Don’t Hug Me

a Minnesota love story with singin’ and stuff

It’s “Fargo” meets “The Music Man”
(without the blood or the trombones)

Don't Hug Me 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
