — and just as the train is halted by a rockslide in an isolated canyon. Because the pair appears to have been poisoned, anyone and everyone in the train dining car is a suspect! Unable to call for help, the eccentric passengers — including two newlyweds, an astronomy professor, a sports recruiter, a CEO, a movie star, an aspiring musician, and others — try to work together with the waitstaff to find the murderer before they reach their destination and the killer escapes for good! Unfortunately, not everything (or everyone) is as it seems. This family-friendly mystery is sure to keep the audience guessing right up until the train pulls into the station. Hold on tight — “Murder on the 518” is quite the ride!”
