“A two-man cast will take the parts of the entire population of Greater Tuna when the comedy – which is built around Texas’ third smallest town – comes to the Whidbey Playhouse in September.Popular Playhouse actors, Tom Ledcke and Dan Davies, depict all of the inhabitants of the town of Tuna – men, women, children and animals. This satire on rural American life, set in a town where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies, has played coast-to-coast and spent over a year Off-Broadway. In 1985 the play was the most-produced play in the United States at schools, colleges, community and professional theaters. Tickets go on sale at the Playhouse Aug. 8 for all performances. Opening night is Sept. 8 with additional performances Sept. 9, 14, 15, 16, 17, 21, 22, 23, 24 28, 29 and 30. A special Texas BBQ-style dinner performance is scheduled Sept.10, beginning with a social hour at 4 p.m. Dinner follows at 5 p.m. and curtain time is 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the dinner show are $25 per person. Call Whidbey Playhouse at 679-2237 for reservations and information.”
