About this show

A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol is the sequel to the smash hit musical comedy, Don't Hug Me. The original Don't Hug Me won four ADA Awards including Best Original Musical, and has been booked in over 35 cities since it opened in 2003. It's Fargo meets A Christmas Carol (without the wood chipper or the Cratchits). A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol takes place in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, on Christmas Eve. Cantankerous bar owner Gunner Johnson gets in an argument with his wife, Clara, tells her he's skipping Christmas, storms out, goes snowmobiling across the lake, falls through the ice on his skidoo and goes into a coma. He then comes back in his dream where he's visited by the 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 very different. Will Gunner come out of his coma and find redemption with Clara at The Bunyan? Find out. Featuring 17 original songs including "The Christmas Cheese Polka," "It's Christmas Time so Please Give Me Some," "The Wheel is Turnin' but the Hamster is Dead," "I Love You More Than Football," "Gunner Fell Into an Ice Hole," and "I'm so Hosed."
