Jason Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard authored the play, the second of four set in the fictional town of Tuna, Texas.

It’s now Christmas in the “third smallest town” in Texas. Radio station OKKK news personalities Thelma Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on all sorts of small town Yuletide activities — including hot competition in the annual Christmas yard display contest, a mysterious Christmas phantom, and controversy surrounding the staging of "A Christmas Carol." Many colorful Tuna characters join in the holiday fun.  

This CPP show features Larry Gilbert as Arles Struvie, Ruth Simon as Bertha Bumiller and Christy Oliver as Thelma Wheelis. Also appearing are Abbie Cleveringa, Jacob Nelson, Marva Netherland, Kate Rutherford, Marilisa Sachteleben, Alivia Schmidt, Dawn Zuidema and newcomer Graham Reid as Petey Fisk. Directing is Bruce Baker, the assistant director is Shari Miranda and Lee Scheibach is the producer.
