February 23 – May 1, 2015

Talented playwright, Dwayne Blackaller, who wrote ITY touring shows, The Science of Fiction and Air Heart, teams up with Tracy Sunderland, a longtime friend and actress with Idaho Shakespeare Festival, to create a new masterpiece, Maggie Lumière and the Ghost Train.

Maggie loves making movies. She has always seen what others miss; the intricacies of Charlie Chaplin’s walk or the way shadow gives way to light. She’s also deaf, but this has never stopped her. Determined to make a silent film masterpiece, Maggie, and her intrepid posse of movie-making pals, stumble upon a derelict train yard that seems like an ideal movie set. But their shoot is disrupted when they stumble upon a mysterious railroad car that contains a dangerous secret.
