Comedy pet theater coming to Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center

SANDY WOJCIK Daily American Correspondent

March 28, 2011 JOHNSTOWN, PA — The Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center has always prided itself on its diversity in its entertainment. The stage at PPAC on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, will perhaps have its most diverse show yet, at 7:30 p.m. March 31 – the Gregory Popovich Comedy Pet Theater. Michael Bodolosky, the executive director of PPAC, laughed when asked why he booked a show consisting of dogs, cats and ducks. “Why not? I like to mix things up a bit and this show has a really different and unique,” he said. The Gregory Popovich Comedy Pet Theater has been entertaining audiences around the world with its animals. Popovich himself grew up the child of Russian circus performers, Alex and Tamara Popovich. Popovich started to learn how to juggle when he was just six years old. According to his official biography, he had a solo act at the age of 17 in the great Moscow Circus Group. He traveled with the circus working as a performer and appearing in Soviet films, in three starring roles. In 1990, Popovich was invited to join the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Baily Circus in the United States. He performed his juggling act in the center ring, the first Russian artist to appear in the “Greatest Show on Earth.”read more at:http://www.dailyamerican.com/lifestyle/home_family/da-ot-comedy-pet-theater-coming-to-pasquerilla-performing-arts-center-20110327,0,7213541.story
