It is a cold and stormy night in a rural restaurant which serves as a country bus stop, when out of the blizzard comes a bizarre cast of characters.  A couple of cowboys fresh from a rodeo triumph, a boozy professor, a nightclub singer of questionable innocence, the local sheriff and denizens of the restaurant round out a comedy drama of ordinary people coping with dreams and reality .  The play is a story of  loneliness and love, of wishes yet to be fulfilled, and of hopes of a happy ending.

Auditions for the Court House Plyers first 2018 production will be Sunday, January 7, at Ware Parish House from 2:00 til 4:00.    We need four men of indeterminate age; the sheriff, the bus driver, the professor, a retired cowboy; and a wild cowboy in his early twenties. There are three women’s parts; an older lady who is the restaurant owner, the nightclub singer in her early twenties, and a teenage girl still in high school.  All parts are equal size – there are no walk-ons..  Rehearsals are Monday, Wednesday, Friday.  No weekends til the end.
