Greater Tuna follows a day in the life of all the residents of Tuna, a small town in Texas.
Famous for its wacky characters, lightning-fast costume changes and witty comedy, larger than life characters will leave the entire family laughing in the aisles. All the residents of Tuna, Texas (of all gender, age and intelligence!) are played by only two actors.
Greater Tuna stars Fort Peck favorites Stephen Brunson, who played leading roles in All Shook Up and Ring of Fire and directed last season’s Gypsy, and Jamie Parnell, whose FPST credits include Willy Wonka in Wonka, Billy in Chicago and Edna in Hairspray.
According to Brunson, “The challenge with so many roles in one show is keeping consistent to the needs of each character, while knowing how to navigate all of the insanely fast costume changes.”
Greater Tuna is directed by Fort Peck artistic director Andy Meyers, assisted by Doug Dion, scenic design; Aaron Torgerson, lighting; Gwenn Mann, costume; Mike Rusktad, sound; Shy Iverson, props; Annie Rottenbiller, production manager; and Ryan Luwe, technical director.
Performances are Aug. 16 through Sept. 1: Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 4 p.m.
