November 13th - December 20th

It’s the holiday season in Tuna, Texas, the third-smallest town in the Lone Star State, and two actors bring over twenty memorable characters to life in this tour-de-force performance.

In A Tuna Christmaswe get a snapshot of the Yuletide activities of the eccentric denizens of Tuna, from a highly contentious Christmas Yard Display Contest threatened by the vandalism of the mysterious “Christmas Phantom”; to a production of A Christmas Carol seemingly doomed by an overdue electric bill. 

We meet Bertha Bumiller, doing her best to hold her family together during the holidays; Didi Snavely, the owner of a used-weapons store; Vera Carp, leader of the Smut Snatchers of the New Order; and Inita Goodwin and Helen Bedd, best friends and waitresses at the Tastee Kreme; among many others!
