The Christmas Bus (musical)
The Christmas Bus (musical)
Big-hearted Yuletide spirit. —Creative Loafing Charlotte

Christmas Bus arrives in style…a welcome addition to the stageworn Christmas repertoire. —The Charlotte Observer
Musical. Book, music and lyrics by Robert Inman.

Cast: 4m., 5w., 8 children. (Children's cast can be expanded with nonspeaking parts.) It's Christmas Eve, and Mrs. Frump, the director of the Peaceful Valley Orphanage, is planning what she believes will be the most special Christmas ever for her kids. She's borrowed an old bus and arranged for each child to spend Christmas with a family in the area. The only problem is, she hasn't told the Busybodies on the orphanage board of trustees, who believe Frump has gotten too old and soft to handle the rowdy kids at Peaceful Valley. With the help of teenage Thomas, the oldest of the orphans and her trusty right-hand man, Frump sets off to deliver the kids—pursued by the suspicious Sheriff Snodgrass and the Busybodies. Along the way, they pick up a passenger: a traveling troubadour who's been on the road trying his luck as a folksinger and is now returning home to his girlfriend (who may or may not be glad to see him). It's an adventuresome ride, culminating in a Christmas even more special than Frump could have ever imagined. Enjoy this wonderful Christmas ride with 15 original songs. One int./one ext. set. Optional accompaniment CD available. Approximate running time: 90 minutes.

An optional accompaniment CD is available for use with this show. See Rental Info for details.
