Company to Present Greater Tuna

On September 23 - 25 The Hudson River Shakespeare Company will present Greater Tuna by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard. The hilarious, two-man play is quite a departure from the company’s usual fare. Director, and one of “Tuna’s” two stars, Andy Daly, says “while it’s not Shakespeare, it does contain a lot of the same themes we see in Shakespeare’s plays. For example, there is both high, satirical humor as well as low comedy.” The play follows a day in the life of the inhabitants of Tuna, Texas and centers around radio station OKKK. Joining Andy on stage is veteran company member, Bruce Van Guilder. Each actor will play ten different characters. “It has been a great lesson on character development, not to mention how to change costumes really fast,” says Bruce.

Greater Tuna will be performed at the Hudson River Music Hall on Maple Street in Hudson Falls on Friday and Saturday, September 23 and 24 at 8 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, September 24 and 25 at 2 pm. Admission is $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and students.

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
