Service Dogs Watch Live Musical as Part of Training
ONTARIO, Canada -- When the cast of a Canadian production of "Billy Elliot: The Musical" took their final bow after a recent show, the audience didn't make a single sound -- not even a woof. A polite crowd of about a dozen future service dogs attended an August performance at Ontario's Stratford Festival as part of their training. While a silent curtain call might disappoint actors, the dogs' spellbound stillness is a great sign for their future handlers.
