somewhat naïve, excellent singer. Vocal Range: A3 – E4

Requirements: This show is a sequel to the hilarious comedy, GREATER TUNA, which received several TMA nominations. This is a 2-man show that relies on fast-paced comic timing. Over 12 characters are played by each actor, with split-second costume changes to return to portray all 24 polyester-clad citizens of Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas. Be prepared to play characters male, female, young, old, and eccentric in a fast-paced show.

Synopsis: It’s 24 hours before Christmas and the eccentric characters are attempting to cope with seasonal traumas such as a disaster-prone little Theatre Production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, and a yard decorating contest being sabotaged by a mysterious phantom.

Characters for Thurston:

Thurston Wheelis, Elmer Watkins, Bertha Bumiller, R.R. Snavely, Aunt Pearl Burras, Sheriff Givens, Ike Thompson, Inita Goodwin, Leonard Childers, Phoebe Burkhalter, Joe Bob Lipsey
