Ouachita Little Theatre has been looking for ways to keep our community entertained during the past year of the pandemic. With socially distanced seating in the theater, limited capacity audiences, and required masking, OLT has safely brought us some amazing readers theater style performances and small productions. The theater is inching back toward normal with the next venture in the presentation of “Greater Tuna.”
“Greater Tuna” is a very popular comedy about a tiny town in Texas called Tuna. The wacky inhabitants of this town include men, women, children, and animals who are all played by two experienced actors, Scotty Jenkins and John Puddington.
Acting in this play requires great skill from these two men who must literally transform themselves into different characters at a breakneck speed. They use inventive voicework, creative costume changes, and visual humor to keep audiences laughing and thoroughly entertained.
Production consultant Brad Storey reports, “Scotty and John have been working really hard at rehearsals to bring laughter and fun to our audience. This is a challenging play to memorize and execute, but this promises to be a show that is definitely worth your time and money!”
Opening night is Friday, April 16 at 7:30; another evening performance is Saturday, April 17, and a Sunday matinee will be performed April 18 at 2:30 PM. Season tickets will be honored, or tickets may be purchased for $10 at the door.
You can also buy advance tickets at the OLT office on Main Street on Fridays between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM.
