Actors' Summit, Akron's professional theater, announces the production of "Bus Stop" by William Inge.

The show will have a preview performance Feb. 20, with the official opening on Feb. 21. A free dessert reception follows the opening night performance. "Bus Stop" will have a 12-performance run, closing on March 9.

In a corner diner in a nameless town 25 miles west of Kansas City, Missouri, the occupants of a cross country bus have been stranded. A blizzard has made the road impassible and the passengers, as well as the locals in the diner are trapped until the road is cleared.

One of the occupants of the bus has been kidnapped by a young cowboy. He fell in love with her at a Kansas City dance hall and is determined to carry her back to his Montana ranch. The local sheriff steps in to protect her.

Ric Goodwin will direct.
