The musical is a country-rock/ pop musical based on the performance group "Pump Boys and Dinettes." The members of the group wrote the musical. The group also stared in and directed the Broadway production.
The story revolves around small town characters in North Carolina. On Hwy 57, a gas station sits across from a diner. The four gas station attendants are called pump boys. The boys can sing and play instruments along with car service. Across the blacktop is a diner where two waitresses work. The girls are called dinettes. Together, the pump boys and dinettes provide the audience with song, dance and comedy. The performers interact with the audience giving the musical a concert style performance.
The music is more blues, rock and western with fewer country songs. The pump boys play their instruments while the dinettes sing.
Michelle McCrea and Carol McConnell are playing the dinettes, Prudie and Rhetta Cupp.
The pump boys in this musical are performed by Kevin McCrea as the manager Jim; Dave Archer is Jackson; Dave Lloyd as Eddie; John Hook as the drummer; and Lee Reberger as L.M. Carl McKinney and his crew designed the set.
