Since 1985, comedy duo Scott and Joan Houghton have brought their unique blend of physical comedy and circus arts to audiences from Las Vegas to Tokyo. They spent three years with country star Lee Greenwood at his theater in Tennessee and seven years as the featured comedy act at Dolly Parton’s Theaters in Branson, Orlando, and Myrtle Beach.
In 2005, the duo turned their attention to a creating a comedy dog act. Their nine amazing canine partners are all adopted from animal shelters and rescues. Mutts Gone Nuts is sure to unleash havoc and hilarity as the Houghtons attempt to match wits with their mischievous mutts in a family-friendly performance that is leaving audiences howling for more!
Mutts Gone Nuts mission and assurances: The show’s dogs were adopted from animal shelters or from rescue groups. The Houghtons use all positive, reward-based training methods, which means they reward and reinforce the behaviors that they want (with treats, toys, and praise) and they ignore the behaviors we don’t want. They look for what their dogs like to do naturally, and cultivate those talents. In addition, living conditions for their four-legged stars are a priority, with their dogs traveling in large, padded, and climate controlled kennels for their safety when on tour. And, their dogs live indoors and are never kept outside in kennels. All are USDA APHIS (Animal Welfare) registered. And, all are incredibly talented and entertaining! Don’t miss this special matinee performance at the Capitol; it’s sure to be furry family fun for all.
