May 13 - 22 & June 2 - 12, 2021

Previews: May 12 at 7:30PM & May 13 at 2:00PM

Broadway Hit! The 'Pump Boys' sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Old Opry country. The 'Dinettes', Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, run the Double Cupp diner next door.  Together they fashion an evening of country western songs that received unanimous raves on and off-Broadway.  With heartbreak and hilarity, they perform highly entertaining toe-tappers such as "Drinkin' Shoes," "Farmer Tan" and "The Night Dolly Parton Was Almost Mine!" on guitars, piano, bass and yes, kitchen utensils.
