A TUNA CHRISTMAS ON SALE!!!
Dec 12-21, 2014 — Newmark Theatre
(Portland’5 Centers for the Arts)
Seasons Greetings from Tuna, Texas!!! Back by popular demand, Oregon Repertory Theatre presents the fun and entertaining A Tuna Christmas – the hilarious sequel to the hit comedy, Greater Tuna, by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. It is sure to be a smash hit! Come spend the holidays with all your old favorite citizens of Tuna, and make some new friends while you’re there. Master comedians Jeffrey Jason Gilpin and Alan King (directed by Philip Cuomo), along with some split-second costume changes, portray all 22 citizens of Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.
This time, it’s 24 hours before Christmas and all comic hell is about to break loose as the delightfully eccentric characters attempt to cope with seasonal traumas such as a disaster prone little theatre production of A Christmas Carol, and a yard display contest that is being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom! Bring the whole family and join in the holiday fun! When asked why he chose to do A Tuna Christmas, Drammy-award winning director Philip Cuomo said, “It’s Christmas, a season of joy and celebration. What better way to spend the holidays than creating a production filled with Texas-sized belly laughs and the heart to match?”
Collaborating with the region’s finest, award-winning theatre artists, Oregon Repertory Theatre is committed to creating beauty and laughter in our community. The company is comprised of several Drammy-award winners and graduates of prestigious theatre conservatories from around the globe.
