The Amazing Acro-cats Dive into Denver!
The Amazing Acro-Cats Dive into Denver Colorado!
Chicago, IL, May 11th , 2014
The Bug Theatre (3654 Navajo St, Denver, CO 80211) welcomes Samantha Martin and her Amazing Acro-Cats as they dive into Denver Colorado. Purr-formances begin July 31st through August 10th , 2014. Adult tickets are $18, children are $15 and are available at www.circuscats.com.
The one-hour show features over a dozen fabulous felines (former orphans, rescues, and strays) walking tightropes, pushing carts, skateboarding, jumping through hoops, ringing bells, balancing on balls and turning on lights. Alley, our newest addition to the troupe, will be sure to delight and amaze you with her energy and ability. But wait there's more! Tuna, the star of the show, is the leader of the ONLY CAT BAND IN EXISTANCE the Rock Cats. With Oz on guitar, Dakota on drums, Nue on keyboards, and Sookie on chimes - Tuna (who plays cowbell) and her band really steal the show with their own style of original music. There is even a chicken, Cluck Norris, on cymbal and tambourine!
Samantha Martin, Chief Executive Human (or CEH for short) for the Amazing Acro-Cats, challenges the idea that "cats can't be trained." Tuna and the gang are real house cats who have learned all their skills through something called clicker training. The shows include a demonstration of a cat learning some basic tricks using this method that focuses on positive reinforcement only. Although she has studied and worked with many species, today Martin's primary focus is on cats. Training builds richer and more meaningful relationships between animals and humans and it can save time and lives in emergencies. A lifelong fascination and unique bond with animals motivated Martin to study and earn her degree in animal husbandry and behavioral sciences.
A portion of the Acro-Cats' tickets sales is donated to feline shelter and rescue organizations. Martin advocates adoption from these organizations. Over the past four years, Martin has also purr-sonally found homes for over 130 cats and kittens and continues to take fosters on the road and help them find their furr-ever homes.
