Falcon Powder: Cowboys

Lower Ossington Theatre (101a Ossington Ave.)
Friday, April 13th – 9:30pm
Tickets: $15 (plus HST)

Falcon Powder presents a rare, full-length performance of their hit show “Cowboys” – a remount of their 2011 TOsketchfest performance, expanded with new material! Sketch and improv all-stars Jim Annan, Scott Montgomery and Kurt Smeaton are three of the finest live comedy writer-performers in Canada, and two-time Best of the Fest Award winners at TOsketchfest.

It’s difficult to say too much about Cowboys without giving stuff away. In fact, by calling it Cowboys we’ve probably said too much. Let’s just call it the Unnamed Falcon Powder Show With The Big Dragon Fight At The End…wait… ah, damn it! Look, just come see it, okay?

Falcon Powder Workshop: Playing the Scene Inside the Premise

Sunday, April 15th – 3-6pm
The Second City Training Centre – 70 Peter Street (Lower Level)
Workshop: $40 (plus HST)

Last year’s Best of the Fest winners Falcon Powder teach a workshop on taking scenes past their premise by focusing on dialogue and the creation of characters with clearly defined opinions, wants and needs. The emphasis will be on moving away from sketches that simply state their premise and execute it, towards discovering and playing internal beats that ground even the craziest scenes in realistic and relatable emotional arcs. Taught by Jim Annan, Scott Montgomery and Kurt Smeaton.

Sketch comedy/improv experience required.
