Food Is Hot & Music Hotter At ‘Pump Boys and Dinettes’

By  | 


The diner is hot and the music is even hotter as Lamb’s Players Theatre brings back its popular rockabilly musical revue, Pump Boys and Dinettes, opening Jan. 28 at the Horton Grand Theatre.

Drive a ways outta town, and you’ll come to a filling station run by Jim and L.M. 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.

Packed with hummable, hilarious songs like “Be Good or Be Gone,” “Tips,” and “The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine,” it’s a foot-stomping good time that will make you want to order a big slice of cherry pie and a second cup of coffee, before you hit the road in search of life’s simple pleasures.

Created by John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk, Cass Morgan, John Schimmel and Jim Wann, this is the Lamb’s Players third time with the popular production, having produced it twice before, in 1994 and in 2005. Directed by Deborah Gilmour Smyth, the cast for 2010 includes Season Duffy, Jim Mooney, Leonard Patton, Oliver Shirley, Nick Spear, and Marci Anne Wuebben.
