(Click here for a preview of FUN stuff)
Our season finale performance is sure to strike a familiar chord with our audiences. The stage is set in a quaint, local bar in Northern Minnesota where characters like Gunner, Kanute and the former Carnival Bunyan Queen gather for an evening of karaoke.
Wishing to escape the humdrum life in Bunyan Bay, local waitress Bernice, aspires to be a famous singer and escape to a more glamorous life. Her fiancée, Kanute, has other more domestic ideas for her!
With musical stylings like “I’m a Walleye Woman in a Crappie Town”, “My Smorgasbord of Love” and “I Wanna go to the Mall of America”, it’s no wonder this colorful, musical comedy has an impressive list of accolades including “Best Original Musical”, “Best Author Original Play”, “Best Director”, and “Best Ensemble Cast” from the Los Angelas Director Achievement Awards.
The Council for the Performing Arts is excited to offer this new and exciting performance on our stage and we hope you’ll bring the whole family to enjoy some singing and other stuff on our Jefferson, WI stage!!! We promise “Don’t Hug Me” will thaw those frozen toes and fingers away! As one reviewer “Up Nort” states: “Oh fer sittin” on the cat, it”s a dern good night out at the local bar.” – Canyon News
