Las Vegas-based Russian circus performer and ringleader of animals, Mr. Popovich brings his curious and comedic show "Popovich Comedy Pet Theatre" to the Felix E. Martin Jr. Hall in Greenville, Kentucky Friday night. Theatre Director David Probus joins Kate Lochte on Sounds Good to talk about the event, which he says is sold-out, however tickets are available for the same show the following afternoon in Bowling Green.

Mr. Popovich is a former circus performer, from the Popovich family of performers. He's an expert in juggling, fire-throwing and acrobatics, but differentiates with his other talent: teaching rescue animals how to act and do tricks. His western Kentucky tour features 14 house cats, 12 dogs, 10 doves and 6 mice.

All of Popovich's animals are from rescue shelters. In other words, they are typical, average house cats. The Felix E. Martin Jr. Hall has partnered with the Muhlenberg County Humane Society, asking people to bring donations for the Humane Society in the form of food, toys, cleaning supplies and treats. For your donation, Popovich will give a signed photo. Anyone who brings items will also be entered in a "secret" grand price drawing.

The show is sold-out, however he is performing in Bowling Green on Saturday, February 7 at 3 p.m. at the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SkyPAC), where they have also partnered with the local humane society.
