Once every thousand years or so, for one night, the hieroglyphics of Ancient Egypt come to life and get to experience the joys, rage, and sorrow of what it means to be alive. The Durand Marching Railroaders 2019 show will take you on an emotional ride with "The Writing's On The Wall," featuring music from the movie "The Wind and the Lion", and also the song "Writing's on the Wall" by Sam Smith.
