It’s Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie spend their day reporting on various Tuna yuletide activities, including the hot competition in the annual lawn display contest, the on-again, off-again production of flamboyant Joe Bob Lipsey’s A Christmas Carol and its unpaid electric bill, and the Christmas Phantom, a sneaky vandal who is destroying the competitive yard displays and whose identity may or may not surprise you.
While we catch up on several Tuna residents, including Bertha Bumiller and family, Vera Carp and Petey Fisk, others appear here for the first time, including the hilarious girls of the Tastee Kreme, Helen Bedd and Inita Goodwin. A Tuna Christmas is a total delight for all seasons. Performed by two quick changing comedians, as on Broadway or at CHT last season in Greater Tuna, audiences who have and who have not seen Greater Tuna will enjoy this non-stop, laugh-filled evening.
