The wacky residents of Tuna, Texas return to Lakewood Playhouse and invade Tacoma Little Theatre this holiday season in A TUNA CHRISTMAS, by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. Continuing their collaboration which began last year with their hit production of GREATER TUNA, director Elliot Weiner returns to direct Lakewood Playhouse Managing Artistic Director Marcus Walker and (now) Tacoma Little Theatre Managing Artistic Director Scott Campbell as actors portraying some twenty different and hilarious roles in this yuletide-themed sequel. The show will have runs at both theatres, from November 27 through December 20 (see details below). A Tuna Christmas promises to give us all a whole new slant on Christmas. Now this is Christmas … in Tuna, Texas!
A TUNA CHRISTMAS’ set and costumes are designed by Larry Hagerman and Hally Phillips, lighting designed by Kris Zetterstrom, and sound designed by Joe Kelly.
