Improv Hootenanny <p>The Bovine's Community Night. Every Monday night is an Improv Festival.<br /><br />Come one, come all to the best darn improv hootenanny in Denver and the Front Range. Every Monday night for the last 17 years, Bovine Metropolis has let its doors swing open wide to welcome teams of improv performers from Colorado to join the stage and share their own hilarious improvised adventures.<br /><br />Coming from different backgrounds and with different levels of experience, each team brings something unique to the stage and leaves the audience with an unforgettable night. Among the performers, audiences will see classes from the Bovine’s improv school, visiting teams, and several house favorites.<br /><br />"We are a welcoming theater and enjoy seeing improv grow around Denver. We think it’s really cool to see different venues, groups, and performers pop up around town. The Bovine has been around a long time and I believe the Improv Hootenanny has contributed much to that,” says Improv Hootenanny-in-Chief Denise Maes.<br /><br />Anyone who wants to see something new, which could mean anyone who’s a fan of improv, will enjoy the variety of talent gracing the Bovine’s stage. And as an audience member, you’ll have your chance to add to the fun by offering suggestions and watching as these performers use them to step into the unknown.<br /> <br /><br /><br />Tickets: $10 online*, $12 at the door, and $5 at door for College Students with valid ID (space permitting).<br /><br /></p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Improv Cabaret <p>Glamour. Fame. True crime. Live music. Come celebrate all things cabaret with Bovine Metropolis' new show: Improv Cabaret: An Improvised Fosse Musical. Inspired by the music, dance, and style of the Jazz Age and musicals such as Cabaret and Chicago, Improv Cabaret explores both the high-energy and dangerous sides of life in a metropolis through improvised scenes and music.<br /><br />“You get the experience of seeing a musical in Denver’s theater district,” says Director Kat Bond, “AND you have the joy of seeing the only performance created by your suggestions. It’s your private performance of a one-time show."<br /><br />Be careful, though—not everything in Improv Cabaret is coming up roses. All those passing strangers, those narrow alleyways, those high-rise shadows mean that danger lurks in the urban jungle.<br /><br />“Improv Cabaret is a dangerous musical," says Bond. "While it is a comedy, we will not shy away from scarier or grittier subject matter. . . . Our characters will be on the fringe of society, the oddballs. You can be a murderer or a starlet in this show, even if you work at the dog groomer. Expect to laugh. Expect a story. Expect to see deeper themes and social commentary in a fun way.”<br /><br />Improv Cabaret plays on select Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.<br /><br />Tickets for 7:30 p.m. shows: $10 online*, $12 at the door, and $5 at door for College Students with valid ID (space permitting).</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Fake Network News <p>FNN: Real issues. Biased Coverage.<br /> <br />This just in...some news should be fake. Luckily, savvy experts at Denver's own Bovine Metropolis Theater are stepping in to corner the market with their new, fully improvised show, “Fake Network News."<br /><br />Performed in the style of Meet the Press, AC 360 and other cable news programs, FNN features interviews, recurring segments and round-table discussions between their fake news anchors and a ‘virtual who’s who’ of counterfeit experts, pundits and commentators.<br /> <br />“The fakest of the fake. (@BovineMetro) Sad. So-called journalists make up all the facts. PATHETIC. Only I can do that. LOSERS.”<br /> ~President Trump (note: this is a fake tweet, or IS it?)<br /><br />While the Pundits might be fake, the issues are utterly real and provided by the audience. Gun control? Sure. Immigration? Why not. The ethics of pet squirrel fashion shows? Um, ok. The anchors, reporters and commentators at FNN are chomping at the bit to give you all the fake news you deserve. The FNN production staff is going rogue, unscripted and improvised. It’s all fabricated on the spot, and in front of your lying eyes.<br /> <br />“Do not see this show. It is false American propaganda and lies. Unfunny. Read smart tweets from our puppet, your GREAT AMERICAN President.”<br /> ~ Vladimir Putin (note: this is a fake quote, or IS it?)<br /><br />Share your ideas with the glorious hairdos and buffoonish news anchors. Bring an open mind and a willingness to laugh at the absurdities inherent in today’s political landscape.<br /> <br />“Fake Network News” premiers Wednesday nights at 7:30, opening on March 29th and running through May 17th. All shows are for all ages but will be dealing with adult, political content.<br /><br />Tickets: $10 online*, $12 at the door, and $5 at the door for College Students with valid ID (space permitting).</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Heirs of Hogwarts <p>Apparate Over for a Night of Magic!<br /><br />Send out your owls! Hogwarts has been rebuilt and the future generations of magical children are all excited for a year at Hogwarts. <br /> <br />He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named has been destroyed, there surely is no evil left to threaten the Heirs of Hogwarts... or is there?<br /> <br />Experience a loving homage to the world of Harry Potter. With completely improvised story lines, this is a heartfelt send-up to the universe created by J.K. Rowling and is the only Harry Potter themed improv show in Denver. Imagine a love letter in the form of spoof, and that’s what witches, wizards and muggles will be enjoying Friday Nights at 8:00 p.m. at the Bovine Metropolis Theater.<br /> <br />And just like a Bag of Bertie Bott’s every flavored beans, “Anything can happen,” says Gryffindor and Dramaturg, Kent Welborn. “In improv anything can happen, and then in the magical world of Harry Potter anything can happen double.”<br /> <br />All the things you love about the Harry Potter universe will be displayed on stage: charms, Hogwarts houses, transfiguration, and magical creatures. Returning to Hogwarts has never been this funny. “Heirs of Hogwarts: An Improvised Adventure” is a loving fan-fiction parody of an entire year at Hogwarts.<br /> <br />Expect, “Magic,” says Welborn.<br /> <br />Come by portkey, broom, or apparition to the Bovine Metropolis Theater, to revel in all things magical. Your presence is requested, by the professors of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, first years are reminded not to do magic outside of school.<br /> <br />Plays Friday or Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. through September 2017. See drop menu for date options. All Shows are for all ages.<br /> <br /><br />Tickets: $18 online*, $20 at the door, and $5 at door for College Students with valid ID (space permitting).<br />When you buy tickets to Heirs of Hogwarts at 8:00 p.m. you get admission (and more laughs) to "On The Spot" at 10:15 for FREE!</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
