LUBBOCK, TX–(Marketwire – October 28, 2010) – Seasons Greetings from Tuna! A TUNA CHRISTMAS, the hilarious sequel to the hit “Greater Tuna,” comes to Lubbock for a limited five-show engagement November 16-19 and 21, 2010. Spend the holidays with all your favorite citizens of Tuna, Texas, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies — now with all-new sets and costumes.
Master comedians Joe Sears and Jaston Williams — with their deft comedic timing, trademark characterizations, and split-second costume changes — bring all 24 citizens of Tuna back to the stage. It’s 24 hours before Christmas and all comic hell is about to break loose as the delightfully eccentric characters attempt to cope with seasonal traumas, including a disaster-prone little theatre production of “A Christmas Carol” and a yard decorating contest being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom.
Local proprietor of the used weapons shop, Didi Snaveley, has decked her halls with Uzis, grenades and switchblades. Baptist extraordinaire Vera Carp has visions of winning the local Yard Display Contest dancing through her head but a mysterious “Christmas Phantom” is defacing people’s displays. Now, Vera’s life-size statues of Bing Crosby and Natalie Wood in the living nativity scene (complete with live sheep) are in jeopardy while Bertha Bumiller’s family is falling apart on the spot. Her surly twins Stanley and Charlene, and her philandering husband cannot even find time to trim the tree and bake cookies. A Norman Rockwell painting this is not.
“The show is a hoot, and the cast, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams, is two hoots,” proclaims The New York Times. “This show is so funny. It’s far too good just for Christmas,” states the New York Post. “There’s plenty to ho-ho-ho about. A TUNA CHRISTMAS is a delightful gift for longtime Tuna fans and newcomers alike,” exclaims the Dallas Morning News. “A TUNA CHRISTMAS delivers a stocking full of laughs,” proclaims the Houston Chronicle. ABC Radio sums it up by declaring A TUNA CHRISTMAS “a Comic Masterpiece!”
Directed by Ed Howard, the all-new production of A TUNA CHRISTMAS features scenic design by Christopher McCollum, costume design by Linda Fisher, lighting design by Root Choyce, and sound design by Ken Huncovsky.
Celebrate the holidays with laughter in A TUNA CHRISTMAS at City Bank Auditorium November 16-21. Tickets are available by calling 806.770.2000 or online at www.CelebrityAttractions.com.
