Crossville – Tuna Does Vegas – This hilarious comedy re-unites the loveable and eccentric characters from the third smallest town in Texas as they take a rambling romp in “Sin City”.  The hilarity begins when oddball-conservative radio host Arles Struvie (Patty Payne) announces on air that he and his wife Bertha Bumiller (Jason Ross) are heading to Vegas to renew their wedding vows…but everyone in Tuna, TX goes along for the ride! “Tuna Does Vegas” will feature all your favorite characters from the smash hit “Red, White and Tuna” with some hysterical new characters too! The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two actors, making this send-up on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all the inhabitants of Tuna – men, women, as well as Vegas showgirls, and more! Show runs Jan. 18 to March 19. Times and ticket information available here.
