The Many Faces of Greater Tuna

Filed under: Back Stage Blog — admin @ 12:00 am

Veteran actors Brian Bogstad Victor Clark play all 21 citizens of Tuna, Texas (the 2nd smallest town in Texas.) They play the men, women, children, teenagers —even dogs! Tonight at rehearsal the actors got their costumes for the first times and began working thru the quick changes for act one. Brian and Vic were joined by Jake Pensmith, Taylor Wentworth, Aidan White and Erin Cary who served as dressers backstage helping the actors into wigs, dresses, hats, pants, shoes, even jewelry. Below are six of the many faces of Tuna . . . Petey Fisk( Brian), Bertha Bumiller (Vic), Rev. Spikes (Vic), Arles Struvie (Brian), Vera Carp (Brian) and Thurston Wheelis (Vic)tunamontage5web.jpg For the past three weeks Brian and Vic have been creating voices, characters walks and posture and already their characters were beginning to develop but tonight, with the addition of costumes they really came to life. Our resident costumer, Barbara Young has really outdone herself. Now the fun begins, we’re beginning a runthru of act one with more than a dozen full changes in the course of the act, some of which must take place in less than 30 seconds!

Julian Wiles, Director for Greater Tuna
