PUMP BOYS & DINETTES
Directed by Jared Doren
Choreographed by Patti James
Music Direction by and Featuring Steve Goers
Weekends April 13 - 29, 2012
A piece down Highway 57 from Frog Level is a shabby gas station (with a hot tub out back), the Double Cupp Diner, and the best foot-stompin’ good time you’ve ever had at the theatre. Five rowdy filling station boys and sassy diner waitresses sing and play their own instruments in this hilarious and heartwarming country western music revue, with songs including “Farmer Tan” and “The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine.”
The New York Times wrote that PUMP BOYS is “as refreshing as an ice cold beer after a bowl of five-alarm chili.”
Jeff Thomas Catering serves up an opening weekend country-fried culinary experience, featuring classic roadside diner eats for purchase by-the-bite.
