Subscribe now to the FST’s Summer Mainstage season and see three shows for as little as $39.  

The pump boys sell high octane fuel on North Carolina’s Highway 57 and the sassy dinettes run the Double Cupp diner next door. Between changing tires and baking pies, the gang performs a rousing, down-home mix of country western, rock ‘n’ roll and blues in this charming tale of friendship, romance and life’s simple pleasures.

Following the Pump Boys and Dinettes is Becoming Dr. Ruth playing in the Keating Theatre June 25 through July 27. The final show will be Taking Shakespeareplaying in the Gompertz July 23 through August 17. This is a summer season filled with great stories, great music, and great moments.
