Announcing the cast of Bus Stop

Directors Steve Martin and Neil Radtke have announced the cast of Bus Stop, the third production of the 2013-2014 MainStage season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. William Inge wrote the script.

This production of Bus Stop is sponsored by W. H. Long.

The cast includes:

* Elma Duckworth - Keanna Patterson
* Grace Hoylard - Stephanie Bosma
* Will Masters - Andrew Meyer
* Cherie - Teora Schumacher
* Carl - Ted Malone
* Dr. Gerald Lyman - Steve Becker
* Bo Decker - Aaron Newton
* Virgil Blessing - Allen Banning

In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and four or five weary travelers are going to have to hole up until morning. Cherie, a nightclub chanteuse, is the passenger with the most to worry about. She’s been pursued and kidnapped by a twenty-one-year-old cowboy with a ranch and romantic methods of a headstrong bull. Other stories abound in this classic "slice of life" play that is a romantic and funny portrayal of Midwestern life, mid-twentieth century.

Bus Stop will be performed Friday, January 17 through Saturday, February 1 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street - the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday shows begin at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for youth age 18 and under. Tickets can be purchased by calling 765-423-7529 or visiting

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
