The surprise event of the entertainment season in Puerto Vallarta, just might be the delightful play, Greater Tuna, performed by Tracy Parks and Chaz Weathers. Currently back at The Palm Cabaret and Bar for it’s 3rd run this winter, audiences just can’t get enough of Greater Tuna’s humorous look at a small Texas town with it’s assortment of interesting characters.
Tracy and Chaz will have you laughing all the way through Greater Tuna as they portray 20 men, women, children and animals (with 42 costume changes). Tuna portrayed as the third-smallest town in Texas, co-stars with it’s quirky characters to amuse audiences. It’s a town where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. Who will be your favorite Tuna character? Maybe a radio host, a religious bigot, the gun store owner or the crooked judge? Or perhaps, it will be the racist sheriff or the fire and brimstone Baptist? All of these characters humorously, explore small town, Southwestern attitudes (of the past).
Greater Tuna is a big comedy about a small town, with small minds and big hearts. Written by Joe Sears, Jaston Williams and Ed Howard, the original production ran for more than 30 years all over the world and played two command performances for US Presidents in Washington, D.C.
Who knew that Tracy Parks, the manager of The Palm, would be such a talented actor and producer? ‘The proof is in the pudding,’ so to speak, and Tracy and his cohort, the equally talented Chaz Weathers are back by popular demand for another series of performances of Greater Tuna. Tracy and Chaz shine with their portrayal of the interesting characters of Tuna. Let them take you on a wild ride with the quirky characters of this small Texas town.
Tracy Parks and Chaz Weathers will continue to bring Greater Tuna to life at The Palm Cabaret and Bar until March 30th.
Don’t miss the play, that all of Puerto Vallarta have been talking about. The characters of Greater Tuna have something important to say to each of us.
