King Friday’s Dungeon – A Puppet Slam!

King Friday’s Dungeon meets annually at Mayo Street Arts as part of a national Puppet Slam Network created by Heather Henson.  Puppet artists from around the area perform pieces of puppet theater that are new, edgy, adult-themed, and works in progress.  Check out King Friday on Facebook to see more photos and learn about upcoming puppet slams!

On Saturday November 21st, 2015 King Friday’s Dungeon will return to Mayo Street Arts in Portland, with musical guests Destroy Them My Robots – an 80’s cover band comprised of members of Frogtown Mountain Puppeteers.

Why King Friday’s Dungeon? King Friday, post-monarch, deposed and living in squalor beneath an old vaudeville house hath requestedeth new puppet works and puppet works-in-progress for an impromptu, after-hours, puppet-roadhouse show. Pieces shall be edgy, bawdy, humorous, elegant, or bizarre. Object theater, canastoria, and ventriloquism are likely candidates too. Come romp through the netherrealms of puppet and object theater with K.F.
