Bus Stop Opens Feb. 24 at LSC-Tomball

Bus Stop coming to LSC-TOmballThe Lone Star College-Tomball Theater Department will present the hit play "Bus Stop” Feb. 24-26 at 7:30 p.m. in the Black Box Theater, located next to the Beckendorf Conference Center.

The 1955 classic by William Inge, “Bus Stop” tells the poignant story of eight characters, six of whom are weary travelers, who must hole up in a roadside diner outside of Kansas City during a snowstorm. Well guised as a three-act romantic comedy, the drama shows what can happen in one night to a group of characters with little in common except loneliness.

After the campus production, the cast and crew will perform “Bus Stop” in the 2010-11 Texas Community College Speech & Theater Association State Play Festival at Texas A&M University-Commerce March 2-5.

Tickets for “Bus Stop” are $10 for the general public and $8 for students, senior citizens and Lone Star College System employees. To purchase tickets, call 281-357-3654 or e-mail Sherri.R.White@LoneStar.edu.

LSC-Tomball is located at 30555 Tomball Parkway, at the intersection of State Highway 249 and Zion Road.
