Placer Community Theater Presents Greater Tuna, A hilarious Two-Man Comedy

March 15 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$25

Placer Community Theater (PCT) is presenting one of Off Broadway’s most endearing comedies, Greater Tuna, starting March 15th. Greater Tuna will also mark the final show of PCT’s 15th anniversary season and the 40th production in the history of Auburn’s non-profit community theatre company.

The story introduces us to the third-smallest town in Texas, whose citizens are all portrayed by two featured actors, Dave Atkinson and John Watson, who change characterizations and costumes faster than a duck eats a junebug! Greater Tuna was originally produced in 1981 in Austin, Texas, by its authors, Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. One year after its premiere, Greater Tuna opened Off Broadway, ran for over a year there, and then went on to tour theaters all over America for over thirty years. It has become one of the most produced plays in American theatre history. And with good reason! You will marvel at the quick change artistry and the twenty characters of the town — men, women, children and even animals — in this fast-paced comedy.

Evening performances will be presented at the General Gomez Arts & Event Center located at 808 Lincoln Way in downtown Auburn at 7:30 pm on March 15, 16, 22, 23, 29 and 30. Matinee performances will be offered at 2:00 pm on March 17, 24 and 30.
