Mutts Gone Nuts at The Lyric Theatre, 2PM - 4PM and 5PM - 7PM
$38. "If you go onstage with kids or animals, you may well find yourself overlooked. If the animals are the cutest rescue dogs on the planet, it's a given, but that doesn't bother Scott and Jane Houghton of Mutts Gone Nuts. They are happy to share the stage with their adorable friends for a high-energy, high-wire show that is perfect for the entire family. Kids, parents and grandparents will love the pooches and the adults they let share the stage. The show is billed a "Canine Cabaret" and that should tell you that you're going to get a little of everything. The Houghtons, who are known as the "disorderly duo," have been performing together as a comedy team since 1984 and are known for blending physical comedy and circus artistry. They traveled the world and spent several years at Lee Greenwood's theater in Tennessee and as the featured act for Greenwood in Las Vegas and Tennessee. The duo also spent seven years with Dolly Parton's production, Dixie Stampede. In 1996, they adopted their first rescue pooch and began fostering dogs in the off-season for a local rescue group. They brought Chico into their act in 2005 and by 2007, they'd reinvented themselves as Mutts Gone Nuts.

The Houghtons are very serious about keeping their shows funny, and they're also serious about the welfare of the dogs in their care. Their rescue dogs are trained using positive, reward-based methods like toys and praise. They look for what each dog likes to do and cultivates that talent. The dogs live indoors, have two acres of fenced area to run when they are at home and travel in large, padded, climate controlled kennels for safety when on tour. Chico, who is (probably) a Chihuahua and Pomeranian mix, is only 15 lbs., but he's the top dog. Feather, the group's first Greyhound, is a rescue dog who was saved after she couldn't run fast enough. She may not be a racer, but she has jaw-dropping jumping skills and has the unofficial world record for the highest jump by a dog. Pixel, also known as Wheels, is a Border collie mix. She can run and out-maneuver much bigger dogs and is Chico's understudy.

Charlie is a Jack Russell terrier who was rescued on his last day, He's agile and loves to climb, which makes him the perfect high-wire walking dog. Chuck Taylor is a Frisbee-playing border collie who was given up because he preferred to herd sticks instead of cows. Geronimo is a cattle dog mix who is the only dog in the world to jump into two spinning ropes at the same time. Rox Steady is a Heinz mix who looks just like Geronimo. Her specialties are agility and tricks. Paco, who was picked up as a stray in Wyoming, does everything from high jump to barrel. McNerdy's favorite toy is the Frisbee and he could play all day, dazzling the crowd with his athletic ability.

To even up the sides, the Houghtons have brought some two-legged creatures on board. Samantha Valle is one of the world's top trainers and a spokesperson for animal rescue. She and Geronimo hold the Guinness World's Record for a dog jumping rope Double Dutch. They have appeared with David Letterman and Steve Harvey. Jonathan Burns is a contortionist who became fascinated with magic as a child and learned that he could make a living contorting his body. He has appeared at colleges and festivals around the world. If you are lucky enough to have a kid in your life, you don't want to miss this show. If you don't have a kid, you might want to rent one. They'll have an awful lot of fun, and you'll laugh yourself silly, even at Scott's corny jokes. Try your doggone best to see this show. You'll be glad you did." 772-286-7827, www.lyrictheatre.com .

Terry Virts at The Lyric Theatre, 7PM - 9PM
"He made an appearance on the last Star Trek Enterprise episode in 2005, which is fitting, as the original series is what sent him soaring into space. NASA astronaut Terry Virts has served as a pilot of the space shuttle Endeavour, a crew member on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft and most recently as commander of the International Space Station during 200 consecutive days in space, one of the longest continuous space missions of any NASA astronaut. He helped install the outpost's 360 degree observation module and made good use of it, taking hours of video and hundreds of thousands of still images, including some featured in the National Geographic book, View from Above. He's a star of the breathtaking IMAX film, A Beautiful Planet, featuring his footage from space.

Now you have the opportunity to step back, some 220 miles from earth, and experience our planet from a new perspective. With Terry Virts as your guide, you will gain a deeper understanding of our planet's beauty, climate and place in the universe. You have the opportunity to hear Terry Virts talk about his time in space and the new perspectives he gained about our world and then have the opportunity to ask questions about everything you've always wanted to know about space travel.

Terry Virts always wanted to be an astronaut, but it turns out that his favorite planet is Earth. It wasn't until he was farthest from home that he came to really appreciate the beauty of our world, and he shares that perspective through his stunning photos and videos.

National Geographic has been making explorers of all of us for more than a century through groundbreaking storytelling from the world's best and brightest scientists, explorers, photographers and filmmakers. National Geographic Live! brings their stories to the stage and enables audiences to interact with the men and women who have gone where few have gone before.

Drop by Drop: Watering the seeds of change in South Sudan at The Lyric Theatre, 7PM - 9PM
"Salva Dut tells his story of fleeing the civil war in Sudan and explains how that experience led to his current mission — bringing clean drinking water to his home country. Salva was born in a rural village in southwestern Sudan to the Dinka Tribe. At 11 years old, the Sudanese civil war reached his village and separated Salva from his family. He joined thousands of boys, famously known as the "Lost Boys" on their journey by foot to seek safety in a refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya. After living in refugee camps for 10 years, Salva was given the opportunity to move to the United States, where he would be embraced by a family in Rochester, NY. A few years later Salva learned that his father was still alive in Southern Sudan but was suffering from a water-borne parasites and disease. This inspired Salva to help his father and his country by bringing clean water to those in need. This was the beginning of Water for South Sudan.

Salva's story is told in the New York Times bestseller A Long Walk to Water, by Linda Sue Park. About Water for South Sudan: Water for South Sudan delivers direct, transformative and sustainable quality-of-life service to the people of South Sudan by efficiently providing access to clean, safe water and improving hygiene and sanitation practices in areas of great need.

The StepCrew at The Lyric Theatre, 4PM - 6PM and 7PM - 9PM
"StepCrew and its cast of 11 combine three styles of percussive dance, featuring the world's top talents in Irish, Tap and Ottawa Valley Stepdancing. It is a pure celebration of dance, showcasing each traditional form while creating what Jean Butler of Riverdance called "a unique and seamless blend of all three." The company takes the audience on a journey from a house party in the back kitchen of an old Irish cottage to a lamp-lit street in New York City to a French Canadian lumber camp in Quebec, using nothing more than their talented feet.

Nathan and Jon Pilatzke, brothers, spent their summers like a lot of young Canadian children, traveling around the province competing in fiddle and stepdance festivals. They grew up to be among Canada's leading Ottawa Valley Stepdancers and along the way, they met Cara Butler, a multiple Irish Stepdancing champion and principal Irish dancer for the famed Chieftains for two decades. The three went on to create a new dance production company, StepCrew.

They have a not-so-secret weapon in the musical ensemble that performs with them and has everything from Canadian champion fiddle players to some of the most sought-after musicians in the Celtic, folk and rock genres. They have performers from the likes of the Chieftains, Cherish the Ladies, Loreena McKennit, Carlos Nunez and Bowfire. Among them is Alyth McCormack, a native of Scotland, whose vocals contrast the vigor of the dance but act as a soundtrack inspiring it.

The show itself takes the audience on another journey, through a varying array of textures from high-energy dance to haunting vocals, groovy music, complex choreography and comical props. The StepCrew was designed to highlight staging and musicality and the pure talents of solo performers with nothing more than their feet, instruments and voices to reach their audience. They offer everything from the bluesy origins of tap to traditional Irish and Scottish music and modern day Celtic fusion.

Six-time Grammy winner Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains said it this way: "The StepCrew does not simply draw their audience in, they take them by the hand and remind us what dance is meant to be about - fun!""

7PM - 9PM. "Prepare to be amazed by Treasure Coast student performers in the fourth annual Youth Arts Celebration presented by The Lyric League! Young entertainers, grades 12 and under, will take to The Lyric stage in this dynamic talent showcase to represent their passions and dedication through various forms of performing arts.

The Youth Arts Celebration is not a contest, but rather an opportunity to recognize these students for their commitment to their craft, the courage to express themselves and their love of the arts. The emerging artists are diverse in their talents and backgrounds, but all are united by their love of performing. While not all of the participants have aspirations of performing professionally, they are clearly benefiting from their arts education demonstrating positive, respectful, focused behavior and support for one another. Beyond the appeal of the bright lights and thunderous applause, these talented performers also benefit from the sharing and exchanging of ideas, exposure to different styles of artistic expression and a sense of camaraderie. Reinforcing how arts education instills discipline and values so vital to becoming a quality human being. The parents and educators deserve equal credit, as there is no denying the level of commitment these families have made to their children.

The Youth Arts Celebration is presented by The Lyric League, comprised of Niki Norton, Chair, Paula Blake, Janice Binger, Scott Eves, JoAnne Harris, Sharon Holt, Sheila Kurtz, Pat Pendergast and Linda Weiksnar. The League's focus is to raise funds to expand The Lyric's Arts & Education Programs affording Treasure Coast youth even more educational opportunities for cultural enrichment. The Lyric's Arts & Education Programs provide master class and residency opportunities for students in area schools; The Discovery Series for Young Audiences, a series of school-time shows exposing students to live theatre and correlating theatrical content to standards-based curriculum; Family Fun Series provides the magic of live entertainment, reinforcing the fundamental values of time spent as a family; and building character on and off the stage at The Lyric's AWESOME!
