A Tuna Christmas

The second of four Tuna plays written by Ed Howard, Jaston Williams, and Joe Sears, A Tuna Christmas tells the story of a town full of eccentrics pushed even further to the edge by a “Christmas Phantom” responsible for vandalizing competitive yard displays. With constantly changing voices, costumes, and props, Jason Roman and Avery Callaway star as all 22 of the town’s residents.

A Tuna Christmas will run for two weekends only: Nov. 16-18 and Nov. 30-Dec. 2. Performances will not be held the weekend after Thanksgiving. Location for all shows is the Francois Fine Art Building’s Studio Theatre located on Sul Ross State University’s Alpine campus. Friday and Saturday curtain times are 8:15 p.m. Sunday matinee performances will be held at 2 p.m..  Advanced tickets may be purchased via 
Please call (432) 837-8218 for reserved seating or for more information.

The theatre program at Sul Ross is guided by the philosophy that students will graduate with a university - level understanding of theatrical production.  It is driven by a passionate team of professors and students who create an inviting and engaging environment for learning the craft.

Sul Ross offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Theatre and a Minor in Theatre. Even if they've never set foot on a stage before, students are welcomed and immersed in all aspects of theatre, everything from writing plays to directing to the many details of production and even the promotion surrounding the performance.



Their skills are finely tuned and they are offered opportunities that wouldn't be as accessible at many other schools' programs. Sul Ross puts on a number of productions throughout the year with four key areas in mind: playwriting, musical theatre, bilingual theatre, and children's theatre.   Students learn the art of playwriting and take on the process of developing original works from script to stage. 





Sul Ross Theatre also teaches the value of working across programs to produce musical theatre and expanding a student's repertoire to the particulars of children's theatre. The emerging Latino Theatre Program has brought a national focus to Sul Ross.  Recently, the Sul Ross original production of Moises: A Modern-Day Tragedy by resident playwright, Liz Coronado Castillo, was invited to perform at the Region VI Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in San Angelo, TX.    Off Campus, the program is also very involved with the local community of Alpine, Texas and produces the Theatre of the Big Bend, a series of outdoor repertory performances through the summer against the beautiful backdrop of Far West Texas.
