City Theatre presents... a Tuna christmas

The guys – and gals - are back! A Tuna Christmas is the outrageous holiday comedy with such southern fun and charm you don’t want to miss. Reuniting Rick Smith and Scot Friedman, two actors introduce us to twenty-two of the wildest Tuna, Texas – population, 24 – citizens you will ever meet as they search for the Christmas phantom who has been spreading havoc on their little town. With quick-change zaniness and quicksilver one-liners, they bring “joy to the world” in true Texas fashion. Come have a ball, y’all! Starring Scot Friedman and Rick Smith.


December 19, 2019 – January 5, 2020 Thursday - Saturday 8:00 pm. Sunday 3:00 pm.
