A Tuna Christmas (2011)Edit

by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed HowardEdit

Summary: The plot of A Tuna Christmas centers on the town's annual Christmas Yard Display Contest, won 14 times in a row by Vera Carp. A mysterious "Christmas Phantom," known for vandalizing the yard displays, threatens to throw the contest into turmoil. Among the subplots are Stanley Bumiller's attempts to end his probation and leave Tuna, Bertha Bumiller's trying to hold her family together at Christmastime, and Joe Bob Lipsey's struggle to mount successfully his production of A Christmas Carol despite numerous vexations and obstacles. (from Wikipedia)

A Tuna Christmas was produced as a special holiday benefit event. While not technically part of the mainstage 2011-2012 Season, the show was produced by TLT.
