Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts presents: Greater Tuna
Welcome back to Tuna, Texas! Greater Tuna is a hilarious and irreverent comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of Tuna citizens – men, women, children, and animals alike - are portrayed by ONLY 2 performers, making this satire on life in rural America both crazy and delightful as they change characters and costumes at breakneck speed. Called “a good ol’ down-home laugh-out-loud fest,” Greater Tuna has enjoyed worldwide success, including long-running engagements both on and off-Broadway, at the White House, and as an HBO special. 2 Actors, 20 Characters, 20 million laughs!
