The production kicks off the theater’s 45th season with lots of fun from the fictional town of Tuna – the third-smallest town in Texas – with Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie at the microphones of Radio OKKK, broadcasting at a big 275 watts (when they remember to turn the transmitter on).
The winning entry in the American Heritage essay contest is the big story of the day. Then Didi Snavely, of Didi’s Used Guns, arrives, followed by weatherman Harold Dean Lattimer, who warns of an incoming swarm of locusts but is doubtful they’ll ever make it as far as Tuna. And the laughs keep coming when Petey Fisk from the Humane Society stops by to talk about the town’s problem with ducks.
Tuna’s eclectic citizens (played by funnymen Eddie Curry and Jeff Stockberger) continue to take the stage in all their outrageous and irreverent glory, commenting on life, politics and what makes them tick.
