The Menestrelli Dog Circus
will have a free show at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20, inside the Great Hall at Artegon Marketplace.
Led by professional circus actors and animal trainers Yanina and Sergey, the circus showcases a herd of pooches performing tricks like somersaults and stair-climbing, as they go along with the show's storyline.
Menestrelli is based on the Italian Commedia dell'arte, which is a type of theater that utilizes standard masked stereotypes to tell the love story of Colombina and Harlequin.
In this show, the two lovers are poodles.
The Ringling Brothers might have some furry competition heading their way.
