MERIDIAN —     Meridian Little Theatre’s first- ever fund raiser dinner theater will be presented at 6 p.m. March 20-22 and at noon March 23 in the Davidson Room at MLT.

    "The uproariously funny play, Greater Tuna, features seasoned MLT actors Derek Pouncey, Scott Farmer and Zena Limerick," an MLT press release states. "Each actor will portray both the male and female citizens of Tuna, the second smallest town in Texas, as this fast paced farce satirizes small Texas town life."

    Prepared by Pretty Presentations, the family style dinner features several dishes named after characters in the play: Texas Beef Brisket, Aunt Pearl’s Scalloped Potatoes, Phineas Blye Baked Beans, Good Ole’ Green Beans, Reverend Spike’s Cole Slaw, Struvie’s Green Salad, A Wheel of Thurston’s Cornbread (Jalapeño Cornbread served in Black Skillets) and “It Will, It Will, It Will Knock your Socks Off” Banana Pudding, served in 4 ounce mason jars. And of course, sweet tea.

    Tickets for the dinner/show are $40 per person and include two beverages of your choice. Call MLT at 601-482-6371 for tickets and table selection.
