Tuna Does Vegas

Tuna Does Vegas


Directed by Daniel Mainwaring


Starring Gaye Gandy & Trish Keller


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! Written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard.
Tuna Does Vegas festures the favorite characters from the award-winning Greater Tuna productions with some new characters too!
