On Pitch Performing Arts to Present GREAT TUNA Starting This Week

On Pitch Performing Arts will celebrate its first community theater production produced on their newly built Creator's Stage with the opening "Great Tuna" on Friday, October 7th. For a limited 6 show run, the off-Broadway hit features two actors creating the entire population of Tuna, Texas in a tour de farce of quick-change artistry in this hilarious send-up of small-town morals and mores. Celebrating the inaugural performance of a newly constructed stage and featuring OPPA!'s Executive Director, and Board President changing costumes and characterization faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote. 2 actors, 20 roles, 1 great night of theater!

"Remolded and built completely by our volunteers, this new black box style stage provides a second performance space to our venue," says Danielle Bendinelli, OPPA! Development Director. "Not only has it allowed us to expand or Children's Education Department offerings, but we have also announced the Creator's Series season, bringing 4 additional community theater productions to our annual line-up. This series will be geared more towards intimate, small cast, non-musical plays."

OPPA!'s 2023 Creator's Series Season will include "The Laramie Project", "Daddy Long Legs", "A Tuna Christmas" and "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)". The Creator's Stage and Series is made possible in part by members of the On Pitch Performing Arts Creator's Club and their generous monthly donations.
