Get ready for a rousing blend of down-home country, rock and blues in Pump Boys and Dinettes, a charming musical tale of friendship, romance and life's simple pleasures. At the Double Cupp Diner and neighboring gas station alongside North Carolina's Highway 57, pump boys sell high-octane fuel as sassy sisters Prudie and Rhetta Cupp wait tables next door. Between changing tires and baking pies, the rowdy filling station boys and the "dinettes" get together for songs and other shenanigans. Playing instruments ranging from guitars to the kitchen utensils themselves, they'll belt out such show tune staples as "Farmer Tan" and "The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine." Pump Boys and Dinettes' original Broadway production opened in 1982, ran for 573 performances and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical. Learn More

This sparkling romantic music and dance extravaganza follows the jazzy whirl of New York high society in the Roaring ’20s. Popular but penniless Susy and her friend Nick devise a get-rich-quick scheme to marry and live off their wedding presents while they help one another look for suitable millionaires. The plan works perfectly… until they fall in love. Based on Edith Wharton’s 1922 novel, this delightful Jazz Age romp asks the age-old question: marry for love… or for the love of money?
