Sure, You Have Heard About Acrobats, But What About Acro-CATS? Find Out More Tomorrow

Set in Midtown on Main and the light rail, the Midtown Arts & Theater Center was created to provide a home for a broad spectrum of Houston’s arts. The venue promises to be a creative collaboration unlike anything Houston has even seen, and with that being said, they are excited to welcome The Amazing Acro-Cats on Saturday, February 2nd!

The Amazing Acro-cats Featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats are a troupe of touring performing house cats. This one-of-a-kind, two-hour long purrformance features talented domesticated house cats roll on balls, ride skateboards, jump through hoops, and more!

The finale is the only all-cat band in the entire world - Tuna and the Rock Cats! The current band lineup features Nola on guitar, Asti on drums, Nue on keyboard, and NOW some brand-new members: Ahi on woodblocks and Albacore on cowbell, Buggles on trumpet, and Oz on Saxophone. There is even a chicken - Cluck Norris - rockin' the tambourine!

It all started with Chief Executive Human (or CEH for short) and cat lover, Samantha Martin. Training animals at a young age, she knew instantly she would be working with animals for the rest of her life. By founding Rock Cats Rescue, the real reason behind having a traveling animal show, she has saved the lives of over 215 cats and kittens. Using the magic of clicker training, Samantha (and a few other humans) travel with over 15 cats and kittens all across the United States, educating and entertaining audiences that cats actually can be trained. Currently recovering from stage 3 cancer, she tenaciously continues to save the lives of cats and kittens through rescue, foster, and adoption.

Featured on national TV shows like the 2016 Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, Tuna and the Rock Cats purrformed the half-time honors! Their most recent national appearance was on Adult Swim.

For more information on the show, as well as videos of the cats, visit circuscats.com. This event is suitable for cat lovers of all ages. Children 2 and under do not need to purrchase a ticket. Tickets range between $25-$40.
