The Pewter Plough Playhouse rings in the holidays with “A Tuna Christmas,” a comedic, affectionate satire of small-town life and attitudes during Christmastime. Quick-changing actors Jonathan Shadrach and Jeff Walters remarkably play the entire cast of 22 eccentric characters from Tuna, Texas, both male and female of varying ages, involving a multitude of outlandish costumes.

It’s Christmas Eve in the third smallest town in Texas, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The local radio station personalities report that the town is abuzz with news of a mysterious “Christmas Phantom” vandalizing decorations.

Jill Turnbow directs. Preview night is Friday, Nov. 22.
