Skeleton Key Pictures Partners with Los Angeles Youth Network for the Los Angeles Run of Bus Stops

Working Together to End Youth Homelessness in Los Angeles County
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Feb. 6, 2014 - PRLog -- The creators of Bus Stops is proud to announce their partnership with Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN) to help raise awareness and funds to combat the epidemic of homeless teens on the streets of Los Angeles and surrounding communities. “With over 4,000 youth on the streets of Los Angeles on any given night, youth homelessness is an issue which should not be taken lightly. We’re pleased to partner with Skeleton Key Pictures in an effort to reduce those numbers and keep our youth safe and on a path to self-sufficiency,” notes Mark Supper, Executive Director of LAYN.

BUS STOPS, an original play written by award-winning playwright Jaimyon Parker, is a surprising and touching piece that follows similar events at two different bus stops to their inevitable conclusions. The characters and situations are comically explosive at times, then poignantly emotional at others. The story forces the audience to deal with experiences including teenage homelessness & prostitution, love, life, and fear.

Skeleton Key Pictures’ Jaimyon Parker knows the importance of helping the homeless teens find a way to get off the streets and learn valuable life skills. To help make this happen, a percentage of total ticket sales Bus Stops will be donated to LAYN.

The play boasts the talents of Leonard Thomas and Greg DePetro in the lead roles, with a strong supporting cast including Malika Blessing, Christianna Carmine, Natalie Kabenjian, Andy Ottenweller, Brittany Mayti, and Jaimyon Parker himself who is fresh off his critically acclaimed performance in John DiFusco’s hit revival of TRACERS.

The award-winning crew includes Lighting Design - Sammie Wayne (coming off of his award-winning design for CAMP LOGAN), Set Design - Mark V. Jones, Costumer - Peggy Taylor, and Stage Manager - LaShada Jackson.

BUS STOPS runs Thursday through Sunday, February 28th to March 9th, at The Complex “Flight” Theater, located at 6476 Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood, CA, 90038. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night performances begin at 8pm while the Sunday matinees start at 4pm.
