Help us  find, choose, purchase & restore a vintage bus... THE BAH HUMBUS!

Artistic Director of The Company Theatre, J. Damian Gillen, (that's me) has been touring Texas, delighting audiences with my one-man adaptations of classic works: Mark Twain, The Groucho Show, The History of Texas...in one darn easy lesson!, The Parable Man and  many more, for over 23 years!

Most notably my favorite of these classics is "Bah Humbug! A one-man Christmas Carol" -  a magical re-telling of Charles Dickens classic tale of hope & redemption (A Christmas Carol), playing ALL the roles from Scrooge to Tiny Tim!  It has  been touring Texas during the holiday season, to theaters, opera houses, Churches, schools, prison ministries, fun backyard Christmas Parties and my own dinner theater business (based in San Antonio, TX) for over 16 years...each year try to break our record with more than 30 shows in  30 days!

Given the diverse uniqueness of these productions, I am hoping...wishing for a "New" Touring Van befitting this distinct style of show and have decided upon the purchase & restoration of a old vintage school bus (or possibly an old VW Camper/Van, if the right one can be found), that will become a part-time tour bus, tiny-house-on-wheels and part-time travelling Charles Dickens museum!  We will affectionately dub thee: THE BAH HUMBUS!   And I need your help!  The Bah Humbus will bring awareness to the theatrical arts, as it cruises down Texas Highways, entertaining thousands, as they travel all over the lone Star State...and beyond!

This has been a life-long dream of mine to hit the road FULL-TIME, in a unique vehicle in keeping with my weirdness...and to entertain &  educate, while bringing miles of smiles along the way!

Thank you for your donation (Please comment if you prefer a Bus or a VW!) 

And may God bless you...May God bless us...EVERYONE!
