Glen Arbor Players audition call for “Bus Stop”

From staff reports

The Glen Arbor Players Reader’s Theater troupe has scheduled auditions for the award-winning play “Bus Stop” by William Inge. The auditions will be held on Monday, May 6, at the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church and Tuesday, May 7, at the Old Town Playhouse in Traverse City, both at 7 pm.

The play has roles for five men and three women and will be directed by troupe founder, Harriett Mittelberger. “Bus Stop” was first performed on Broadway in 1955 then made into a movie in 1956 starring Marilyn Monroe and Don Murray. It was then adapted into a 26 episode TV series on ABC from 1961-1962.

The play is a dramatic comedy about a group of people stranded at a bus stop in the middle of a blizzard in rural Kansas. The ensemble of people on the bus and locals are forced together and make attempts to entertain each other through the night. The result is three diverse stories of the varities of love.

The play will be performed at the Glen Lake Community Reformed Church from June 6-8.

Due to an error in the press release from Glen Arbor Players, this story originally reported the dates when “Bus Stop” will be performed as June 9-11. We regret the error.
