Theater: A Don’t Hug Me Christmas Carol

A hilarious Minnesota spoof of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. It’s Christmas Eve in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, and cantankerous bar owner, Gunner Johnson, gets in an argument with his wife, Clara, and tells her he’s skipping Christmas. He storms out of the bar, goes snowmobiling across the lake, falls through the ice on his Ski-Doo and goes into a coma. He comes back in his dream where he’s visited by folk legend, Sven Yorgensen, who plays the ghost of Christmas past, present and future. Sven takes Gunner (Scrooge) on a journey similar to that in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, only Minnesota-style. Will Gunner come out of his coma and find redemption with Clara at The Bunyan? Find out. Tickets: $20 members, $25 non-members, $15 students, available at the box office or at
