Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict 20 of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals. And 42 costume changes!
The show began as a simple party skit based on a political cartoon more than 35 years ago in Austin, Texas. Talented creators Joe Sears, Jaston Williams and Ed Howard were the imaginative authors that parlayed the sketch into a critically-acclaimed production which has entertained audiences across the country ever since.
