Tickets for ‘The Montana Rep Presents: Bus Stop’ at Northwest on sale Monday

By Nichole Beckman, media relations assistant

MARYVILLE, Mo. - Tickets for a beloved American classic "The Montana Rep Presents: Bus Stop," the next offering of Northwest Missouri State University's Encore series, are available to the public Feb. 7. The performance is 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 8.

Orchestra tickets cost $25, and balcony tickets are $23. Children's tickets are $15 and $13. Northwest employees may purchase discounted orchestra tickets for $23. Admission is free for Northwest students with a Bearcat Card. Tickets may be purchased at the Student Services Center on the first floor of the Administration Building, by calling 660.562.1212 or online at http://www.nwmissouri.edu/campusactivities/tickets.htm.

Written by Pulitzer Prize-winner author William Inge, "Bus Stop" was an immediate commercial and critical success when it opened on Broadway. The play offers a story line that prompts laughter, tears and a yearning for something more. A 1956 film based on the play starred Marilyn Monroe. 

The story centers on a roadside diner after a busload of stranded passengers wait out a snowstorm. The nightclub chanteuse, Cherie, and Bo, the belligerent cowboy, are only two of the characters who prove to the audience that a lot can happen in a single night.

Director of Campus Activities Angel McAdams Prescott said the performance is the "complete arts package" for Northwest's Encore series. McAdams-Prescott also noted the play's Midwest connection, saying, "This performance showcases a story that many people can relate back to their own hometown experiences."
