Pump Boys & Dinettes
Fundraiser - January 26 & 27 @ 7:30pm
On January 26 & 27, our friends at Durham Church are hosting a fundraiser with the goal of raising $65,500 for the Live Into Hope Fund. Twenty years ago a group of friends at UNC-Chapel Hill put on a production of Pump Boys and Dinettes. Several years later they got together to produce the first New York City production of Pump Boys since the original Broadway run. This January they are coming together again for two special fundraising performances. 100% of proceeds will go to the Live Into Hope Fund.
A musical with deep North Carolina roots, the show features the "pump boys," who sell high octane on Highway 57, somewhere between Frog Level and Smyrna, NC. Their friends the "dinettes" 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! The performances will be Friday and Saturday, January 26 and 27, at the Hayti Heritage Center in Durham, NC.
Tickets are free so we are counting on donations to reach our fundraising goal of $65,500. The performances will be at the historic Hayti Heritage Center. It's an intimate space so all seats are close to the stage. Donations of $500 or more will have reserved seats.
