If you are looking for a fun thing to do with the family…

Enjoy the Amazing Acro-Cats perform at the Santa Monica Playhouse. 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.

Samantha Martin, chief human for the Amazing Acro-Cats, challenges the idea that “cats can’t be trained.”

A April2014-SMPlayhouse-TheRockCats-1portion 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.

For more show details and information about the cats, visit our website at www.circuscats.com
