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 at the Cumberland County Playhouse. Times and ticket information available here.

Crossville – Clue – Who can resist a hysterical comedy and a thrilling murder mystery rolled up into one terrific play? On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, plus a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe!  Soon the guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up.  Based on the Hasbro board game Clue and adapted from the cult classic film, Clue is the comedic whodunit that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end. Show runs March 6 to April 16 at the Cumberland County Playhouse. Times and ticket information available here.
