Last Saturday, the line was out the door at the Ice House in Berkeley Springs, with people waiting in line to buy tickets to the Tuna Christmas starring Tom Brooks and Chuck Walker.
Brooks and Walker portray twenty-two separate characters in this popular comedy about Christmas in the smallest town in Texas.
The play centers around the Tuna radio station OKKK and the two disc jockeys who broadcast the town news.
The audience next meets the main characters of the town – the main suspect in the Christmas Phantom business going on in town, the woman whose son is going to his first probation hearing and whose no-good husband has yet to call home, the young woman working at the local Tastee Kreme, the owner of the town’s used weapons store and her husband who frequently spots UFOs, a stray animal enthusiast who does his best to care for a large number of God’s creatures, the well-to-do winner of the Christmas yard display contest for the past 14 years.
There are four more performances of Tuna Christmas this weekend. Admission for the play is $10 for adults ($8 for MAC members) and $5 for students.
The Ice House is at the corner of Independence and Mercer Streets in downtown Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.
