Auditions for Don't Hug Me!

Lanesboro Community Theater announces auditions for the hilarious musical comedy "Don't Hug Me" April 11 and 12 from 6:30 until 8 at the Lanesboro Community Center. Director Rita Dalzell will be looking for two women and three men. No preparation is necessary. Performances are June 22 - July1.

What is Don't Hug Me? It's Fargo meets The Music Man (without the blood or the trombones).

Oh, for cryin’ in yer snow shoes! It’s the coldest day of the year in Bunyan Bay when a slick karaoke salesman arrives at the bar and turns the locals’ lives upside down. With its over the top songs and crazy characters, this “Minnesota love story with singin’ and stuff” will have you laughing until the spring thaw!

Don't Hug Me takes place in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota. Cantankerous bar owner, Gunner Johnson, wants to sell the business and move to 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, and when a fast-talking salesman, Aarvid Gisselsen, promises to bring romance into their lives through the 'magic' of karaoke, all heck breaks loose!

Featuring the songs, "I'm a Walleye Woman in a Crappie Town," "My Smorgasbord of Love," and "I Wanna Go to the Mall of America."
