Baldwin Players Announce Cast for ‘Greater Tuna’

October 10, 2017

Cast members have been selected for “Greater Tuna,” the Baldwin Players’ upcoming fall production at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

Dr. Brian Ray, director for the theatre troupe, said “Greater Tuna” will be staged in Howard Auditorium at 7 p.m. on Oct. 26-28. Admission is free to ABAC students, faculty, and staff.  Tickets for the public are $10 each.

“Greater Tuna” is the first in a series of four comedic plays set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the “third-smallest” town in the state. The play is an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of the same.

R. Snavely, Ty Gore as Reverend Spikes and Hank Bumiller, Angel Rewis as Coach Raymond Chassie, and Luke Hillman as Sheriff Givens.  The production will also include a dog in the role of Yippie.
