Pump Boys and Dinettes

Pump Boys and Dinettes


April 6 - May 4, 2014

book, lyrics and music by John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk, Cass Morgan, John Schimmel and Jim Wann

Y’all come down.

Somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina, way down on Highway 57, the ‘Pump Boys’ sell high octane and the ‘Dinettes’ serve up plenty of pie and sass at the Double Cupp diner next door. Together they fashion an evening of story and country songs that will have you stompin’ and yellin’ for more. With heartache and hilarity, they perform the stories of their lives on guitars, piano, bass and—believe it or not—kitchen utensils. With its Tarheel state roots, PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES is a love song to family, friends and fried chicken.

With additional support from Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP, Senn Dunn Insurance and Piedmont Natural Gas

Country Sass

Yes! WeeklyApril 13, 2014

Country music isn’t just about a sad story, or even about the acoustic guitars. It’s also about big hair, Southern twangs, sassy confidence and a whole lot of love—the great big, small-town kind of love. And that’s just what Triad Stage’s performance of Pump Boys and Dinettes delivered...


THROUGH 5/4: Triad Stage's Pump Boys and Dinettes

The only thing better than enjoying a homemade slice of pie while filling up your car's gas tank is being able to do both to the sounds of good music. Triad Stage's production of Pump Boys and Dinettes is a toe tapping, knee slapping, fish frying goodtime!
