The Muttcracker (Sweet!)

Darren Peterson's Circus Chickendog presents a fabulously fun show for all ages, featuring talented rescue dogs performing circus feats, a talking parrot, world-class juggling, unicycling, live music, and many more magical acts. We recommend the show highly, because you can imagine how awesome something like this could be, right? And then you actually see it? And, whoa, it's even better. Dec. 18-Jan. 3. Thu. & Sun., 6pm; Fri.-Sat., 6 & 8pm. $10-30.
