Dates: March 15, 16, 17 and 22, 23, 24, Wednesday 27 and 29, 30, 31
“Good Old Charlie” was an inveterate philandering cad, a womanizer, with a foul mouth and taste for booze. Unfortunately, he was killed hightailing it from a lover’s husband’s yacht. Through a Celestial fluke Charlie’s soul enters the well rounded body of a woman (cigar in hand) and gets a second chance at life and love- from a very different perspective. Despite all these complications, Charlie’s best friend, George, begins to fall for Charlie knowing full well that she really is who she claims to be. Lauren Bacall an Broadway and Debbie Reynolds onscreen played the title role of this knockabout farce by the author of The Seven Year Itch.

Summer-“Tuna Does Vegas”
The hilarious new installment from the legendary Greater Tuna creative team! Tuna Does Vegas re-unites the loveable and eccentric characters from the ‘third smallest town in Texas’ as they take a rambling romp in Sin City. The hilarity begins when oddball-conservative radio host Arles Struvie announces on air that he and his wife Bertha Bumiller are heading to Vegas to renew their wedding vows… but everyone in Tuna, Texas goes along for the ride! The eclectic band of citizens that make up this small town are even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna—men, women, as well as Vegas showgirls, Elvis impersonators and more!
