Last call for ‘A Tuna Christmas’
If you have not seen “A Tuna Christmas” yet, make plans now because the final four performances will run this weekend, beginning tonight, Thursday, Feb. 24, and on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 24 and 25, at 7:30 p.m. A matinee performance will conclude the production on Sunday, Feb. 27, at 2:30 p.m.
The eclectic band of characters from the town of Tuna, Texas first introduced in “Greater Tuna” will be joined by a few new ones in this holiday themed sequel showing at the Port Aransas Community Theatre, 2327 State Hwy. 361.
Tickets are $15 for Friday and Saturday performances and $10 for Thursday and matinee performances, with no other discounts or coupons accepted for $10 performances. Tickets can be purchased by calling the theatre box office at 749- 6036 between 1-5 p.m. on Wednesday through Friday, by visiting the theatre’s Web site, www.portaransascommunitytheater.com and following the link for obtaining tickets, or at the box office one hour before performances.
The theatre suggests bringing a jacket to performances as the theatre is often kept at a lower temperature to help offset the heat onstage from the stage lighting.
According to the Greater Tuna Web site, all comic hell breaks loose as the eccentric characters attempt to cope with seasonal traumas such as a disaster-prone small theatre production of “A Christmas Carol,” and a yard decorating contest that is being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom.
Only two performers portray the more than 20 characters, including men, women and children, with the story tied together through two radio station disc jockeys as they broadcast to the Greater Tuna area.
