CPP opens season with ‘Bus Stop’ on Oct. 7

Central Park Players will open its first full season since moving its performances to Lakeshore Middle School with the romantic serio-comedy, "Bus Stop' by William Inge, on Oct. 7. Some may recall the 1956 film - loosely based on the play - as a boisterous romantic comedy about a young, loudmouthed cowboy bent on lassoing a chanteuse played by Marilyn Monroe. Inge's "Bus Stop' revolves around a young nightclub singer and her cowboy-fiancée, Bo, and their struggle to find love in the modern world.

Set during a blizzard, the Central Park Players’ cast of eight must ride out Kansas’ worst snowstorm in years in Grace’s Diner until the highway can be cleared. The weather-enforced layover in the wee hours of the morning creates a window into the sometimes romantic, sometimes frosty relationships of the characters.

“Bus Stop” runs for five performances: at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 7-8; at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 9; and at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 16-17. All performances take place at the Lakeshore Middle School auditorium, 900 S. Cutler Ave. in Grand Haven.

Tickets will be available at the door and by calling the CPP box office at 850-6566.
