Pump Boys & Dinettes

NOMINEE! 1982 Tony Award for Best Musical
NOMINEE! 1982 Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Lyrics and Outstanding Music.
The ‘Pump Boys’ sell high octane on Highway 57 in Grand Ole Opry country and the ‘Dinettes’, Prudie and Rhetta Cupp, 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.

“Totally terrific…It is such fun.” – The New York Post

“A gasser, with buoyant, earthy humor.” – New York Daily News

“Totally delightful.” – Newsweek

“When the inevitable “closing time’ comes along, you’ll wish you could stay a while longer.” –Christian Science Monitor


Greenbrier Valley Theatre is a live-performance theatre and much more. GVT is involved in all aspects of the arts and humanities, with people of all ages.

From its 1966 productions in a tent alongside the Greenbrier River to Actor’s Equity affiliation in a state-of-the-art facility in downtown Lewisburg, the Greenbrier Valley Theatre has adhered to the founders’ concept: quality live theatre centered around a core of professional actors and directors with opportunities for members of the community to learn stagecraft.

Greenbrier Valley Theatre has enjoyed the support of a loyal community whose nurturing has developed a vigorous, professional organization with a vision to establish GVT as a significant regional performing theatre. In March 2006 GVT became West Virginia’s Official Year-Round Professional Theatre.
