Krab Jab Studio also presents Toby Froud's newest award-winning short film "Lessons Learned" with the filmmaker in attendance for Q&A afterwards.

About Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam: Herded together into a graceful flow by the troop's resident emcee, Seattle's Fussy Cloud Puppet Slam is a cabaret-style puppet show for grown-ups. Each short piece whether hilarious, heartbreaking or horrifying is created and performed by puppeteers from the Pacific Northwest (and beyond!) From the brand spanking new to the tried-and-true, every act is guaranteed to have one important thing in common: puppets.
ALSO! Toby will give an intro to the 8pm screening of Labyrinth the same night. Tickets for this screening will be sold separately and are available in advance on the Grand Illusion website: http://www.grandillusioncinema.org/
