The Comedy Greater Tuna To Play Valentine’s Studio A Weekends Jan.16 Thru Feb. 1
The Valentine Theatre presents Greater Tuna, by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard. Two actors portray all the quirky citizens in the tiny Texas town of Tuna in this hilarious send-up of rural America. Greater Tuna will be presented in The Valentine’s intimate Studio A theatre adjacent to the main theatre on Adams.
Set in the fictitious "third-smallest town" in Texas, Greater Tuna features two popular local actors, the venerable Paul Causman and Ryan Zarecki, as the hosts of a local live radio show. During the course of the play, actors don wigs, dresses and various costumes to play more than twenty different characters. Citizens of Tuna call in to the show to debate the important news of the day: the homeless duck population, the Polynesian-themed production of My Fair Lady at the high school, and the recent UFO sightings, among others. Greater Tuna has been the most produced show in the United States and even had command performances at the White House.
Tickets for Greater Tuna are general admission and priced at $20. Greater Tuna performs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 and Sundays at 2. Order tickets by phoning The Valentine box office 419/242-2787 or online at valentinetheatre.com
