The traditional New Year’s Eve celebration offered by the Baytown Little Theater will be done in wild and hilarious Texas fashion, as Tuna, Texas, third smallest town in the state, returns to the Baytown community theater’s stage. Featuring performances by two of the BLT’s best known performers, Jim Wadzinski and Kim Martin, the play is the latest in the series of satiric comedies created by Texas legends Joe Sears, Jaston Williams, and Ed Howard. Sears and Williams have appeared for many years in the plays that feature well-known characters who populate the tiny West Texas town of Tuna.
Eighteen characters make their appearance in Tuna Does Vegas, from radio personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie, to Vera Carp and Aunt Pearl Burras. New characters appear courtesy of the visit to Las Vegas, including Anna Conda and two Elvis impersonators well past their prime. All characters are played by Martin and Wadzinski, who are supported and hurried back onstage by director Sylvia Wadzinski, assistant director Fred White, stage manager Beth Darby, and Tammy Calloway, Robin McDougal, Mary Lou Martin, and Koni Hovater. Megan Thomas and Mary Price provide special costume construction support. Tickets for all performances are going fast, so click here to get tickets before they are all gone.
