The Ringling Brothers might have some furry competition heading their way.

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.
