‘A Tuna Christmas’ play dates, times and ticket info


Tun Christmas Promo 02Play: A Tuna Christmas


Synopsis: It’s holiday season in Tuna, Texas, where OKKK news personalities Thurston Whellis and Arles Struvie are reporting on the hot competition in the annual Yuletide lawn display contest and Joe Bob Lipsey’s production of “A Christmas Carol.” Both events are in jeopardy – the first because of a mysterious phantom who’s vandalizing the decorations; the other as a result of the promoter’s unpaid electric bills. Although it’s the third smallest town in the Great State of Texas, Tuna is filled with lots of zany characters, and they all possess chips on their sunbaked shoulder the size of the Lone Star State. A Tuna Christmas is both a loving ode and biting satire of small town life, where familiarity breeds contempt and people do their level best to move from one disappointment to the next.

What the Critics Say: “So funny it could make a racoon laugh affectionately at Davy Crockett. It’s far too good for just Christmas.” The New York Post.

Director: TBA

Cast: While the characters are as plentiful as Santa’s helpers on Christmas Eve, there are only two actors in this show, and together they play a scintillating 22 roles – male, female, young, old, nasty and even nastier, they play them all. You’ll be astonished as they trade barbs and insults with even greater speed and adroitness than their costumes, wigs and on-stage personas.

Play Dates and Times: November 16-December 25, 2017, with matinees, twilight and evening performances.

Tickets: Ticket prices range from $39 to $59 with discounts for groups of 20 or more. To reserve your seats, please call (239) 278-4422, visiting or stop by the box office.

Location: In the Off-Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre, Royal Palm Square, 1380 Colonial Boulevard, Fort Myers, FL 33907.
