PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

It is 1954 in a small Kansas diner, late at night in the middle of a raging snow storm, and Grace the diner’s owner and the young, naïve waitress who works for her are preparing for the late arrival of the Topeka-bound bus when the sheriff stops by to tell them the roads to Topeka are closed and the bus will be staying the night at the diner. When the bus arrives, the first passenger, Cherie, a fifth-rate chanteuse, bursts into the diner and tells them she is being taken to Montana by a head-strong young cowboy who has fallen in love with the nightclub singer and intends to marry he whether she likes it or not. Others on the bus who will be witness to the ensuing struggle include the cowboy’s trusted ranch hand, a former college professor with problems of his own and the bus driver, Carl, whom Grace has been hoping to spend a little time with to start up her own romance. During the time the bus is stranded at the diner, each character learns about love and its consequences through a series of funny and dramatic experiences.

This production of Bus Stop was fantastic. I'm truly amazed. no weak links here.

A combination of cast performance, lighting and a wonderful set (even the sounds made me believe I was in a 1950's bus stop) truly impressed me.

The Pumphouse Players continue to produce some well done community theater. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]

Last night my family and I went to see Bus Stop in Cartersville. It was our first time there and what a delight! The theatre is quaint, beautiful, and inviting. And the play was done so well! This is a great example of community theatre at its best. The set is amazing, you could even see snow blowing outside the door to the diner! The play took me through a series of emotions, as the characters showed their weaknesses and strengths. The actors do a great job. Carolyn Choe did a great job directing this play. I plan to go back with friends. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
