The Lyric Theatre and the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast present Joel Slaven's professional animals on Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. and on Nov. 4 at 3 p.m.

Adult tickets for this family friendly event are $25 and children under 18 are $15. A portion of the proceeds benefits the animals at the HSTC.

Mr. Slaven, who made many appearances alongside Jack Hanna, celebrated zookeeper and TV personality, will return to the Lyric with his own troupe of professional animals. Featuring the most exotic wildlife from around the globe, this show will showcase one of the most talented animal trainers in the industry.

Mr. Slaven served as head animal trainer for Cypress Gardens, Disney's Mickey Mouse Club and even Hollywood, as animal trainer for the "Ace Ventura" series.

Mr. Slaven's 40-year career working with animals began in Columbus, Ohio, at the Columbus Zoo, raising exotic wildlife for Mr. Hanna.

From there, he forged his own path, working as head animal trainer and show producer for parks and entertainment venues across the country. His multi-decade experience with a wide variety of animals promises a show that is filled with wildlife from around the world.

His work with exotic animals extends beyond training and producing entertainment shows.

In 1997, Mr. Slaven established Joel Slaven's Professional Animals, Inc., which not only serves as the largest producer of domestic animal shows in the world, but also works to rescue hundreds of cats and dogs, rats, ducks, pigeons and other exotic animals from shelters throughout the U.S.

For tickets and more information about the show, call (772) 286-7827.
