for our annual Pantomime production. “Panto” is a play, usually a folk tale, told in song, dance and dialogue.
(For more see www.britishplayers.org) It includes buffoonery, jokes, gags, and mild innuendo.
It is suitable for all ages, both on stage and in the audience and is extremely popular in its native Britain.
Men, women, boys and girls of all ages are invited to attend OPEN auditions, for this year’s production “Beauty and The Beast”,

A Tuna Christmas
by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard.
It's Christmas in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies!
Radio station OKKK news personalities, Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie, report on various Yuletide activities.
It's 24 hours before Christmas and the delightfully eccentric characters of Tuna attempt to cope with seasonal traumas
such as the disaster-prone little theatre production of A Christmas Carol,
and a yard-decorating contest being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom.
