Greater Tuna - Panida Theater
Two performers who are part actor and part quick-change artist dominate the hilarious  and often strange  activity that comprises a typical day in Tuna, Texas, the Lone Star States third-smallest city.
In fact, it takes a team of lightning-fast dressers backstage to help create the twenty-odd oddballs who represent the population of the entire Greater Tuna Area  men, women, children, animals and space aliens.  Some quick-changes occur in fewer than four seconds.
Greater Tuna opens with the morning news report from the low-power radio station (275 watts) hosted by two slow-talking broadcast celebrities  Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie who keep the town up-to-date on Tunas late-breaking news.  The play then quick-changes to all the various news scenes and crime scenes around town.
Ed Howard, who directed Greater Tuna on Broadway and is one of the three writers of the comedy, directs this touring production.
Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard wrote Greater Tuna in Austin in 1981 where it became a cult favorite before moving to the Alley Theatre in Houston then to the Kennedy Center and finally an extended run at Circle In The Square in New York. The show also ran on Broadway, won a Tony Award and was produced on HBO.
Since then, the trio has written popular sequels: A Tuna Christmas and Red, White and Tuna. and Tuna Does Vegas.

"It is funny because it is so scrupulously honest. And being so honest, it is also curiously touching." -WASHINGTON POST
