Back by Popular Demand! Greater Tuna Returns to San Miguel
By Beverly Fairfax
Greater Tuna, the comedy about small towns, small minds, and big hearts that ran for 56 performances in Puerto Vallarta and sold-out many nights here in San Miguel in June, will return to San Miguel on August 17. Early reservations are highly recommended for this popular comedy, described by the authors as having plenty of “Tex” appeal.
August 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25, 28 and 29, 7:30pm
Teatro Santa Ana
The comedy, starring Tracy Parks and Chaz Weathers, takes place in Tuna, the “third smallest” town in Texas, where “the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.” The two actors play 20 characters (men, women, and dogs) and make 42 costume changes throughout the two-act play. One of the most popular plays ever produced, it ran for 30 years (all over the world but mostly in Texas) including a stint on Broadway and two command performances at the White House before the original creators, Joe Sears, Jaston Williams, and Ed Howard retired. Picking up the roles in San Miguel’s production will be The Palm Cabaret’s own entertainment director, Tracy Parks, from Puerto Vallarta, and Chaz Weathers, a San Diego-based entertainer known for his sharp comedic timing and spot-on character portrayals.
Performances are August 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25, 28, and 29 at 7:30pm. Tickets may be purchased at the Santa Ana box office or by phone at 415 152 0293 ext 116. Online tickets are also available at www.greatertunasma.brownpapertickets.com.
