Auditions for Pump Boys and Dinettes

Auditions will be held Sunday, July 31 at 3 pm and Monday, Aug. 1 at 7 pm for Tryon Little Theater's production of "Pump Boys and Dinettes." The auditions will be held at TLT's Workshop, 516 S. Trade St. in Tryon.

"Pump Boys and Dinettes" will be directed by Carol Cox. Performances will be held at the Tryon Fine Arts Center Sept. 22-25, 2022 (one weekend only).

The musical revolves around four men (L.M., Jackson, Jim, and Eddie) who work at a gas station, and two waitresses (sisters Prudie and Rhetta Cupp) who work next door at the Double Cupp Diner, located on Highway 57, somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, North Carolina. The play is set in the 50s, and there’s a whole lot of sangin’ and playin’ music from country western, to pop, to blues.

Director Carol Cox is looking for 10-15 people for the show. “They must be lively, energetic singers, and although playing an instrument is a bonus, it is not required,” she says. “There’s some dancing involved, but more movement than actual dance steps, so I don’t want people to be put off if they think they can’t dance!”

Pam McNeil is the musical director and requests that each person be prepared to sing 16 measures of a lively song, and please bring your own music!
