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 Heirs of Hogwarts: An Improvised Adventure <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.

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 nights at 8:00 p.m. March and April.
