Easy Street Productions continued its 25th anniversary celebration Saturday.

A classic car show and block party on Symphony Place downtown was part of the celebration.

WBBG Oldies 106.1 was also part of the fun as they are also celebrating their 25th anniversary.

The reunion continued on stage at the DeYor Performing Arts Center where founding members of Easy Street Productions have revived the longest-running musical in Youngstown’s history, “Pump Boys and Dinettes.”

“We originally started at the Uptown Theater down on Market Street and the show took off,” said Easy Street Productions co-founder Todd Hancock. “It ran for two years, 200 performances, so we built up a big following. So, when we got to our 25th anniversary, we said we gotta bring the original cast back together, so we did.”

Saturday night’s show started at 10:30 p.m. to lure in the downtown crowd. The final show this weekend is 7 p.m. Sunday, but it will continue at 8 p.m. May 1o and 11, and at 2:30 p.m. May 11 and 12.

For tickets, call Easy Street Productions at 330-743-8555.
