Event website

Hear ye! Hear ye! King Friday, post-monarch, deposed and living in squalor beneath an old vaudeville house requests thy presence to witness the unveiling of new puppet works and puppet works in progress at an impromptu, after-hours, puppet-roadhouse show.

King Friday’s Dungeon Puppet Slam is an opportunity for emerging and experienced puppeteers and physical artists to share works-in-progress, experimental projects, and other acts that dance outside of the family-friendly mainstream puppet circuit. The event includes live music by the Ideal Maine Social Aid & Sanctuary Band.

King Friday’s Dungeon Puppet Slam is part of the national Puppet Slam Network created by Heather Henson and curated by local Maine puppeteers.

Whether this is your first foray into the dungeon or you’re a veteran of depravity, you’ll be tantalized and tickled by spicy skits, short films, and other surprises devised for your viewing pleasure. The dungeon is never the same sprawl twice!

Friday, May 20 & Saturday, May 21 | Doors open at 7:00 PM

Show begins at 7:30 PM; 90-minutes with an intermission.

Tickets are available for $15 in advance, $18 at the door, and $22 for preferred seating (sliding scale available).
