Why was this musical held for a group of dogs?

For a great reason, it turns out!

Recently, there was a musical performance of "Billy Elliott" put on in Canada with some very special guests in the audience.  LOOK AT THIS PICTURE.

I hope this picture becomes a meme for years to come.  ANYway, what's going on here?  It turns out that it was a group of service dogs in training!  They were learning how to chill and be calm so they can provide support to their future owners!
