Laughter on the 23rd Floor

Playwright Neil Simon got his first big break in the early '50s as a staff writer on Sid Caesar's fabled television series Your Show of Shows, and this comedy takes a fictionalized look at the backstage chaos that went into producing one of the landmarks of television's golden age.

A Tuna Christmas

By:  Ed Howard, Joe Sears, Jaston Williams
In this hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, it's Christmas in the third smallest town in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities, including hot competition in the annual lawn display contest. In other news, voracious Joe Bob Lipsey's production of "A Christmas Carol" is jeopardized by unpaid electric bills. Many colorful Tuna denizens, some you will recognize from Greater Tuna and some appearing here for the first time, join in the holiday fun.  Audiences who have and who have not seen Greater Tuna will enjoy this laugh filled evening.

Here by popular demand is the sequel to Play on!. The gang is joined by Phyllis's song-writing nephew Monte when dire circumstances - their theatre in in peril - force them to do yet another show by Phyllis. The intrepid thepians know disaster will probably result.  If you missed Play On!, don't worry....this show stands (or falls) on it's own!!!!
