Greater Tuna is set in the town of Tuna, Texas, the “third-smallest” town in the state, populated with many eccentric characters that come to life in this comedic show. The two-man production stars WCT veterans Gavin Drew and Preston T. Wright. Together they play a total of twenty different characters, male and female. Hilarity mounts as they quickly switch characters, costumes, and voices throughout the show.
Gavin Drew: Gavin has been performing in musicals since the age of five, and has performed in 20+ main stage musicals in this time. He placed first at the National Association of Teachers of Singing Competition, and was nominated for two Anthony Awards for his work onstage. Gavin spent the summer of 2015 studying with the New York Film Academy's musical theatre branch under the direction of Wicked's Kristy Cates. Gavin says that he feels at home playing the many characters of Tuna, Texas. "This who was a challenge I was definitely up for!"
Preston Wright: Preston started with Kim Mann at Pizzazz School of Performing Arts in Elementary School, then began a six year career with the Norwell Show Choirs through Middle School and High School. He has placed within the top rankings at many vocal competitions across Indiana and Ohio, claiming titles of "Grand Champion," "First Runner-Up,", and "Outstanding Male Soloist." Preston plays an active role in the Wells County Teen Court as a volunteer.
