MANSFIELD, OH- "Mutts Gone Nuts," a talented troupe of rescued dogs and their trainers, will perform at the Renaissance Theatre on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

The family-friendly show will feature a range of tricks and humor, lauded by the Washington Post as “A Must See.”

Along with the ten canine stars, the show is led by trainers Scott and Joan Houghton, Samantha Valle, and Jonathan Burns. Scott and Joan Houghton have been performing together as a duo since 1984. They have played at a variety of stages and festivals throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan as Jessie & James, a slapstick, unicycling act. They spent three years as the featured comedy act with country music's Lee Greenwood both in Las Vegas and Tennessee, and seven years with Dolly Parton's production, Dixie Stampede.

In 1996, the Houghtons adopted their first dog from a shelter in Knoxville, TN and later began fostering dogs in their off-season for a local rescue group. They practiced reward-based training methods through the influence of positive trainers Pat Miller, Jean Donaldson, and Karen Pryor.

Tickets are on sale starting at $15 at the Renaissance Box Office, via phone at (419)522-2726, and online at A limited number of $50 Family Four Packs, which include four Section C seats and two popcorns, are available for this show. Mutts Gone Nuts is presented with sponsorship by PR Machine Works, Inc. and Slick Automated Solutions, Inc.
