MTL Clown Fest - Hushabye - A Doomsday Comedy

Sizzle and Spark

Company website

​Sizzle and Spark Fandango have the perfect life. The big house. The beautiful yard. The white picket fence. The only thing they are missing is 2.5 children. In their relentless quest to have it all, a nefarious deal is made that entangles them in an explosive situation with unexpected consequences. A dark comedy about the extremes we go to have the perfect life and how easily it can all blow up in our faces.

Created by and starring Jed Tomlinson and Jacqueline Russell
Directed by Michael Kennard

Founded in 2016, the mandate of The MTL Clown Fest is to create space for all levels of performers to showcase original works that fall under the Clown, Bouffon or Physical Theatre spectrum. Included in the mandate we welcome people of all genders, but are making an effort to increase representation of women-identified, gender-non-conforming and trans performers. With this in mind, we will make an effort to strive for equal and proportionate representation in our space. We are dedicated to cultivating a multi-cultural program, welcoming French, English and Nonsensical Clown Language, as well as a vast multitude of other cultural Tricksters.

Tickets can be purchase online or by telephone Tuesday through Saturday from 2pm-6pm.
Please note that same day sales are by telephone only.

Dr. Sketchy Montreal invites you to its next figure drawing session, L'éveil. The day after Groundhog Day, come draw the lovely Sucre à la Crème. She will blend Art Nouveau and pinup while presenting the transition from winter to spring.

A worthy but impecunious young man has met the girl of his dreams. There's just one hitch - she's a courtesan, and she's about to be sold to a rich soldier from abroad. Can a wily, witty, fast-taking servant find a way to bring this farce to a happy ending? The 2,000-year-old Roman comedy gets a 1930s makeover in this new translation by Celia Taylor and Manuela Galindo. Recommended for ages 12+.
