Sizzling Summer Tickets
PUMP BOYS AND DINETTES
by John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk,
Patty and Wayne Higgins and Steak and Shake of Weaverville.
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.
“Both musically and theatrically, a triumph of ensemble playing. It doesn’t merely
celebrate the value of friendship and life’s simple pleasures, it embodies them.” — The New York Times
Friday & Saturday Nights & Sunday matinees
July 10 – 19 at North Buncombe High School
July 24 – August 2 at Owen High School, Black Mountain
AS TIME GOES BY
Ever since Al Jolson burst into song in The Jazz Singer (1927), Hollywood has been creating some of the most memorable songs that we all love. "Moon River," "Over the Rainbow," "Mona Lisa," and "The Way We Were" are just a few of the amazing songs that won an Academy Award and the list goes on. You will want to join SART favorites Beverly Todd, Liz Aiello, Bradshaw Call, Lyn Nihart and Kelly Christianson as they roll through the years singing some of the greatest songs ever written, including a medley of some of the best of Disney! This will be an evening of first-class entertainment!

Wednesday, Thursday & Sunday Nights
In the twenties, when radio ruled the airwaves and small stations thrived,
music teacher Hazel C. Hunt received a transmitter as a retirement gift and
station WGAL was born in Cedar Rapids, Arkansas. A wacky quintet of singer/musicians gather daily in her parlor to set hearts thumping and toes tapping
with rib tickling songs, homey chat and plugs for a rejuvenating tonic that owes its kick to the still out back. Hazel’s habit of wave jumping to find a clear
channel brings a government inspector to shut her down. She discovers the
stage struck tenor beneath his bureaucratic facade and he is quickly
ensnared in musical and romantic shenanigans.
“Keeps the music, country humor, conflict and romance coming fast enough to charm the ear and occupy the eye.” — The New York Times
