Greater Tuna Auditions at Theatre Coppell


A map of Texas, a microphone, and the text: Greater Tuna by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard

Greater Tuna

By Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard

July 26 – August 11, 2024


Greater Tuna is a comedy about a small town named Tuna, Texas's third-smallest

town. The wacky inhabitants of this town -- men, women, children and animals -- are

all played by two skillful, transformative actors who must change parts at a rather

breakneck speed and use inventive voicework. Two actors, 20 characters, and a

barrel of laughs.

Director: Janis Arthur

Assistant Director: Ann White
