The Lakeville Area Arts Center hosts the Expressions Community Theater adaptation of a spoof of the Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol" November 9-18.  Director Jim Anderson joins us on the KDHL AM Minnesota program 9:30 this morning.  The play is entitled, "A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol."

It's Christmas Eve in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota and cantankerous bar owner Gunner Johnson gets in an argument with his wife, Clara, tells her he's skipping Christmas, storms out of the bar, goes snowmobiling across the lake, falls through the ice and goes into a coma. He comes back in his dream where he's visited by folk legend, Sven Yorgenson, who plays the ghost of Christmas past, present and future.  Sven takes Gunner (Scrooge) on a journey similar to that in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" only different.

Will Gunnar come out of his coma and find redemption with Clara at the Bunyan ?
