The sheer amount of energy that jugglers Tony Pezzo, Wes Peden and Patrik Elmnert put into a single performance of Water on Mars could probably be used to power a small town. For a week or so. The occasionally color-coded, sometimes piñata-smashing, randomly backflip-throwing and always invigorating juggling patterns of this trio leave audiences in a preposterous state of joyful being. Don’t miss out on this extreme juggle party.

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.
We are proud to announce we will be partnered with https://novacatclinic.com/client-resources/chris-griffey-memorial-fund/ Chris Griffey Feline Memorial Fund. These funds will be used to help foster kittens at risk with veterinary services and adoption services. The funds are also used to help cat owners with financial hardships.
