Fremont Community Theatre and Director Pete Lowry are pleased to present RED, WHITE AND TUNA by by Ed Howard, Joe Sears and Jaston Williams.
The much anticipated third installment in the Tuna trilogy takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester–clad citizens of Texas’ third smallest town. Along with Tuna’s perennial favorites, some new denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun from the land where the Lion’s Club is too literal and Patsy Cline never dies.
The show is a two-man show with the 19 different characters assigned per the list below:
