Bus Stop in Denair
Placeholder Image

The Denair Gaslight Theater is raising the curtain on their production of “Bus Stop,” which will run through April 21.

“Bus Stop,” written by Wiiliam Inge, starts with a bus pulling up outside a roadside diner in Kansas as a snowstorm stops all traffic. Cherie, a nightclub singer, has the most to worry about. She's being pursued by "a young cowboy with all the romantic finesse of a rodeo bull." The belligerent cowhand is right behind her, ready to sling her over his shoulder and carry her, alive and kicking, all the way to Montana. As a counterpoint to the main romance, the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver who have previously only spent time in passing, find time to develop a friendship of their own; a middle-age scholar comes to terms with himself; and a young girl who works in the cafe also gets her first taste of romance.

Shows are set for 7 p.m. Saturday and April 20 and 21 and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $8 for seniors and will be available at the door. All shows will be at the theater at 3908 N. Gratton Road in Denair.
