Famous pet show coming to Madras
Remember the animal act that reached the semi-finals in season two of "America's Got Talent?" They're coming to Madras.
Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, recently voted the best family show in Las Vegas, is coming to the Madras Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 6, in association with Three Rivers Humane Society.
The show is a European-style circus extravaganza that features physical comedy, juggling, acrobats from the Moscow Circus — and the "stars" of the show, highly intelligent dogs and even house cats.
All the show's pets are trained using positive reinforcement techniques, and ones that enhance their natural abilities.
Gregory Popovich — a fifth-generation circus performer who learned early on how to develop strong bonds with animals — has rescued a majority of his performers from shelters all over the country, and has transformed them into Las Vegas stars.
He is a gold medal winner in Paris, France, and a special award winner in Monte Carlo. Along with their run on "America's Got Talent," Popovich and his pets have been guests on various TV talk shows with Jay Leno, David Letterman, Craig Ferguson. They've also been featured on Animal Planet and many more shows.
T?ickets are available at the door, or at madraspac.brownpapertickets.com.
Ticket prices range from $15-$35. Call the box office at 702-610-9504 for more information.
