‘Greater Tuna’ Brings Grand Reopening for New Bern Civic Theatre

We have made it through one of the toughest times here at New Bern Civic Theatre (NBCT) and we are thrilled to announce our reopening in May with Greater Tuna, the theatre’s first live production since February 2020. Though we still have many challenges in the coming year, this two-man satirical comedy is our first step towards recovery. Please join us as we celebrate the grand reopening of live theatre in New Bern at New Bern Civic Theatre.

This reopening of the theatre is a long awaited moment for all of us here at NBCT and we are thrilled to open the doors and welcome our patrons back. This is the first step in moving together towards a better and brighter future for the arts in our community.  We look forward to seeing you in May for Greater Tuna! 

At NBCT, we take safety very seriously and use all necessary precautions to make sure the Athens Theatre is sanitized before and after all performances. Hand sanitizers are always available, and masks are still required. At this point, seating is limited per Governor Cooper’s Executive Order.

 Show dates: May 14, 15, 21, 22 @ 7:30pm   May 16, 23 @2pm 

Greater Tuna is a satirical comedy about a small town in Texas named Tuna, Texas’ third smallest town. The wacky inhabitants of this town — men, women, children and animals — are all played by two skillful, transformative actors who must change parts at a rather breakneck speed and use inventive voice work.

The day in Tuna, begins—as usual—with Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie at the microphones of a radio show, broadcasting at a big 275 watts (at least when they remember to turn the transmitter on). As the day wears on, Tuna’s citizens parade across the stage in all their outrageous and irreverent glory, commenting on life, politics, and what makes them (and sometimes us) tick. All these characters are played by two actors creating the entire population of Tuna in a “tour-de-farce” of quick-change artistry, changing costumes and characterizations faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote. Two actors, twenty characters, and a barrel of laughs, y’all.
