LCT's 'A Tuna Christmas' sure to delight audiences
Director promises show will be absolute riot
The Lawton Community Theatre will perform "A Tuna Christmas," described by Albert Rivas, the show's director as "a satirical, slapstick comedy."
Rivas, who is also serving his first year as the president of the board for LCT, was surprised by the amount of people who showed up to audition for the show.
"It's usually done with two actors, but with the amount of auditions we had show up I went ahead and cast three," Rivas said. "Each actor plays multiple characters. Three actors makes it a lot easier for costume changes. These are different characters, different personalities. And they have to develop these characters for the show to work."
Among the cast is Scott Richard Klein, a local veteran of the stage who will be performing in his 90th play.
Also among the cast are two newcomers to the stage, Ashley Morrison and Wally Harris.
The play, which takes part over two acts, takes place in the small town of Tuna, Texas. The pride of this tiny town lies in their annual Christmas Yard Display Contest. But this year the mysterious Christmas Phantom has been ruining displays.
