SCT: 'Bus Stop'
SCT Playhouse welcomes audiences to the heartwarming comedy, “Bus Stop.” In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a small roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and the weary travelers on board have to take refuge in the diner until morning. A nightclub singer, “a young cowboy with all the romantic finesse of a rodeo bull,” a middle-age scholar, a young waitress, the cafe owner, and the bus driver spend a very entertaining evening together. “Bus Stop” is a theater classic that is sure to please audiences.

Bo (Ethan Johnson) hoots and hollers his support for his dancing love Cherie (Abbie Hinrichsen) as she takes to the countertop at Grace’s Diner to entertain while Virgil (Colin Van Westen) accompanies with his guitar.
