Elizabeth Reinholz Theatre, Beloit Memorial High School, 1225 Fourth St, Beloit

Greater Tuna...What do Arles Stuvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye and Rev. Spikes have in common?  In this hilarious send-up of small town mores and morals, they are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas.  This long-running off-Broadway hit features two actors creating the entire population of Tuna in tour-de-force of quick change artistry, changing costumes and characters faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote.  It is an evening with two actors, twenty characters, 48 costume changes, and a barrel of laughs, y'all.
