The Ruston Cultural District (RCD) is proud to present A Tuna Christmas with B&B Theatre at the Norton Building on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 7pm. $10 tickets are available at  the door. A Tuna Christmas, produced in association with Samuel Frenchis a hilarious sequel to Greater Tuna, by Ed Howard, Jaston Williams, and Joe Sears, telling tales from the “third smallest town in Texas” – the fictional Tuna – through the airwaves of radio station OKKK. Directed by Mary Fran Crook, and starring Joel Sharpton and Paul B. Crook as Arles Struvie and Thurston Wheelis, guests will get all the holiday news from Tuna, including the annual lawn display contest and townsfolk who haven’t paid their electric bills.

Basket & Beverage (B&B) Theatre is a professional theatre serving North Central Louisiana. Their goal is to provide relaxed, enjoyable, and quality entertainment for audiences. Patrons may bring a picnic basket and beverages (hence, the name!) and enjoy an evening of fun. B&B and the Ruston Cultural District also wish to help stock DART’s shelves for the winter, so guests are also encouraged to bring canned food items as a donation. $10 tickets are available at the door. Doors open at 6:30; show starts at 7pm. The Norton Building is located at 207 West Mississippi in historic downtown Ruston’s Cultural District.
