Pump Boys and Dinettes
Drive a ways outta town, somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina, and you’ll come to the place where the “Pump Boys” sell high octane and the “Dinettes” run the Double Cupp diner next door. 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.” The musical was nominated for a Tony and four Drama Desk awards. Jim Wann, principal author and composer, grew up in Chattanooga. For full schedule of performances please visit theatrecentre.com.
