A Tuna Christmas
Thursday, November 29 at 8:00pm — The Barrow Mansion — 83 Wayne Street, Jersey City, Nj 07302
Back by popular demand, "A TUNA CHRISTMAS" is a marathon Christmas comedy of southern madness. The Christmas yard display contest is heating up in the small town of Tuna, Texas as neighbor fights neighbor for the most outrageous display of lights, Santas, Baby Jesus' and Rudolphs. This year however, there is a Christmas Phantom on the loose, spreading vandalism and havoc. With quick-change zaniness and quicksilver one-liners, two incredibly talented actors introduce us to 22 of the wildest citizens in Tuna, Texas. J CITY Theater has produced A TUNA CHRISTMAS on and off for the past 14 years and it has become a not-to-be-missed holiday tradition. Having grown each year, it has now reached the level of outrageous spectacle. "This show is really our gift back to Jersey City", says Executive Producer Clay Cockrell. "We have a great time doing it and our audiences love coming each year. They've become so familiar with these wild characters that they are sometimes saying the lines before we do. All year long people ask us: ' Is Tuna coming back this Christmas?' People are planning their holiday travel around the performances! Maybe we should say it is a holiday addiction.”
