by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, & Ed Howard
Greater Tuna is the first in a series of 4 comedic plays, each set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas, the "third-smallest" town in the state. Written by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard, the play is at once an affectionate comment on small-town, Southern life and attitudes but also a withering satire of same. The play is unique in that two men play the entire cast of over twenty eccentric characters of both genders and various ages.

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown!
Book, Music & Lyrics by CLARK GESNER
Based on the Comic Strip "PEANUTS" by Charles M. Shulz
Though considered a "good man" by his friends, Charlie Brown can't seem to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl, nor his friend Lucy, her crush, the piano-playing Schroeder. Meanwhile Snoopy and Linus daydream and the rest of the friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings before finally coming to realize what makes them truly happy.
