Circus Chickendog brings a talented crew of canines (Mouse, Moose, Coyote, Squirrel, and Skeeter) and circus artists to the Vortex for an incredible show, with rescue dogs doing their thing, Darren Peterson's masterful juggling and unicycling, acrobats Balyssa Ball and James Kent bending and flipping, and an original score that samples Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite. Directed by Melissa Vogt. Note: No shows on Dec. 24-26. See website for detailed schedule.
Through Jan. 5. Sun., 4:30pm; Mon.-Wed., 4:30 & 6:30pm; Thu., 4:30pm. $15-37.
