Transcript T•H•E•A•T•E•R L•A•S•T stop LANA KHAWAJA The University of Houston School of Theatre's production of Bus Stop, a romantic comedy about bus travelers stranded in a diner, contained real-life romance as well. Director Carolyn Boone said that the play went surprisingly smoothly considering all the excitement that was going caused by lead actress Allison Keith. "Allison got married in the middle of the play and had to miss nine rehearsals," Boone said, "but the cast had such a great camaraderie that she was easily brought up to speed (when she returned)." Keith said, "When I picked my wedding day I had no idea that I would be in the middle of play rehearsals, but it couldn't have worked out more perfectly." The play was set in the 1950s in Grace's Diner, in a small town outside of Kansas City. The diner included all the essentials right down to a rotary telephone, an old-fashioned refrigerator and a few vinyl bar stools. "Sets and costumes are obtained any way we can get our hands on them," said Director of the School of Theatre Sidney Berger. "We hunt thrift stores, sew remnants of other costumes together and even use clothes from our own closets." Main characters included a chanteuse named Cherie portrayed by senior theater major Keith, and Bo Decker a naive rancher who falls in love with Cherie, played by sophomore theater major Curtis Billings. "I had a wonderful time working on the play," Keith said. "It was a great cast and we all got along really well." The 23-year-old aspiring actress began acting at the age of 10, and has performed in Theatre Under the Stars and at Fiesta Texas, not to mention numerous plays she has done at UH. Berger explained that he and the other associate directors meet at the beginning of each fall semester to decide which plays the school will produce that year. They take into consideration the age of the characters, set design and whether the play can be done. Normally, four plays arc produced during each academic year. "A play usually takes five weeks of rehearsal and five more weeks of preparation before it's ready for the public," Berger said. Rehearsal requires the cast to commit between 20 to 24 hours a week of their time, said "It was a great cast and we all got along really well" Allison Keith Keith. from 10 "We rehearsed Monday through Friday from 6 until 10 p.m. and sometimes on Saturday ) a.m. until 2 p.m.," Keith said. "But I love it." * Cherie (Allison Keith) telles Bo Decker (Curtis Billing) what she really thinks of him. Bus Stop was set in a Kansas City 1950 diner. Photo provided by the School of Theater.
