A Don’t Hug Me Christmas Carol

Bar owner Gunner Johnson plays the role of the holiday humbugger in A Don’t Hug Me Christmas Carol, a Minnesota-flavored musical update of Dickens’s classic fable. While his wife Clara strings the tree and belts out soon-to-be-household carols such as “Gramma Cut the Christmas Cheese,” Gunner has nothing to add except a bit of musical criticism: “That song is worse than ‘Gramma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.’ At least that one has a positive message.” Faced with a cheery Christmas spent with his friends and family, Gunner decides to take his snowmobile for a spin instead—and ends up plunging through the frozen lake and into a coma (“Gunner Fell Into an Ice Hole”). In his dream, he receives a visit from Norwegian folk hero Sven Yorgensen, who curates a tour of Christmases Past, Present, and Future. Written by playwrights and native Edinans Paul and Phil Olson, the 17-song soundtrack features originals in all styles, such as the country-rock lament “The Wheel is Turnin’ But the Hamster is Dead” and the sultry, jazzy “I’d Rather Be Naughty.”

New Century Theatre

First opened in 1908, the New Century Theatre has played many roles throughout its history. Originally known as the Miles, the building began as an art-deco vaudeville house and in the 1920s transformed into a state-of-the-art movie theater after a comprehensive renovation. Renamed The Century Cinerama in the mid-‘50s, the theater boasted a reputation as a tourist attraction rivaling the State Fair, but the ‘60s brought plummeting ticket sales, and, in 1965, a devastating fire. Today, the site is home to a freshly rebuilt, multifunctional performance venue, great for musical theater, educational presentations, and public shamings.
