Tuna Christmas, With Sears and Williams, Returns to DC Thanksgiving Week

News   Tuna Christmas, With Sears and Williams, Returns to DC Thanksgiving Week
 
A Tuna Christmas, the yule-flavored sequel to the hit comedy Greater Tuna, will return to Washington, DC, for a limited one-week engagement Nov. 20-25 at the Warner Theatre.

Writer-actors Joe Sears and Jaston Williams play "your favorite citizens of Tuna, TX, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies."

A regional hit that also played a limited Broadway engagement, A Tuna Christmas takes place "24 hours before Christmas and all comic hell is about to break loose as the delightfully eccentric characters attempt to cope with seasonal traumas, including a disaster-prone Little Theatre production of A Christmas Carol and a yard-decorating contest that is being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom."

Tony Award-nominated Sears and Williams have been touring extensively with the Tuna trilogy for 25 years. Their over 30-year stage partnership "has outlasted the comic duos of Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello and Martin and Lewis," according to production notes.

A Tuna Christmas features scenery by Loren Sherman, lighting design by Root Choyce, sound design by Ken Huncovsky and costumes by Linda Fisher. The production is presented by producer Charles H. Duggan.

Performances are Tuesday and Wednesday at 8 PM, Friday and Saturday at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 1 PM and 6:30 PM (no performance on Thanksgiving Day). Tickets range from $25 to $48. For general information call (202) 783-4000. Tickets may be purchased at the Warner Theatre box office or at any TicketMaster Ticket Center. To charge by phone, call (202) 397-SEAT, (703) 573-SEAT or (410) 547-SEAT.
