13 Jan 5 Reasons to get to the Bus Stop in January!
Between now and January 30th the Bus Stop is alive with great events!
1. 30/60 | Up the Hill Theatre | Opens tonight!
From the team that brought you last year’s sell-out production of “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind” comes another theatrical race-against-the-clock! Their madcap performers will act as hard and as fast as they can, all in effort to perform 30 original plays in 60 original minutes! Will they get through all 30? You’ll have to come see!
$11 + a roll of a 6-sided die at the door! More here
Episode 42: Friends in Need is filled to the brim with some odd characters and stranger debaters. They’ve cooked up a couple of great matches for you! Jay & Silent Bob versus Trailer Park Boys and Eric Cartman versus Dr. Sheldon Cooper. As always you can expect some great 2 minute debates and NOOBS get in FREE!
Tickets are $7 at the door. More here.

Now entering its second year, the StART Festival is a multidisciplinary festival of student art based out of the Bus Stop. Featuring two days of performances and art installations, with upwards of fifteen artists, the festival creates a hub of activity that allows emerging artists to connect with engaged audiences. Drawing students away from their respective campuses and into a community of peers working in different mediums, the StART Festival is a hotbed of creativity.
