‘A Tuna Christmas’ Sure to Be a Delight at TAP

Celebrate the holidays with Third Avenue Playhouse (TAP) during its production of A Tuna Christmas, written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard.

It’s Christmas eve in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, and radio station personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie are reporting local Yuletide news. What’s to be done about Joe Bob Lipsey’s disastrous Christmas Carol pageant, a sabotaged yard-decorating contest and a mysterious phantom on the loose? With quick-change zaniness and quicksilver one-liners, two actors introduce the audience to 22 of the wildest citizens of one wacky town.

Alan Kopischke most recently appeared at TAP in May in The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey. He also directed Julius Caesar for UW-Green Bay, where he teaches acting, and he produces the annual Door Kinetic Arts Festival at Björklunden.

Noah Simon most recently appeared in A Trick of the Light at Peninsula Players. He’s spent most of his career on Chicago stages large and small, and he teaches theater at UW-Green Bay. 

A Tuna Christmas will run Dec. 12-31. Tickets are $30 per adult and $12 per student. TAP is also offering discounts for groups, and companies and organizations can schedule a private showing for 40 or more people. To learn more, visit
