A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol, part of the award-winning Don't Hug Me musical series, entrances audiences for the fifth year in a row with a Minnesota-centric spoof on Dickens' beloved holiday classic. The holiday tale centers on Gunner Johnson, a bar owner whose snowmobile accident leaves him in a coma and vulnerable to infection by narrative twists, including a Scrooge-like journey through his past. The kooky cast of characters includes a singer looking to make it in the big city, a smooth spirit named Sven, and Gunner's wife Clara.

Throughout the show, 17 off-kilter holiday tunes shot through with bawdy humor, such as "It's Christmas Time so Come Give Me Some," stand in for the classics and "bring smiles to the audiences' faces," according to the St. Cloud Times. The New Century Theatre plays host to all performances and proffers a black-box setting that provides intimate yet widescreen views of the holiday-themed hijinks and the backs of strangers' heads.

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.
