Michael Jackson tribute concert

The King of Pop lives on through Danny Dash Andrews, one of the most requested Michael Jackson impersonators.

Andrews will bring his two-hour tribute show, which spans four decades of Jackson’s storied career, to the Theater at North, 1539 N. Main Ave., Scranton, on Sunday, July 22.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the show starts at 8. Tickets cost $20 to $50 and are available through thetheateratnorth.com.

The show is appropriate for all ages and features state-of-the-art lighting and sound that emulate Jackson’s own immersive concerts.

 

Doga in the Park

Yogis will have some competition for best downward dog pose during an upcoming doga class.

Sprint for Service Dogs and Jaya Yoga will co-host the dog-friendly yoga (doga) experience on Saturday, July 21, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at Hillside Park, 1188 Winola Road, Clarks Summit. Tickets are $15, available through eventbrite.com.

Doga combines massage and gentle stretching for dogs and humans alike, and organizers say it works best with smaller-breed canines, though larger dogs are welcome, too. Guests should wear comfortable, athletic clothes and bring a yoga mat, dog leash and towel.

True Friends Animal Welfare Center will have some pets up for adoption at the event, and a dog-treat bar, water station and light snacks for people also will be on hand after class.

Doga is open to participants with or without a dog.
