    Two Springer favorites continue this year what has become a holiday tradition for residents of the Chattahoochee Valley.Actors and comedians Jim Pharr and Ben Redding star in the Springer's 2017 production of "A Tuna Christmas." Pharr and Redding play all 24 citizens of Tuna, Texas, a fictional Texas town that struggles each year with a disastrous production of “A Christmas Carol,” has yard displays vandalized by a mysterious Christmas Phantom, and has a Humane Society filled with iguanas, coyotes, sheep and myna birds. An estimated 60,000 patrons have seen "A Tuna Christmas" at the Springer through the years. This year's run kicks off December 14.
