Indian Valley Theatre opens ‘Don’t Hug Me’ next weekend

Indian Valley Theatre will present the musical comedy “Don’t Hug Me” on Feb. 24 through 26 at the Sandwich Opera House.

The show is directed by Sharon Pagoria and Matthew Johnson and written by Phil and Paul Olson.

“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 a former Winter Carnival Bunyan Queen, wants to stay. Bernice Lundstrom, the pretty waitress, wants to pursue a singing career. Her fiancé, 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.

The musical comedy features the songs, “I’m a Walleye Woman in a Crappie Town,” “My Smorgasbord of Love,” “Upside Down in My Pickup Truck,” and “I Wanna Go to the Mall of America.”

Performances of “Don’t Hug Me” will be at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 24 and 25 and 2 p.m. Feb. 26 at the historic Sandwich Opera House, 140 E. Railroad St. in Sandwich. Tickets cost $15 each and can be purchased online, at the Sandwich Opera House or at the door.
