The Amazing Acro-cats in Madison

**This page is for the 2017 performance**
**For future performances, please refer to the Bartell Theatre homepage**

Hello cat fans!

In conjunction with Madison Cat Project​ and West Towne Veterinary Center​ we will be hosting a Cat costume contest at the shows in Madison! Humans, wear your best cat attire and win!
Here is how it works:   
1. Dress up in your most CATtastic outfit, either as a cat or all that lovely and fabulous cat themed fashion you have been dying to wear at a show like ours. (Humans only, don’t bring your cat please.) 
2. Before (and possibly after) the show, if you are asked your name and phone number and to have your picture taken that means you are entered for the contest (Don’t worry we will let you know its us!) 
3. At the end of the shows (Monday day) we will pick the best three outfits.   
Prizes are a random assortment of cat and Acro-cat themed goodies valued at 3rd place:$25, 2nd place: $50, and 1st place $75!  You have to be present at the show, no internet photo entries!  Meeeow!!!

The Amazing Acro-cats Featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats are a troupe of REAL performing house cats. The Acro-cats experience all started with Chief Executive Human (CEH for short) and animal trainer Samantha Martin. She has not only rescued her own pets, but also has found happy homes for over 200 homeless cats and kittens. Using the magic of clicker training (a stress-free positive reinforcement method) Samantha and the cats take their newfound amazing abilities on the road, and tour the nation’s stages in the infamous Acro-cat bus! A portion of the proceeds always benefits our mobile foster and rescue efforts.   They have cats riding skateboards, jumping through hoops, and Alley, our rising star, has even leapt into the Guinness Book of World Records, holding the record for the longest cat jump!  The finale is the ONLY ALL-CAT BAND IN THE ENTIRE WORLD – Tuna and the Rock Cats! The current band lineup features Oz on guitar, Asti on drums, Nue on keyboard, and NOW some brand new members: Ahi and Albacore on cowbell and woodblocks, Buggles on trumpet, and even a chicken – Cluck Norris – rockin’ the tambourine!  “I can die happy now!” an audience member has claimed after seeing the band. Featured on national TV shows like the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, their most recent appearance was the 2017 Puppy Bowl broadcast on Animal Planet. Tuna and the Rock Cats did the half-time honors with a performance from Kitty Gaga in her vegan meat dress! We are pleased to announce that we are partnered with Madison Cat Project. A portion of our ticket sales will be benefiting their cause.

VIP Ticket holders will be first in line for the Meet and Greet directly following the performance!
