Consider bringing your group to The Rio Theatre in Helper, Utah, to see an exciting professional performance of “Greater Tuna,” a hilarious comedy about the third-smallest town in Texas, where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies.
The eclectic band of citizens that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna—men, women, children and animals. This long-running play has been performed all over the U.S. to record-breaking audiences and will be performed at The Rio Theatre on Dec. 9-12, and 16-19 at 7:30 p.m. The Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m.
Adult groups of 10 or more will save $6 off regular box office adult ticket price of $18. For only $12, groups will receive the very best seats available by reserving in advance before tickets go on sale to the general public.
Thinking of a holiday gift for your company employees? Buy a block of tickets for a performance and give them away as a bonus for a job well done. It’s an inexpensive way to give the gift of theatre.
