‘Tuna Does Vegas’ coming to Orange
“Tuna Does Vegas” rolls into the Lutcher Theater for a strictly limited engagement of four performances Friday through Sunday.
Tickets are $39.50. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with 2 p.m matinees Saturday and Sunday.
Starring Joe Sears and Jaston Williams, “Tuna Does Vegas” re-unites the lovable 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 goes along for the ride!
Written by Williams, Sears and Ed Howard, “Tuna Does Vegas” features favorite characters from the award-winning “Greater Tuna” productions with some new characters, staged by Howard.
“Tuna Does Vegas” balances as both an affectionate comment on small-town life and attitudes, as well as a hilarious satire of the same. As usual, the two-man show with lightning constume changes have Sears and Williams as Tuna residents, Vegas showgirls, Elvis impersonators and more.
The show features scenery designed by Christopher McCollum, costumes designed by Linda Fisher, lighting designed by David Nancarrow and sound designed by Ken Huncovsky.
