Local theater production company and Harrison Ruritans partner for dinner show

Ed Huckabee and JC Smith are in "Greater Tuna."

Even if you've never been to Texas, the themes in "Greater Tuna," a play set in the Lone Star State's fictitious third-smallest town, will feel familiar.

"It's a straightforward Southern comedy - a backwoods, homebred Southern comedy in its finest," said JC Smith, executive director of Closed Door Entertainment, which is partnering with the Harrison Ruritan Club for the upcoming production.

Being shown Nov. 3 and 4 at the clubhouse, the show includes dinner catered by Elegant Moments Catering.

It also includes a belly full of laughs.

"Our first read-through, we got through it, but what is ordinarily an hour and 45 minutes took us more than two hours because we kept laughing," Smith said.

The show is a satire, filled with characters like the Reverend Spikes, president of the Smut Snatchers of the New Order, and Phinas Blye, who runs for city council every election.
