THE LYCEUM THEATRE PRESENTS
A Lyceum Favorite, Greater Tuna

ARROW ROCK, MO – Stop in and experience the fictional town of Tuna, the “third-smallest” town in Texas, with GREATER TUNA performing August 19 through August 26, 2017 at the Lyceum Theatre. This hilarious satire of small town life was written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard.

Greater Tuna is the hilarious comedy about Texas’ third smallest town, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. What do Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Didi Snavely, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Rev. Spikes, and Vera Carp have in common? Thanks to some quick-changing wizardry, the eclectic band of citizens are portrayed by only two actors, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, children and animals. This affectionate send-up of small-town life will have your rolling in the aisles!

Michael Rothhaar returns to the Lyceum to direct Greater Tuna. The production features Whit Reichert playing the characters of Thurston Wheelis, Bertha Bumiller, Yippy, Leonard Childers, Pearl Burras, R. R. Snavely, Rev. Spikes, Sheriff Givens and Hank Bumiller. Jeff Stockberger plays the characters of Arles Struvie, Didi Snavely, Harold Dean Lattimer, Petey Fisk, Jody Bumiller, Stanley Bumiller, Charlene Bumiller, Chad Hartford, Phinas Blye and Vera Carp.

Whit Reichert returns to The Lyceum as half the townspeople in Greater Tuna. Last season at the Lyceum, Whit appeared in four shows, most notably, as Ben Franklin in 1776. Other favorite Lyceum roles include J. B. Biggley in How To Succeed…, George Macmillan in Big, The Musical, Osgood Feilding in Sugar, Max in The Sound of Music, Grandpa in Meet Me In St. Louis, the Wizard in The Wizard Of Oz and Al Lewis in The Sunshine Boys. Whit has worked all over the country, but those familiar with St. Louis theatre may recognize him from productions at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, The Shakespeare Festival, Stages, The Muny, St. Louis Actors’ Theatre, The Black Rep and The Variety Club Theatre.

Making his Lyceum debut, Jeff Stockberger plays the other half of Tuna’s residents. Originally from St. Louis, Jeff is now a resident of Indianapolis Indiana and a regular performer at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre.
