A Tuna Christmas (Dec. 12)
Date: December 12, 2013 - House opens at 7:00 pm for seating
Location: Black Box Theatre, Walton Fine Arts Center
Ticket Price: $8.00
HO, HO, HO! Merry Christmas! Come ring in the holidays this December with A TUNA CHRISTMAS, produced in our Black Box Theater. It’s Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including the blistering competition in the annual holiday lawn decorating contest. In other news, the exceedingly eager Joe Bob Lipsey’s production of “A Christmas Carol” is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna personalities join in the holiday fun as one spaceship, twenty-one characters, 300+ costume changes, and 1,000 or more laughs cause your sides to split. A TUNA CHRISTMAS comes to Clarksville!
Don’t blame us if you spend your holidays rolling in the aisles as the residents of Tuna, Texas, celebrate Christmas as only a bunch of good old boys and gals can… Forget the North Pole and head to Walton Fine Arts Center - Black Box Theatre for a night of family fun and seasonal entertainment that will be remembered for holidays to come! Merry Tuna Christmas Y’all!
