About A Tuna Christmas 2023

The search for holiday cheer and traditions can soon end with A Tuna Christmas 2023 in Columbus, a community favorite and true holiday cult classic. Perhaps you are one of the more than 45,000 people who have seen it before.

Or maybe you’ve never heard of A Tuna Christmas. Either way, this hilarious quick-change comedy is coming to town. So, make your plans to see it again or for the first time ever!

More about the show

In case you aren’t familiar with A Tuna Christmas, it’s set in the third-smallest city in Texas, a place called Tuna. The story is centered around Tuna’s annual Christmas Yard Display Contest. As it turns out, Vera Carp, the town snob, has won the contest for the last 14 years in a row.

But, alas, there’s trouble around town when the displays begin to be sabotaged by a mysterious “Christmas Phantom,” which might lead to a ruined competition! Meanwhile, other Tuna residents experience unique challenges of their own, including Joe Bob Lipsey’s struggles to produce a good rendition of A Christmas Carol.

Mix in all the antics, UFO abductions and a love story, and you have A Tuna Christmas—a heartwarming, funny story about life in a small Southern town.

Did we mention the entire cast of off-the-wall characters is portrayed by two male actors? In fact, this year’s performance stars Ned Bridges and Paul Pierce in his farewell performance.
