"A Christmas Tuna" On The Air at Longview's Stageworks Northwest

A TUNA CHRISTMAS opened last night (Friday, December 6) and runs through December 29. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday shows are at 2 p.m. at the Stageworks Northwest Theatre, 1433 Commerce Ave. Longview, Wash. in the old Longview Movie Theatre.

The two-man play features Michael Robert Cheney and Joseph LeBard playing over twenty characters (both male and female) in this sequel to "Greater Tuna." It's Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest. In other news, voracious Joe Bob Lipsey's production of "A Christmas Carol" is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills.

Both Cheney and LeBard have little time to come up for air while "on the air" in this celebrated Christmas comedy from the south. It's sure to be a wild and wacky ride.

WARNING: The content of this play may not be for everyone and I have chosen not to review it due to other online reviews. Several cited issues with course language and possible crude humor. I have seen "Greater Tuna" and found it funny. I just think you should be forewarned, it might not be what you expect, but then it just might be your cup of Christmas cheer, too.

Tickets are only $12 (all seats) and you can purchase them online at
