In fact, earlier this year year the duo starred in “Tuna Does Vegas” at Interplayers Professional Theatre.

Now, they’re teaming up to bring the original “Greater Tuna” back to Interplayers’ stage this summer, in a production co-directed by Treadway and Interplayers Artistic Director Reed McColm.

Treadway and Weaver each will play 10 of the townsfolk in this quick-change comedy that has delighted Spokane audiences for years.
