Red, White and Tuna at Broadway West
Submitted By Mary Galde
Broadway West Theatre Company in Fremont presents ÒRed, White and TunaÓ by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard, and directed by Jim Woodbury. The show runs from Friday, July 14 through Saturday, August 12 and features Tom Shamrell and Todd Wright.
This third installment in the Tuna trilogy takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester-clad citizens of Texas' third smallest town. Along with Tuna's perennial favorites, some new Tuna denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. It's been several years since we left Bertha and Arles dancing at the end of A Tuna Christmas... Did the romance blossom? Has Didi Snavley received any "cosmic" communications from R.R.'s UFO? Did Stanley make his fortune in the Albuquerque taxidermy business? These and other burning questions will be asked and answered in the side-splitting spoof of life in rural America
Performances will be at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. The Sunday, July 23 performance will open with a 12:15 p.m. continental brunch followed by the show at 1 p.m. Shows on Sunday, July 30 and August 6 will be held at 3 p.m.
