Announcing Auditions for
Pump Boys and Dinettes
Director/Music Director: Lannie Hilboldt
Choreographer: Jesee Smart
Stage Manager: Maria Kruger
The ‘Pump Boys’ sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and 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 on guitars, piano, bass and, yes, kitchen utensils.
**Important Note** While it would be nice if you were to play an instrument, it is not expected.
Auditions will begin with Dance Auditions on Saturday, November 17th from 2:00-4:30 pm. Sneakers or jazz shoes are fine Everyone in the show must move, so we will need to see everyone at the dance audition.
