Though it takes an entire village to raise a baby into adulthood, it only takes two adults to portray an entire village. As the comedic high jinks of A Tuna Christmas unfold, actors Scott Jorgenson and Peter Simmons step in the roles of all 24 residents of Tuna, the “third smallest” town in Texas. Leading up to the town’s annual Christmas Yard Display Contest, panic takes over the neighborhood when a phantom begins sabotaging everyone’s yard decorations. And to make matters worse, the town’s annually ill-fated production of A Christmas Carol is once again proving that it's forever doomed. As costumes fly and the actors switch characters in an instant, the show gleefully aims at audience’s funny bones with its irreverent take on small-town sensibilities and the holiday season.
Actors Theater of Minnesota
Although it’s known for comedies such as the two-man, 24-character A Tuna Christmas, Actors Theater of Minnesota also places a significant emphasis on education and corporate training. At The Creative Institute, the ensemble trains students how to work theatrical media such as improv and writing into their everyday problem-solving skills.
