Inidicate in subject line: PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES / NY APPT / AEA SUBMISSION
Drive a ways outta town, somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina and you’ll come to a filling station run by L. M. and Jim. Across the blacktop is the Double Cupp Diner, operated by Rhetta and Prudie Cupp. To look at it, you wouldn’t know that this little stop on Highway 57 is where all the action is, but trust us – once the boys get that guitar and bass fiddle revved up, you won’t want to be anywhere else. Pump Boys and Dinettes is a countrified musical packed with highly entertaining toe-tappers such as Drinkin’ Shoes, Farmer Tan and The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine!
All Characters express genuine southern charm.
Note – seeking performers who are excellent singers and excellent musicians (on the instruments noted above.). The guys must be able to accompany themselves on songs as well as back-up others. The ladies must be able to play “found” percussion, like spoons. The cast will function as its own band.
