Casa Mañana to Present GREATER TUNA, 8/23-26
For more than 30 years the denizens of Greater Tuna, the third smallest town in the great state of Texas, have been making us laugh and cry in this hilarious comedy of small town morals and more. Come visit your favorite Tuna characters: Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Didi Snavely, the whole Bumiller family, Aunt Pearl, and of course everyone's favorite neighbor, Vera Carp. If you haven't seen Greater Tuna, then this is your chance! This show has mature subject matter.

His most recent credits at Casa Mañana include "Tweedle Dee" and "Tweedle Dum" in Disney's Alice in Wonderland, Jr., "Edna Turnblad" in Hairspray and "Governor" in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.
