LTC kicks off summer with trip to Greater Tuna, Texas


The comedy opens July 12

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO: TRIUMPH PHOTOGRAPHY - Jay Randall Horenstein and Gary Brickner-Schulz appear in Lakewood Theatre Companys Greater Tuna, which opens July 12 and runs through Aug. 18. Meet the fine citizens of Greater Tuna as Lakewood Theatre Company kicks off summer with the comedy “Greater Tuna,” the comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.

The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers (Jay Randall Horenstein and Gary Brickner-Schulz), making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals.

“Greater Tuna,” written by Jaston Williams, Ed Howard and Joe Sears, is directed by Steve Knox. Lakewood’s production opens July 12 and continues until Aug. 18 with performances scheduled Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 7 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on July 21, Aug. 4, 11 and 18.

Scenic design for Lakewood’s production is by Chris Whitten, costume design is by Margaret Louise Chapman and lighting design is by Kurt Herman. The stage manager is Michael DeMaio, hair design is by Jane Holmes, technical director is Kurt Herman, properties are by Felix Kelsey and the producer is Kay Vega.
