2010-11 Season

Escanaba in da Moonlight

by Jeff Daniels

Those Super Yoopers are back in the original classic that started it all! When the Soady clan reunites for the opening day of deer season, 35-year-old Reuben brings with him the infamous reputation of being the oldest Soady in family history to never bag a buck. In the hunting story to beat all hunting stories, Escanaba in Da Moonlight spins a hilarious tale of humor, horror, and heart as Reuben goes to any and all lengths to remove himself from the wrong page of the family record book. A delight for men and women alike, this winter spend an unforgettable night in the Upper Peninsula without the long drive up north!
