Minneapolis, MN, November 06, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- "A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol," one of the most popular holiday shows in Minneapolis for the past 8 years, is a hilarious Minnesota spoof of Charles Dickens' classic story, "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, tells her he's skipping Christmas, he storms out of the bar, goes snowmobiling across the lake, falls through the ice, 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 very different.
Featuring 17 original songs including: Gunner Fell Into an Ice Hole, The Wheel is Turnin' but the Hamster is Dead, I Love You More Than Football, Grandma Cut the Christmas Cheese, and more.
