The Christmas Bus: The Musical
Miz Frump, the bumbling but dedicated director of the Peaceful Valley Orphanage, wants her kids to experience an extra special Christmas with a real family – and no one will stop her! Not the law-abiding Sheriff Snodgrass, not the gossipy town Busybodies, not even a broken down old school bus that’s seen better days. Add a hitchhiking troubadour with a few dreams of his own, and you have a rollicking Christmas musical for the whole family. Fifteen original songs turn Miz Frump and her orphans into a singing, dancing busload of adventurers. Premier: December, 2006 at Children’s Theatre of Charlotte, Charlotte NC.
Cast: 3 males, 5 females, 8 children (expandable). 1 ext./1 int. set. Scored for five-piece musical ensemble. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
