GREATER TUNA is the hilarious comedy about Texas' third smallest town, where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna -- men, women, children and animals.
The comedy features the acting talents of Alex Catalano and Daniel Greene who play twenty roles. The show is being directed by Steve Dawson.
