It’s 24 hours before Christmas, and all hell is about to break loose in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas – where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never died! This year, in addition to the usual holiday headaches, a mysterious “phantom” has been vandalizing the Christmas displays in the town’s annual yard-decorating contest, and a disaster prone production of “A Christmas Carol” is falling apart.
“A Tuna Christmas” is an uproarious comedy written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard, and originally produced by Charles H Duggan. Gettysburg Stage’s production is directed by Rebecca O’Leary, and reprising their role as all 24 characters are comedic duo Jeb Beard and Ryyn Currey.
“I’m thrilled to have Jeb Beard and Ryyn Currey back for a third trip to Tuna, Texas!” says director Rebecca O’Leary. “Spending the holidays with familiar Tuna faces like Arles Struvie, Bertha Bumiller, Aunt Pearl Burrasm and Didi Snavely (of Didi’s Used Weapons, where ‘you’ll have a holly jolly Christmas, and the criminal will have a silent night!’), is an experience you’ll never forget!”
Performances of “A Tuna Christmas” are at the GAR Building at 53 E Middle St, Gettysburg at 8pm on December 7th, 8th, 14th and 15th. To request reservations, or for group bookings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (717) 638-8799. General admission is $15, and $12 for students, seniors and military personnel.
