Greater Tuna

Pensacola Saenger Theatre Thursday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m.

GREATER TUNA, the hilarious hit

comedy about the third smallest town in Texas where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies, is coming back to theatres, this time with Co-Creator Jaston Williams sitting in the Director’s chair. Although written and first performed over thirty years ago, the residents of Tuna could not be more up-to-date. Contemporary politicians and The Religious Right have put the basis for the comedy in GREATER TUNA back on the front pages of today’s newspapers. Vera Carp is still leading the Smut Snatchers of the New Order in their campaign to clear the library shelves of dirty books like “Huckleberry Finn” and “Romeo and Juliet.” Elmer Watkins speaks up for the KKK, Petey Fisk argues for animal rights and a Celebrity Murder is on the front page. UFO Sightings? A Fat, Overbearing Talk Show Host? Celebrity Murder? It’s not the cover of Time Magazine, it’s GREATER TUNA and it’s Hilarious! ALL SEATS RESERVED.
