Set in early 19th-century France, it is the story of Jean Valjean, a French peasant, and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his starving sister's child. Valjean decides to break his parole and start his life anew after a kindly bishop inspires him by a tremendous act of mercy, but he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert.

You will work with professional musicians including Jeff Engholm, Mark Hasbrouck, Mitchell Johnson and Jeff and Tommy Vee to learn how to work together as a band, break down a song, learn individual parts and put it altogether to create a performance you won’t forget.

This camp is open to guitarists, bassists, drummers, keyboardists, and string and horn players. Vocalists who are comfortable performing as soloists are welcome to enroll without an instrument. Rockers must have one year experience on their instrument and bring own instruments/ equipment each day to the camp (keyboards will be provided).
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! When registering, please indicate which instrument you play, or if you are a vocalist. As communication is predominantly email, please include an email address.

The Original Don’t Hug Me is Back!! Back at The Paramount for 3 performances only!
It’s the first of four Don’t Hug Me musical comedies that have played in over 100 cities around North America.
Don’t Hug Me is a Minnesota love story with singin’ and stuff. It’s “Fargo” meets “The Music Man” (without the blood or the trombones).
The story takes place in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota. It’s the coldest day of the year and cantankerous bar owner Gunner Johnson wants to sell the business and move to sunny Florida. Clara, his wife and former Winter Carnival Bunyan Queen, wants to stay. Bernice Lundstrom, the pretty waitress, wants to pursue a singing career. Her fiance, Kanute Gunderson, wants her to stay home. It’s a battle of wills that tests their relationships and when a fast-talking salesman, Aarvid Gisselsen, promises to solve their problems and bring romance into their lives through the ‘magic’ of karaoke, all heck breaks loose!
_*Featuring 16 original songs, including:*_
I’m a Walleye Woman in a Crappie Town
My Smorgasbord of Love
I Wanna go to the Mall of America
The Bunyan Yodel
He Wore a Purple Tux
Upside Down in my Pickup Truck
