One of the main features during the Amusement Park days was the Stunt Show, mostly performed on the Silvertown street. Cast pictures from several different years can be found on the WORKERS page from the Home Page.

According to William Ehrheart, a historian on Corriganville, Elaine DuPont stated that there were forty scripted stunt shows.

So far, the following are the names of the shows which I have gathered from different sources, including Corriganville advertisements and the stunt people who worked the shows.
