Photo Flash: First Look at PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES at Manatee Players
This charming six person slice of down-home life conceived and written by John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk, Cass Morgan John Schimmel and Jim Wann features an ensemble cast that includes RODD DYER, ADAM BAKER, WILLIAM HELLEM-BRUSSO, NICK SPAGNUOLO, TARA CALLANDRA and DAWN DOUGHERTY.
The show is being directed by Preston Boyd with Rodd Dyer as musical director.
The Pump Boys sell high octane on Highway 57 and the Dinettes, Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they perform a rousing, down-home mix of country western, rock ‘n’ roll, and blues in this charming tale of friendship, romance, and heartbreak. Packed with hummable, hilarious songs like “Be Good or Be Gone,” “Tips,” and “The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine,” Pump Boys and Dinettes is a foot-stomping good time.
