The Christmas Bus

It’s Christmas Eve Day, and Miz Frump, the frazzled, warm-hearted director of the Peaceful Valley Orphanage, is setting off in a rickety old school bus to give her kids some magic – Christmas with families she has recruited across the county. The problem is, she hasn’t asked permission from the Busybodies who run the orphanage board of trustees. A simple bus ride becomes a harum-scarum adventure as Frump and her orphans are pursued by the Busybodies and the suspicious Sheriff Snodgrass. Along the way, they pick up a traveling folksinger who’s on the way home to see his girlfriend, who may not be very happy to see him. “The Christmas Bus” is a holiday story of love, laughter, serendipity, and family.

Cast: 3 males, 5 females, 9 children (expandable). One int./one ext. set. Approximate running time: 65 minutes. Premier: December, 2003 at Blowing Rock Stage Company, Blowing Rock, NC.
