Encore Theatre presents 'A Tuna Christmas'
Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Encore Theatre Company is proud to present “A Tuna Christmas,” written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard. 

It is co-directed by and Starring Bowd Beal and Hugh Britt.

In this hilarious sequel to “Greater Tuna,” it’s Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. 

An affectionate commentary on small-town, Southern life and attitudes, two men play the entire cast of over 20 eccentric characters of both genders and various ages. 

The story of “A Tuna Christmas” centers on the town’s annual Christmas Yard Display Contest, won 14 times in a row by Vera Carp. 

A mysterious “Christmas Phantom,” known for vandalizing the yard displays, threatens to throw the contest into turmoil. 

Among the subplots are Stanley Bumiller’s attempts to end his probation and leave Tuna, Bertha Bumiller’s trying to hold her family together at Christmastime, and Joe Bob Lipsey’s struggle to mount successfully his production of “A Christmas Carol” despite numerous vexations and obstacles.

A Tuna Christmas is a total delight for all seasons. 

Audiences who have and who have not seen Greater Tuna will enjoy this laugh filled evening.

Performances are Dec. 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22 at 7:30 p.m. and December 16 at 2:30 p.m.

For information or to reserve seats call (615)598-8950 or Purchase tickets on-line at www.encore-theatre-company.org.
