Product Description
Don't Hug Me County Fair is the hilarious summer sequel to the smash hit musicals Don't Hug Me, A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol and Don't Hug Me, I'm Pregnant.

It's a stand alone musical that doesn't require you to see the others in order to fully enjoy it.

It?'s county fair time in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, the biggest thing that?fs 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 Gunner?fs wife, Clara, decides she also wants to win Miss Walleye Queen, and when Gunner?fs 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

A Don't Hug Me County fair is the third musical comedy installment in the Don't Hug Me series. The original Don?ft Hug Me first opened in Los Angeles at The Whitefire Theatre in November 2003 to rave reviews and sold-out houses. Originally slated for a six week run, Don't Hug Me was extended by popular demand and was the longest running musical comedy in Los Angeles when it closed after six smash hit months. Don?ft Hug Me then moved to Minneapolis where it was slated for an eight week run. It ended up running for 9 smash hit months in Minneapolis.

Theatres across the country are breaking box office records with Don?ft Hug Me. Don't Hug Me is available for licensing thru Samuel French Publishers and is playing in cities all across the U.S. and Canada.

Theatres did so well with Don?ft Hug Me that the sequel was written, A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol, a hilarious spoof of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." Five theatres booked A Don?ft Hug Me Christmas Carol before it was even written. A Don?ft Hug Me Christmas Carol ran for 16 weeks in Los Angeles, one of the longest running Christmas shows in the country. A Don?ft Hug Me Christmas Carol was chosen Best Musical of the Year in Los Angeles by ReviewPlays.com and has broken box office records across the country. A Don?ft Hug Me Christmas Carol is also published by Samuel French.

The success of the first two Don't Hug Me musicals prompted Samuel French to request a summer sequel to the series and A Don?ft Hug Me County Fair was written. A Don't Hug Me County Fair had its World Premiere in Los Angeles in February, 2009, and was booked to play in 7 other cities before it was written.
