Our   History and Mission

Crassroots community theatre

Lords of Misrule Theatre Co formed unofficially in 2019 with the closure of The Road Home shelter in downtown Salt Lake City. A group of friends from the Salt Lake Community College theatre program got together and devised a unique show based on mutual-aid and community support. The show was called The Lord of Misrule and it pioneered the donation based theater model they continue to use today. Instead of buying a ticket, the audience donates money to a charitable cause or community aid group to change how the actors have to perform the show. Lords of Misrule shows have raised money for The Road Home, Our Unsheltered Relatives, The U of U Prison Education Project, AAMP Utah, and Save The Kids Group. 

Lords of Misrule are part of AAMP Utah, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting alternative arts and music with a focus on access. The theatre company teaches a free workshop on the last Sunday of every month at Mark of the Beastro and anyone is free to attend and play with us. 

Mission Statement

Lords of Misrule are creators of experimental, interactive theatre projects that directly engage audiences in building their community. We do this by:

  1. Establishing community infrastructure, like mutual-aid dropoff points, and creating space for social activities, outlets for expression, and community outreach.

  2. Educating the community through artistic expression.

  3. Challenging harmful narratives and fostering feelings of hope.

  4. Supporting existing mutual aid programs, charities, and community infrastructure.

Our   Venue

As part of AAMP Utah, we are a resident theatre company at The Beehive, an all ages venue known for its DIY punk shows. 

It's located in the same building as Mark of the Beastro, a vegan diner.

Located at:

666 State Street, SLC, UT, 84111
