A Don't Hug Me County Fair About
A Don't Hug Me County Fair
A Don't Hug Me County Fair is the hilarious summer sequel to the
smash hit musicals Don't Hug Me and A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol.
It's a stand alone musical that doesn't require you to see the others in
order to fully enjoy it.
Itís county fair time in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, the biggest
thing thatís happened since the winter carnival snowplow parade.
This year the Bunyan County Fair means two things to Gunner and
Clara Johnson, owners of a little bar called The Bunyan; The big
County Fair Fishing Contest and The Miss Walleye Queen Competition.
Bernice, the pretty waitress, sees this as her big chance to win
Miss Walleye Queen, to be discovered, and more important,
to have her face carved in butter at the Minnesota State Fair.
The trouble begins when Gunnerís wife, Clara, decides she also
wants to win Miss Walleye Queen, and when Gunnerís estranged
twin sister, Trigger, shows up to try to win the beauty pageant,
things get ugly.
Featuring 18 original songs including:
Our Butter Face Queen
● Pontoon Ladies
I'm Just a Pretty Forest Ranger
● My Campfire is Burnin' For You
● If I Could Win Miss Walleye Queen
● I'm a Bunyan Woman
