X*ACT Auditions: Tuna Christmas by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard

Directed by Russ Dern

Location: X*ACT, 45 E. Second Street, Xenia, OH 45385

Audition schedule: October 3-4, 7:00-9:00 or by appointment.  Auditions are cold reads from the script, no preparation required. 

Performances: December 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11

This comedy pokes fun at family relationships at Christmas time in small-town Tuna, Texas, circa 1980.  The roles are a reprise of Greater Tuna. 

The roles are relatively small, so each actor will play two parts.  Scripts must be memorized, aside from scripted radio broadcasts, which may be read by four of the characters; most of the lines are conversation.  There is some swearing, but no F-bombs.  Although this was originally performed with two male actors playing all the parts, I am planning to use 5 women and 6 men.
