A Tuna Christmas is a broad comedy set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas. The plot 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, has the contestants on edge. Among the subplots are Stanley Bumiller’s attempts to end his probation and leave Tuna, Bertha Bumiller’s struggle to hold her family together at Christmastime, and Joe Bob Lipsey’s fight to mount successfully his production of A Christmas Carol despite the town controller of the electric company threatening to turn the lights off. The play is both an affectionate commentary and withering satire of small town, Southern life and attitudes. Two actors play all 20 zany characters.
This production will be indoors in the Palace Theatre on the Springer Stage. There will be a 2 seat separation between groups and empty rows every other row. Masks are required, even when sitting in your seat. No concessions will be sold at this time.
Updated protocols for inside shows include, but are not limited to: temperature checks at the door, masks required at all times, hand-sanitizer for every patron, frequent sanitizing of all surfaces, and 2 seat separation, an empty row between groups, staggered arrival and dismissal and social distancing throughout the building.
