Greater Tuna | The Long Center for the Performing Arts

The Citizens of Tuna, Texas Return — Catch Some Greater Tuna at the Long Center this April!

The long-awaited return of Tuna, Texas’ most famous residents is here, and you know them well.

Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna—men, women, children and animals.

The show began as a simple party skit based on a political cartoon more than 30 years ago right here in Austin. Talented creators Joe Sears, Jaston Williams and Ed Howard were the imaginative authors that parlayed the sketch into a critically acclaimed production which has entertained audiences across the country ever since.

And now, Jaston Williams directs this all-new production that is sure to create a whole new generation of Tuna fans, as well as attract the thousands who have loved it for the last 30 years. Welcome home!

See Didi, Petey, Pearl and all your other favorite Tuna citizens April 14 – 15 at the Long Center.
