Paramount Theatre and Visual Arts Center

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
