In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and all travelers are going to have to hole up until morning.

Cherie, a nightclub singer in a sparkling gown is the passenger with the most to worry about. She’s been pursued during this storm by a belligerent cowboy.

As a counterpoint to the main romance, the proprietor of the cafe and the bus driver find time to develop a friendship of their own; a middle-aged scholar comes to terms with himself; and a young girl who works in the cafe also gets her first taste of romance.

Tickets available at palt.org. Reservations can be made by calling 409-727-PALT.

Prices for general adult are $13; for those 62 and older, teachers and active duty they are $11; and students (through college) are $9.
