More info:

The Imago Theatre welcomes Samantha Martin and her Amazing Acro-Cats as they stretch across Portland. Purr-formances begin June 26th through June 29th, 2014. General admission tickets are $24 and are available at

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 EXISTENCE 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.

We made #1 of the top ten for Austin Chronicles best of 2013 list!

    Oh. My. Gosh. Yes. PLEASE. :)

  4. Bonnie Davidoff June 16, 2014 at 12:18 pm #

    I love my cats dori and gertie so much. Gertie is learning to fetch as we speak. She also uses the couch ad her kitty cat launching pad. Would be great to see experts at work!

  5. Gary! June 16, 2014 at 1:10 pm #

    I have to go because I love kittehs!

  6. Kathy Rankin June 16, 2014 at 3:51 pm #

    I saw a cat show in Orlando, Florida at SeaWorld. It was amazing and
    I would like to see this one to see how the two compare. The show I
    saw in Orlando was a mix of cats, dogs, a rat even…It was so amusing
    and funny. I tried to take a few pictures but I think a video is better
    for something like this. I would really enjoy going to this and I think
    my husband would too since he is a cat lover like me. The white cat
    playing drums reminds me of our Princess. Please pick me thanks!

  7. Brian Hines June 16, 2014 at 4:12 pm #

    First the cat video festival and now this?! So awesome. Sounds awesome pick me!

  8. jenny June 16, 2014 at 4:52 pm #

  10. sara June 17, 2014 at 11:37 am #

    Yes on so many levels! I have a crazy cat lady friend that I always make fun of, this would be my way of showing her I still love her :)

  11. Jennifer June 17, 2014 at 1:37 pm #

    I’m two months into a new relationship with a woman who is MAD about her kitty. If I scored these tix, I just might have a chance to score a place in her heart! PLEASE help me out!!!! I adore her and her kitty cat too!

  12. Lisa June 17, 2014 at 2:56 pm #

    I would love to see this! I missed the internet cat film festival this year but this would make up for it!

  13. Grant June 18, 2014 at 11:51 am #

    What!? best thing ever.

  14. Jamie June 18, 2014 at 1:18 pm #

  17. Sasha June 19, 2014 at 12:26 am #

    Omg! Epic!

  18. Alyssa G June 19, 2014 at 9:18 am #

    I wanna go right meow!

  19. Lucy Rose June 19, 2014 at 3:13 pm #

    To say why I want to go to Acro-cats seems redundant, but I’ll say it anyway: There are acrobatic cats.

  20. Colleen June 19, 2014 at 3:25 pm #

    Oh my god. This event is what I dream about every night. Please give me tickets.

  21. Heather June 19, 2014 at 3:45 pm #

    I want to win because I’ve never heard of the world’s all-cat band until now and it sounds absolutely amazing! Cats are the best!

  22. Nancy June 19, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    Some of the comments are cracking me up…..but I agree…who WOULDN’T want to see something as sublime as kitties doing this fun and fascinating feats! I’d be the only one on my block to tell this story. Pick me! Thanks!!

  23. Emma malone June 19, 2014 at 3:59 pm #

    crazy cat lady here needing a cat fix!

  24. Josh June 19, 2014 at 4:05 pm #

    My friend is obsessed with cats. I’d love to take her to this performance on a nice Caturday afternoon :)

  25. Linda June 19, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

    First, my boyfriend would crack up because he is a tough guy who has unadmittedly bonded to my kitty, Shugga. I think he’d secretly adore this show and I would outwardly be excited about this! Please choose us! What a memory!

  26. Austen June 19, 2014 at 4:20 pm #

    My sister-in-law will die when she hears about this!

  27. Allison H. June 19, 2014 at 4:24 pm #

    My 3 year old is crazy about cats. She would be super excited; and probably end up being a sideshow.

  28. Eric June 19, 2014 at 4:57 pm #

    My son would love to see this. My dog would not be impressed, though.

  29. Ron T June 19, 2014 at 4:59 pm #

    I’m a cat lover or is it, my cat is a human lover? In any regard, he’s hung around now for
    14 years. I’ve enjoyed the relationship.
    Please, I need to see this and I’ll bring my 77 yr old mother too. Her birthday is 6/22

  30. bc June 19, 2014 at 5:33 pm #


  31. panda June 19, 2014 at 6:51 pm #

  32. anniie June 19, 2014 at 7:01 pm #

    I am that silly person who gets her kicks from LOL cats. This would make my year.

  33. Sara Goldman June 19, 2014 at 8:29 pm #

    My kid would LOVE to see this. He is all about the cats.

  34. Andrea June 19, 2014 at 8:55 pm #

    I totally want to see this. I think this would be a great goofy date night show.

  35. Dave G. June 19, 2014 at 9:18 pm #

  36. John June 19, 2014 at 9:55 pm #

    Our kids are cats and we are both in our 30’s. How crazy is that?

  37. Alicia Tadema June 19, 2014 at 10:21 pm #

    Oh my!!!! This show looks like so much fun!

  38. Miranda T June 19, 2014 at 10:41 pm #

    What if I tell you a joke? Will you give us tickets?

    Q: What do you get when you cross a cat with a lemon?
    A: A sourpuss!

    Ok, I’m probably not gonna win.

  39. Sallie June 20, 2014 at 8:23 am #

    Perfect for my daughter’s birthday!

  40. Katie Robinson June 20, 2014 at 9:15 am #

    I LOVE cats. All cats, but black cats are my favorite. I would LOVE to see this!


  41. Amy June 20, 2014 at 10:01 am #

    Are cats more than just criminals? I need to see it to believe it. Are cats really trainable? Who’s in charge here, people or acro cats?

  42. Holly June 20, 2014 at 3:34 pm #

    This would be so cool to take my son to see. We are cat people.

  43. Miyuki June 20, 2014 at 6:00 pm #

    This is just amazing! Is this even possible? train cats? I want to see it to believe it!

  44. Kelli June 20, 2014 at 6:32 pm #

    Omg a cat band???? I need to see this with my own eyes!!! Sounds so amazing

  45. Reid June 20, 2014 at 9:21 pm #

    Last weekend I took a good and long look in the mirror. It seemed that my life was falling apart. I lost my job, my girlfriend, and thought to myself, “what else is next, an all cat band taking the world by storm?” Then I came across this post and weeped silently to myself. I want to go so I can meet the cats in person and thank them for showing me that anything is possible if you work hard enough and make sure your claws don’t get too long.

  46. valerie June 21, 2014 at 9:37 pm #

    Maybe there’s hope for my brood!

  47. Anna Peeples June 21, 2014 at 10:39 pm #

    This would be the best birthday present ever for my twin girls!

  48. Pedro Cruz June 21, 2014 at 10:45 pm #

    Must see these cats! Have seen so many things since moving to the US but never a cat rock band!

  49. Stephanie June 23, 2014 at 1:05 pm #

    Whaaaat I must go!

  50. Megan June 23, 2014 at 3:15 pm #

    Oh man, I would litter-ally love you fur-ever if I won tickets to this!

  51. Jaime June 23, 2014 at 11:07 pm #

    Lions and tigers and kittens, oh my! Okay, maybe not lions and tigers, but acro-cats and a cat band named Tuna sounds even better!

  52. Gigi June 24, 2014 at 10:41 am #

    I’m a crazy cat lady with four cats! I’d love to see this!!

  53. Heather June 24, 2014 at 3:13 pm #

    I have dreamed of the day I could see the acro-cats! Perhaps the day is coming soon!

  54. Brett June 24, 2014 at 6:14 pm #


    You have cat to be kitten me right meow!!!

    I. Must. Go.

    =( ‘ . ‘ )= I
    I `[]“\ /

  55. Colleen June 25, 2014 at 12:18 am #

    Perfect timing! My 8-1/2 y.o. daughter & I are venturing over the mountains from Bend for mostly a “working weekend” in Portland 6/27-6/30; this amazing event would delight my daughter beyond description (she is an animal lover to the core) & provide much needed respite & laughter amid a challenging season. My girl is currently taking care of a neighbors’ sick cat for 2 weeks & knows all the pets in our small neighborhood (before we even meet the owners)! Oh to watch my sweet one full of joy, laughing & commenting on all the acro-cat performers would be salve to my soul. With hope…

  56. Elise June 25, 2014 at 8:49 am #

    It’s so crazy wonderful I can hardly stand it! My family needs to see the Acro-Cats!

  57. Jess June 25, 2014 at 11:13 am #

    My boyfriend, who has never really experienced Portland (he’s from Boston), is flying into town this weekend. I am DYING to take him to see a cat circus !

  58. Lori Bonner June 25, 2014 at 8:15 pm #

    We love kitties so much but can’t have any where we live. We grow catnip in our garden just to share with the neighbor cats. At first they were kind of skittish but now that we gave them fresh catnip they come running every time we go outside. It is so fun to watch the cats get high on fresh catnip. They roll around on it and purr like crazy.

  59. Carson June 25, 2014 at 9:21 pm #

    Cat circuses exist. And I am just finding out now.
    That is why I need to go to this.

  60. Rich Brown June 25, 2014 at 10:52 pm #

    My daughter just turned 6 years old and saw the ad for this. She wants to go so badly. It would be something she would remember forever.

  61. Brianna June 26, 2014 at 9:19 am #

    I’m a crazy cat lady. I MUST attend the cat circus. Please, pick me.

  62. Robin June 26, 2014 at 9:49 am #

    I have been trying to get a date with a wonderful woman who loves cats as much as I do; one of only many things we have in common. IF I win these tickets I KNOW she and I will have our first date. Don’t you want to help me out here?

  63. Mr. Ezel June 26, 2014 at 11:06 am #

    I want to be there meow!!! Can I take my kitty to watch her idols?

    My boyfriend and I would LOVE to attend this amazing acro-cats show because we are absolutely infatuated with cats! We have two of our very own (Spaghetti & Chalupa Batman) that we have rescued, and we love them so much! It would be one of the best dates that we have ever been on if we were able to go to this amazing, and spectacular event, and since we have just recently become Oregonians, what better way to celebrate our move with this awesome show! We hope that you pick us to be able to go to this show, we (and our cats) would be extremely ecstatic!

  67. Lisa June 26, 2014 at 1:47 pm #

    I’m dying to go to the show this weekend!

  68. Cole June 26, 2014 at 2:06 pm #

  69. Anna June 26, 2014 at 3:00 pm #

    My husband was just encouraging me to go last night when I told him a friend had invited me but that I had declined due to the price. thanks for your consideration!

  70. Damian June 26, 2014 at 3:02 pm #

    I am “sharing” this on FB ASAP!

  71. Si Llage June 26, 2014 at 3:04 pm #

    My jaw dropped when I saw this cat band was even a thing. I think I need to see this to believe this much feline fabulousness can exist on one stage.

  72. Chris June 26, 2014 at 3:13 pm #

    I’d love to take my cat to this!

  73. ptermclean June 26, 2014 at 3:15 pm #

    Have to go to this once-in-a-lifetime event…or maybe once-in-nine-lifetimes :D

  77. Janie Scott June 26, 2014 at 3:33 pm #

    I’ve heard that cats can be trained I do amazing things… I’d like to see it.

  78. Yaz June 26, 2014 at 3:57 pm #

    OMG!!! I know I found this late but I really need you to pick me for this one…It would make my month…Maybe even my year…I love cats and my precious love just passed away a while back and this would really cheer up both me and my mom :)

    Crossing my fingers…Or paws :)

  85. Marco June 26, 2014 at 4:53 pm #

    My late pet…THE PUSSTER… appeared in a dream and told me to do this.

  86. Frank Byers June 26, 2014 at 5:19 pm #

    Great idea!

  87. Amanda Hudson June 26, 2014 at 6:30 pm #

  88. Tara June 26, 2014 at 6:58 pm #

  89. julie fink June 26, 2014 at 6:59 pm #

    O…M…Kitty! I’m a musician, and the Acro Cats are musicians, and I’ve been wanting to see these amazing krazykats for YEARS! I’m sure the price is well worth it but please help a catwoman out…
    And if you don’t let me win then please consider the giving them to my pal the great Terry Currier- he needs a break from working like 14 hours a day and like me, he LOVEs those kittykats!!

  106. Robin Brantley June 27, 2014 at 10:14 am #

    OH YEAH- I forgot to say:

  107. Georgia June 27, 2014 at 10:25 am #

    This show sounds incredible! What an amazing and fun evening this would be. Who ever heard of a cat band? I am intrigued – can’t wait to see this.

  108. Amy June 27, 2014 at 11:05 am #

    By the time I heard of this all the shows were sold out! I am still hurting from missing the Internet Cat Video festival this year – would love to go to this and get my performing cat fix.

  109. Devon June 27, 2014 at 11:25 am #

    I am the biggest cat nerd in the world! This show would make all of my wildest dreams come true! Thank you for taking my nerd-dom to the next level.

  110. Megan June 27, 2014 at 11:26 am #

    I have tried to win many things on this website, but I can say without a doubt that I am the most excited for the possibility of winning these tickets out of everything I’ve ever seen offered here. Who needs free tickets to a show when you could win tickets to a cat circus????

  111. Ace Waters June 27, 2014 at 12:18 pm #

    My son was supposed to go with his aunt and she dropped the ball and he is devastated. He is 3.5 and loves cats so much. It would mean the world if he could go.

  112. Marcie Holmes June 27, 2014 at 1:55 pm #

    I had no idea this existed.. I love cats and the circus. Dying to see this!

  113. Stephanie June 27, 2014 at 3:56 pm #

    I desperately want to see this! My boyfriend just heard about it today and all of the shows are sold out now.

    I NEED to go to the kitty circus.

    I’m not kitten, please give me some tickets right meow!

  114. Carolyn June 27, 2014 at 6:04 pm #

    I saw this show once a couple years ago and it was amazing.

  115. Lisa June 27, 2014 at 7:03 pm #

    Cats can be trained? I’ve got to see it to believe it! That’s my reason for wanting to go.

  116. Heather June 27, 2014 at 9:12 pm #

    You gotta be kitten me right meow! It would be the best time!

  117. Nathan June 28, 2014 at 12:37 pm #

    Wow. Just got back into town and my cat crazy daughter wants to take her friend. 4yr olds head will explode! Please let us win tickets for the 5pm show today, June 28th. Thank you.

  118. Melaney June 29, 2014 at 2:19 pm #

    I want to see these circus kitties because my cat Meowvin is too fat to do tricks and instead shoots poops out when he gets excited. I guess that’s a trick…. I WANT TO GO!
