The McLean Community Players Present A TUNA CHRISTMAS
The McLean Community Players will present the satiric comedy A Tuna Christmas by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard at Vinson Hall's Community Building Ballroom, 1735 Kirby Road, McLean, VA 22101. It opens Friday, Oct. 6, and runs for four performances-Oct. 6, 7, 13, and 14. It is directed by veteran MCP director Jerry Bonnes and produced by Bunny Bonnes and Claire L. Tse.
A Tuna Christmas is the second in a series of comedic plays set in the fictional town of Tuna, the third-smallest town in Texas. Residents of Tuna are extremely busy preparing for Christmas. Many events are taking place around town, including the Christmas Yard Display Contest, the Tuna Little Theatre production of A Christmas Carol, and the Station OKKK Christmas party and potluck. And with all that, the Christmas Phantom is expected to play a prank involving the yard displays, and the city secretary may cut off electricity to the theater. MCP's cast of seven will play twenty-one roles.
Director Jerry Bonnes says, "Laughter is the best medicine. A visit to see the characters in A Tuna Christmas at Vinson Hall IS the prescription to add some madcap delight to your day no matter what time of the year."
A Tuna Christmas opens Saturday, Oct. 6 and runs Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. through Oct. 14 in Vinson Hall's Community Building Ballroom, 1735 Kirby Road, McLean, VA 22101.Tickets are $18-$20, and are available at www.McLeanPlayers.org or through Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006. Tickets will also be available at the door.
The McLean Community Players, based in McLean, Virginia, is committed to doing theater for the community, in the community, with the community and sustained by the community. MCP is funded in part by the Arts Council of Fairfax County.
