February 1st through 14th we rock the laughs with our annual TheatreSports Festival, Throwdown (formerly called The Massacre).

February 1 through 4 sees local teams compete in a classic TheatreSports™ round robin competition. The laughs start to flow based on suggestions from the audience and things can quickly become quite partisan as audience members root for their favourite performers. As in all classic TheatreSports™ matches, the final outcome is determined by audience judges scoring each of the ‘games’ within a match. The team with the most points wins.

February 9 through 14 we welcome top notch international teams from as far afield as Oslo, Norway and Mumbai, India in a series of hilarious matches and showcases. This year’s international line-up features:

Sak Comedy Lab, Orlando, USA (returning champions)
Det Andre Teatret, Oslo, Norway
Improv Mumbai, Mumbai, India
Jet City, Seattle, USA
Montreal Improv, Montreal, Canada

The last evening, February 14th, sees the winners of the international competitions play with the local victors from the previous week in a winner-takes-all laugh fest.
