SUPER HAPPY FUNTIME

INFO
Saturday, May 27 2017

Utterly unique and unclassifiable; Super Happy Funtime is all at once a live band, an original work of musical theater, a comedy show, a bawdy and sexy theatrical production, a giant ball of chaos rolled up into one neat little production that has been leaving jaws on the floor for nearly a decade.  From its origins as a humble burlesque show in a small conservative Michigan town, SHFB has evolved into a full blown rock opera dripping with sex, humor, and the surreal that has extended its reach from the third coast to the rest of the world. 
Defying the odds, this 12 member production plays nearly 100 shows a year around the nation. Super Happy Funtime fancifully and musically deconstructs taboos and convention using original music that backs up a cast of playful and beautiful burlesque dancers with topical humor and genre bending performance art.

Portland’s sex-positive, queer-positive feminist burlesque performers Moxie Sazerac and Amandaconda will start the night out with their sexual, sensual, erotic and playful performances.
