A Tuna Christmas Directed by Mark Taylor

Opens December 7 and runs through December 17
Thursday – Saturday at 7pm, Matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2pm

Taking place in the made up town of Tuna, Texas, A Tuna Christmas is both an homage and a satire of small town southern living during the holidays. Local radio station personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on the town’s Yuletide activities. The Tuna, Texas annual Christmas Yard Display Contest has been thrown a curve by a mysterious vandal who sabotages the displays. Meanwhile, the townsfolk try to manage their own crazy holiday turmoil, including family woes, probation problems, and an ill-fated production of “A Christmas Carol.” This is wildly funny holiday entertainment for grown ups.
