Pounding hoofs!  Clouds of dust!  It’s the Pony Express!  The Widow Mentary and her daughter, Ella, operate the relay station in Carson City, Nevada.  Ella loves stalwart cowpoke, Ned Sterling.  He wants to ride for the Pony Express, even if he must risk death and diet.  Alas, things take a mysterious turn when a stagecoach rumbles into town. Join us for this high-stakes romp with pre-show live music, variety acts, and BBQ dinner theatre!

This production group culminates into a fully-staged event in Spring 2023.
