Rollicking “Deer Camp the Musical” Presented at State Street Theater Co.

    September 27th, 2019

    October-almost the time of year where many men (and some women) abandon house and home and head for the woods to take up the annual ritual of deer hunting. State Street Theater is bringing to its stage the laugh-out-loud funny “Deer Camp,” Friday through Sunday, October 11-13, 2019. Advance tickets are $12.50 and at the door, $15. These can be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce, Hy-Vee, and online at

    You are invited to join the hilarity as four buddies begin their annual deer hunting trip with this year a heavy heart. After 15 years of coming home with nothing but a hangover, their wives have given them a mandate: Bag a deer or your deer camp days are over! Only one hurdle stands in their way—none of them knows how to hunt! Do they buy a dead deer? Steal one? Could they possibly try to…shoot one? With this wacky troop, it seems the only ones safe in the woods are the deer. But with song and dance, a bit of chance, and some audience interaction, their prayers are answered just as they run out of beer. Get ready to laugh your antlers off!

    Performances are held at the State Street Theater, 1 N State Street, New Ulm, MN. Theater doors open one-half hour before the 7 p.m. shows on Friday and Saturday evenings, October 11-12, and at 1:30 p.m. for the 2 p.m. Sunday, October 13 matinee.
