The World Famous Popovich Comedy Pet Theatre! Voted Best New Family Show!

Unique entertainer Gregory Popovich is not backward about coming forward when it comes to talking up his talents or those of his furry co-stars.

He’s taken Las Vegas by storm, chosen as “Entertainer of the Year” and he is bringing his pet-stravaganza to the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, Dec. 9 starting at the family friendly hour of 6:30 p.m.

You can’t make your cat listen to you? His pets will jump through hoops for him, and more.

It’s a fun way for the whole family to enjoy a night out in the big theatre.

According to Popovich’s press release, “There are more than 30 pets in this show, each one has been rescued from animal shelters and given a new leash on life! They love to perform their skills and stunts on stage. We have new additions to the show as well — a goat duo Kurt and Helgo, and a special guest star Mr. Diamond, the miniature horse!”

Popovich has shared his expertise for raising, training and living harmoniously with pets in two books, “You CAN Train Your Cat” and “Doggy Gone Good”.

Tickets are $36 for adults, $15 for children 12 years and under. There’s also a family package rate (for two adults and two children) that gets you all in for $86.
