Deer Camp-The Musical (Sept. 14-30, 2012) is the lighthearted Minnesotan comedy tracking the escapades of four lifelong buddies finally given the ultimatum by their wives to bring home a deer from Deer Camp. Starring Tony Papenfuss and John Voldstad, best known for their roles as My Brother Darryl and My Other Brother Darryl in the '80s CBS sitcom "Newhart," this blaze orange-tinged musical features songs such as "River of Brew" and "Grunt Horn Song" and also includes veteran Twin Cities actors John Kunik and Anthony Zandra.
2 Sugars, Room for Cream (Oct. 11-Nov. 11, 2012), the "must-see" hit comedy revival from the 2009 Fringe Festival, stars Shanan Custer, the lauded Brave New Workshop veteran who will host the Ivey Awards this fall, and Carolyn Pool, an Ivey Award-winning actress. This quirky showcase of funny, sometimes serious, vignettes mixed with music, mines the humor of everyday life that flows with coffee.
A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol (Nov. 23-Dec. 31, 2012), the hilarious Minnesota spoof of the Charles Dickens classic, returns by popular demand after selling out every show the last five Decembers. With 17 original songs including "Gunner Fell Into an Ice Hole" and "The Wheel is Turnin' but the Hamster is Dead," it features Sven Yorgensen taking cantankerous bar owner Gunner Johnson on a journey similar to that in "A Christmas Carol," only very different.
