Casting "Pump Boys and Dinettes." All roles have been previously cast with performers in previous productions. Seeking possible replacements only.
The musical tells the story of four men who work at a gas station on Highway 57 in North Carolina, and the two sisters who are waitresses at the Double Cupp Diner next door. It is performed in a comfortable yet musically precise style that emphasizes virtuosity, range, and character. The four Pump Boys play instruments to a high professional level throughout, and the Cupp Sisters join in on percussion plus other instruments as able. All musicians should be able to improvise very well in a country/blues style. Actors who can play multiple instruments are highly desirable. Possible instruments include: Guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, ukelele, accordion, various percussion (tamb, shakers, also found objects/props onstage), and cello.
