PopovichLyingDownMaryland Hall presents the world famous Comedy Pet Theater on Friday, March 20 at 7:30 pm. This family-oriented theatrical circus is a blend of unique physical comedy, starring Gregory Popovich and the extraordinary talents of his rescued performing pets. Tickets are $26 for Non-Members; $21 for Maryland Hall members and $17 for children.

Internationally-acclaimed award winner, Gregory Popovich, is the producer and star of the show along with his entourage of 30 rescued furry four-legged performers. Popovich has won numerous juggling awards and is known as one of the top three best jugglers of the world. Currently, he holds the world record in a balancing/juggling feat in which he stands atop a nine-foot free standing ladder and juggles nine rings.

During the show, audiences will witness acts such as the Dog Classroom, the Amazing House-Cats, the Animal Train Station and so much more. Surprise appearances by more animal performers, including trained doves, parrots, goats and even a miniature horse named Diamond, along with acrobats, mimes, contortionists and jaw dropping juggling by Popovich.

All pets that perform in Comedy Pet Theater are rescues from shelters — and serve as furry ambassadors for animals seeking homes. “When people see these amazing, healthy animals on stage and decide to adopt an animal from a shelter themselves, my main message has reached the audience,” says Popovich. Popovich is a master animal trainer who employs positive-reinforcement techniques in his training — coaching individual animals to perform tasks based on their natural habits. He has shared his expertise for raising, training and living harmoniously with pets in two books: “You CAN Train Your Cat: Secrets of a Master Cat Trainer,” and “Doggy Gone Good: A Master’s Guide to Teaching Manners, Tricks and Healthy Habits.”

Maryland Hall is supported by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of Maryland and the National Endowment for the Arts, and a grant from the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County. Additional support comes from sponsors including: The Helena Foundation, AT&T, Inovalon, Inc., Wells Fargo, Comcast, Charles Schwab, Verizon, Severn Savings Bank, Sandy Spring Bank, DoubleTree by Hilton Annapolis, M&T Bank and Towne Transport.
