A funny sendup of small-town morals, the long-running off-Broadway comedy "Greater Tuna" takes place in the fictional city of Tuna, the "third-smallest" town in Texas -- the kind of place where the Lions Club is considered too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. You'll meet the town's eccentric citizens, including the Bumillers, puppy-poisoning Aunt Pearl, the longwinded Reverend Spikes, good ol' Vera Carp and many more. Created more than 30 years ago as a party skit based on a political cartoon, "Greater Tuna"'s popularity has endured, spawning countless tours, several sequels and even an HBO special. Now you can see it in a production from The Grand at Galveston Island. And as a special treat, each performance will be followed by a Q&A with director Jaston Williams that's bound to be as entertaining as the show itself. [less-]

Imagine seeing the scales on a snake that's millions of years old, the veins of a leaf that fell centuries ago, the eight many-jointed legs of a mite. And are those feathers from dinosaurs? Or birds from the Cretaceous age? At "Amber Secrets, Feathers from the Age of Dinosaurs", you'll see all and then decide for yourself. Except in the rarest cases, the fossilization process is not a gentle one -- it favors the largest and most durable. Delicate or small things are "forgotten" by the process. But amber served as a natural sticky trap for capturing a portion of the ecosystem that could not be preserved in such detail in any other manner. This exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science features over 100 of some of the most exquisite specimens dating as far back as 99 million years ago, including such highlights as feathers and lizards. Each polished translucent gem provides a window to the time of the dinosaurs. [less-]

It's no surprise that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck became movie stars after showing off their acting skills in "Good Will Hunting".
