DHM Productions Presents the Plainview Premiere of A Don't Hug Me County Fair, Award-Winning Musical Comedy, Opening Sept. 16 at the Jon Hassler Theater
From Los Angeles, A Don’t Hug Me County Fair is the award-winning summer sequel to the musical comedies Don't Hug Me and A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol, that have both played at the Hassler. The Don’t Hug Me musicals have played in over 100 cities around the U.S. and Canada.
A Don't Hug Me County Fair won Best Author Original Musical at the Los Angeles Artistic Director Achievement Award.
It's county fair time in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, which means one thing to Gunner and Clara Johnson, owners of a little bar called The Bunyan; The Miss Walleye Queen Competition. Bernice, the pretty waitress, sees this as her big chance to win Miss Walleye Queen, to be discovered, and more important, to have her face carved in butter at the State Fair. The trouble begins when Gunner's wife, Clara, decides she also wants to win Miss Walleye Queen, and when Gunner's estranged twin sister, Trigger, shows up to try to win the beauty pageant, things get ugly.
Featuring 19 original songs including:
● Our Butter Face Queen
● Pontoon Ladies
● I'm Just a Pretty Forest Ranger
● My Campfire is Burnin' For You
● I'm a Bunyan Woman
