Greater Tuna

Greater Tuna is a hilariously funny play being performed at the Gilmer Arts and Heritage (GAHA) in Ellijay, Georgia by the North Georgia Acting Company on April 19 – 22, 2012. This performance is about a group of citizens from the small town of Tuna, Texas. Watch as this entire satire on rural life is presented by only two performers. They depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna – the men, women, children, and even the animals.

Showtimes are 7 PM on April 19, 20, and 21, 2012 with matinees at 2 PM on April 21 and 22, 2012. Tickets are $15 per person. For more information, call 706-635-5605.
