SCP Fall 2023 Show:
Don't Hug Me
a love story with singing and stuff

We are pleased to announce the cast of

"Don't Hug Me"!

Travis Baumgarten, Kelsey Johnson, Robert Quinnell, Heidi Sue Schultz, and Collin Bays!

This was a tough one because we didn't have enough parts for all the talented people who wanted to be a part of this fall musical, but we are looking hard for a spring show with a lot of roles so more great actors can be onstage.

Featuring the songs "I'm a Walleye Woman in a Crappie Town," "My Smorgasbord of Love," "Upside Down in My Pickup
