‘Tuna Christmas’ reels in big holiday laughs
Proscenium Players Inc. will present “A Tuna Christmas,” by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard in December at the Brewery Arts Center, 449 W. King St., Carson City.
The performance is at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10, and at 2 p.m. Dec. 4 and 11.
Greater Tuna, Texas, is a town too small to find on the map. However, the residents are as colorful as any you’ll find in Dallas or Waco or Sand City.
Didi and R.R. Snavely are the owners of Didi’s Used Weapons shop, and Vera Karp has won the Christmas yard display contest 14 years in a row. The Tastee Creme girls and Didi are all trying to take the prize away from her, even though Sheriff Givens thought the dummies in the stocking of the girl’s front yard was a double homicide.
R.R. is lookin’ for UFO’s, and PD Fisk is trying to make her coyote, Fresno, into a vegetarian.
Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie, local announcers and “celebrities” on radio station OKKK, are bound to keep the audience well informed about the goin’s on.
Tickets are $15 general admission, and $12 for BAC members, seniors and students. Reservations are advised and can be made by calling 775-883-1976, or going online at http://www.breweryarts.org. There also will be an opening night party to meet the people of Tuna. For more information, call 775-883-1976.
