The Olate Dogs will dazzle at Palace Theatre

The Olate Dogs, the pack of performing pooches that won Season 7 of “America's Got Talent,” are bringing their act to in Greensburg.

The all-new, all-ages theatrical show, set for 7:30 p.m. Sept. 29 in the Palace Theatre, will include the rope-jumping, twirling and spinning that television audiences enjoyed, along with a doggy fashion show, comedy, music, cycling and juggling, both canine and human.

The heartwarming story behind the dogs began when Richard Olate began rescuing stray dogs from the street in his native Chile and training them to be part of his amateur show. A third-generation circus performer since age 12, Olate came to the United States at 33.

Today, Olate, wife Rebecca and son Nicholas continue to rescue dogs from shelters and homes and train them to become part of their professional troupe.

Their “AGT” win came with a $1 million prize.

A ticket to the Palace show is $25; a VIP meet-and-greet with the dogs is $75.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
