STAGE TUBE: Meet Sierra Rep's PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES

The Double Cupp Diner sits on the side of the road "somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, NC." But from June 13 to July 27 the diner - the setting of Pump Boys and Dinettes - will relocate to East Sonora as Sierra Repertory Theatre stages another rendition of this popular musical. Watch the video below to meet the cast!

It's the fourth time Sierra Rep has done this down-home show, and director Brian Swasey (who directed last summer's RESPECT: A Musical Journey Of Women) promises to deliver everything Pump Boys is known for: memorable characters, toe-tapping music and fun.

Pump Boys is the ultimate musical tribute to life on the roadside. There's a gas station, where Jim, Jackson, L.M. and Eddie occasionally do auto repairs, fueled by beer and music. There's the diner next door, run by the Cupp sisters, sassy Rhetta and sweet-tempered Prudie. There are six performers, each of whom sings, dances and plays an instrument - guitar, bass, piano, even wooden spoons. The show features a variety of musical styles, including country, rock and folk. Swasey's favorite songs? "Highway 57," named for the road the diner is on, and the hilarious "Be Good Or Be Gone."
