‘Tuna Does Vegas’ will run Feb. 21-23 at Prairie Arts Center

PRINCETON — The Prairie Arts Council will present “Tuna Does Vegas,” the first show of its 2020 season.

The show will run Friday, Feb. 21, through Sunday, Feb. 23. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday. All performances are at the Prairie Arts Center, 24 Park Ave. East in Princeton.

“Tuna Does Vegas” by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard is a sequel to last season’s “Greater Tuna.” The fun begins when radio host Arles Struvie announces on air that he and his wife, Bertha, are renewing their wedding vows in Vegas. The two-man cast portrays all of the inhabitants of Tuna — men, women, as well as Vegas showgirls and more. “Tuna Does Vegas” is presented by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals.

Josh Bush and Fox Weber, both of Princeton, are stars of the show, bringing to life the citizens of Tuna. Rex Bush and Beckett Conwell make guest appearances as Elvis impersonators. Additional voices are provided by Rex Bush, Beckett Connell, Emma Frost, Andy Marti, Jill Marti, Dixie Schroeder and Ken Schroeder. Theater veteran Dixie Schroeder of Princeton is the show’s director.

Tickets are $15 per person. Online ticket sales are available at www.prairiearts.org. For phone sales, call 815-875-2787 and leave a message. Walk-in tickets will also be available at the door.

Other shows in the PACs 2020 lineup include “Leaving Iowa” in late April, “Delval Divas” in late August and the annual children’s Christmas show. Prairie Arts Council programming is funded in part by grants from the Illinois Arts Council and Church Women United.

Persons interested in participating in the PAC theater program are encouraged to watch the PAC website, prairiearts.org, for audition dates and information on each show. Volunteers are always welcome for all parts of the productions.
