SYNOPSIS

All of the action takes place on the platform of a main-line railway station, as we follow the staff and passengers as they go about their daily activities. 

There is only enough dialogue to carry the simple story-line centred around the 'Waiting Girl' 

This musical requires a high degree of singing & dancing for everyone involved in the production.
