What It's About
Sweet, funny, and sometimes sung, Little Tunes is a comic memoir of growing up in an eccentric ’70s family, misadventures in a musical education, and finding out what happens after a dream dissolves.
About Ned Averill-Snell
“…is a fine actor and a literate, thoughtful playwright… a terrific performer and a writer with an eye on what’s tragic in popular culture.” – Mark E. Leib, Theatre Critic, Creative Loafing
“…can really act… can really write. His writing, like his acting, is controlled and witty. Every effect is thought out, from the silliest comedy to the most heart-wrenching biography.” Peter Smith, The St. Petersburg Times
“…is an admirable actor with a comic range and an agile intensity.” Joanne Milani, The Tampa Tribune
