What Happens         on the Bus

Doesn't necessarily STAY

on the bus!


About the Busses & Bus Drivers

They were charter busses that came with drivers

Previous and casts that followed ours chartered the same bus and drivers for a semester but for Cast B 80-81, it was a different set of busses and drivers that got us between most towns.

    Education/Activity Bus

    Seemed silly since we learned new stuff on both busses!

    While not a formal division of bus functions, one bus was loosely designated the sleeping bus and the other the education or activity bus.

      Off Stage

      No matter how you looked at it or which bus you chose

      We weren't performing and we were out of sight of our host families, our sponsors and for the most part, completely unsupervised!

      Longest Bus Ride: Rittman, Ohio and Ogdensburg, NY (596 miles) 

        Where we REALLY got to know each other

        We traveled nearly 12,000 miles on a bus

        There were two bathrooms for 90+ passengers, but those bathrooms (I understand) saw LOTS OF ACTION! In Europe, the busses had ZERO bathrooms!
