Theatre Huntsville is proud to present the rip-roaring comedy Greater Tuna, by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard.

Tuna, Texas is the third smallest town in the Lone Star State, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies! This hilarious send-up of small town morals and mores is a tour de farce of quick-change artistry — changing costumes and personas faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote. Two actors, 20 characters and a barrel of laughs, y’all.
The cast of the production includes just two actors, veterans Fred Sayers and Carlos Bofill.  They play all of the men, women and children that inhabit Tuna, Texas, moving seamlessly from one character to the next. The production is directed by Elaine Hubbard, assisted by Micki Lighthall and Mark B Moore.  The production staff includes Technical Director/Scenic Designer Karl King, Costumer Designer Terri King, and Lighting Designer Cynthia Meyer and Produce Michael Malone.
Greater Tuna will be performed at the Von Braun Center Playhouse on September 14, 15, 20, 21 & 22, 2012 @ 7:30 p.m and July 16 & 22, 2012 @ 2 p.m.  Tickets for Greater Tuna are $18 for adults and $15 for seniors (65+), students, and active duty military and can be purchased online at www.yourseatiswaiting.org.  Call the box office at 256-536-0807 for group rates and handicapped seating.
This production is intended for adult and teen audiences, as it contains some adult language and situations.
