A Tuna Christmas


by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard


December 10-12 & 17-19, 2021


“So funny it could make a racoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett […] It’s far too good for just Christmas.” – New York Post

Twenty-two characters, dozens of costume changes, and two actors. A Tuna Christmas features the fictional town of Tuna, Texas with Arles and Thurston narrating the action from their 275-watt radio station. Bertha Bumiller and her three kids, Didi Snavely and her used weapons, Petey Fisk and his stray animals of all kinds, Pearl Burras and her murderous ways (blue jays), and Vera Carp, head of the Obscene Committee of the Smut Snatchers of the New Order  ̶  all have their moments. Who will win the Christmas decorating contest? Will Arles and Bertha’s budding romance bloom? And who is the mysterious Christmas Phantom, who has “wreaked havoc in the greater Tuna area for years?” Sit back and relax. All will be revealed.
