Embracing Our Roots

Don’t Hug Me, We’re Family enthralls audiences at Hudson’s Off Broadway Dinner Theatre.
The Producers Owners Jim and Jill Zimmerman.

Set in fictitious Bunyan Bay, Minn., a town with rich Norwegian heritage, this wonderful new musical comedy at St. Croix Off Broadway Dinner Theatre will entertain audiences of all ages throughout April.

A show at the Dinner Theatre is truly an event. Co-owned by director Jim Zimmerman and his wife, Jill, it has been a cultural fixture in the St. Croix Valley since 2006. Zimmerman carefully selects each cast and, after four weeks of production time, is ready to raise the curtain and entertain audiences.

Don’t Hug Me, We’re Family is the sixth in the smash hit Don’t Hug Me series of musical comedies written by Phil Olson, with music by Paul Olson, but don’t let this deter you: The Don’t Hug Me series are stand-alone musicals that can be viewed in any order.

Friday and Saturday evenings with noon matinee shows April 14 and 18; show ends May 18. Recommended for ages 6 and older.
