UW-River Falls toPresent "Greater Tuna"

The St. Croix Valley Summer Theatre will present "Greater Tuna" at the UW-River Falls Blanche Davis Theatre in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building July 22 -26 at 8 p.m.

"Greater Tuna," by Joel Sears, Jaston Williams and Ed Howard, tells the hilarious story of the third smallest town in Texas where the Lion's Club is too liberal and everyone idolizes Patsy Cline. Two actors portray all of the town’s inhabitants, including animals, men, women and children. Dean Gorden Hedahl of the College of Arts and Sciences will direct.

Sophomore Hope Yeager, a theatre major from River Falls, is in charge of promotions and publicity for the play. Junior Wayne Yeager, a theatre major from River Falls, is the shop foreman. Recent graduate John Stevens, a speech communications major from Columbia Heights, Minn., sophomore Peter Potyondy, a social studies major from Woodbury, Minn., and senior Jeremy L. Maybrey, a speech communications major from Blaine, Minn., are working in the scene shop.

The St. Croix Valley Summer Theatre Box Office, located in the Kleinpell Fine Arts Building on campus, is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It also opens one hour before each performance. Prices range from $8-$12. For more information, call 715/425-3114 or 800/228-5423.
