Tuna Does Vegas re-unites the lovable and eccentric characters from the “third smallest town in Texas” as they take a rambling romp in Sin City. The hilarity begins when oddball-conservative radio host Arles Struvie announces on air that he and his wife Bertha Bumiller are heading to Vegas to renew their wedding vows…but everyone in Tuna, Texas goes along for the ride! Tuna Does Vegas features the favorite characters from the award-winning Greater Tuna productions with some new characters too!


Lance Duddlesten previously directed Red, White and Tuna at Albany Civic Theater.
