The Colonial Theatre in Keene, NH presents “The Stunt Dog Experience” at 7:30pm on Friday, May 12. Chris Perondi is the Stunt Dog Guy and his famous stunt dogs are out of this world! Director Chris Perondi has been entertaining audiences of all sizes since 1999. He has produced over 3,500 shows in his career. Over 2,000 have been stage shows for major theme parks such as Silver Dollar City in Branson-MO, Dollywood in Pigeon Forge-TN, Stone Mountain Georgia, Worlds of Fun in Kansas City-MO, Valleyfair Theme Park, Long Island Wildlife Park, and Knotts Berry Farm in Southern California. The Stunt Dog Guy has a cast of performers and dogs that will delight audiences of all ages. He guarantees high energy excitement from beginning to end. The experience has amazing tricks, big air stunts, comedy antics, dancing dogs, athletic feats, and is the most entertaining show of its kind.
Audience members will meet a cast of professional performers along with over a dozen talented pound pups. The show is one-of-a-kind and brings forth pet adoption awareness. All the dogs have been rescued from pounds and shelters from across the country. The mission is to promote animal rescue, pet adoption, encourage spay & neutering, and encourage people to spend more time with their pets.
Don’t forget Diggy the human sized canine mascot! Diggy is always trying to be a part of the show in some silly way. He starts off trying to convince you that he is the real star of the show. You’ll laugh as he tries his paws at jumping rope like the real dogs and then begs to do the famous Evil Knievel stunt. With a little motivation Diggy finally realizes he needs to be a team player and becomes the best helper ever.
Every show includes interactive crowd participation. It’s not just a show, it’s an experience! Audience members will chant “Dog gone fun!” and be involved in the excitement of the production. The show will include showdowns that will be judged and won by audience applause. Don’t forget the athletic feats! From world class Frisbee catching dogs, the Extreme Canines triathlon, weave pole challenges, to the famous high-jumping phenomenon, the audience will witness the most athletic and talented dogs in the world.
