Event Details

"A Tuna Christmas" by Ed Howard, Joe Sears & Jaston Williams


Set in the made-up, tiny town of Tuna, Texas, this hilarious play satirizes small-town American life leaving little untouched.  The show is a sequel to the original, Greater Tuna, which started off as a comedy sketch by Sears and Williams at a party in 1981.  Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including the annual lawn-display contest and Joe Bob’s production of “A Christmas Carol,” jeopardized by unpaid electric bills.  Many colorful Tuna denizens join in, requiring 22 lightening-speed costume changes (half the fun).  “A Tuna Christmas” is a total delight, performed as it was on Broadway.
