What's Happening in Saugatuck and Douglas this weekend!

What's happening the next few days in Sunny Douglas and Saugatuck

August 23-24, 7:30
Red Barn Theatre

Musical Play: Don't Hug Me. It's a love story. It's Fargo meets The Music Man (without the blood or all those trombones). The story takes place in a colorful, rustic north woods bar in tiny Bunyan Bay, Minnesota. It's the coldest day of the year and cantankerous bar owner Gunner Johnson wants to sell the business and move to sunny 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 that tests their relationships and when a fast-talking salesman, Aarvid Gisselsen, promises to solve their problems and bring romance into their lives through the 'magic' of karaoke, all heck breaks loose! Admission is $20 for Adults, $15 for seniors, Students and members of the Lakeshore Arts Alliance with a special group rate of $12 per ticket for groups of six or more. The Red Barn is located at 3657 63rd St. at Blue Star Hwy. Saugatuck, about a quarter mile east of Exit 41 off of I-196. For more information call (269) 857-5300.
