The Amazing Acro-Cats!

08/08/17 – Don't miss Samantha Martin and her Amazing Acro-Cats as they purrform their feats of agility. Performances start August 7th and continue through August 20th. All tickets are available at www.circuscats.com. TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE The one-hour show features over a dozen fabulous felines (all former orphans, rescues, and strays) walking tightropes, pushing carts, skateboarding, jumping through hoops, ringing bells, balancing on balls and turning on lights. NOLA, our newest addition to the troupe, will be sure to delight and amaze you with her energy and ability. We also have a new celebrity in the troupe, Alley, who was just awarded Guinness Book World Records title for longest jump made by a cat - 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 backing band really strut their stuff with their own style of original music. Cluck Norris, a chicken on cymbal and tambourine, isn't "kitten" around - she usually steals the show! Samantha Martin, Chief Executive Human (or CEH for short) of 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 talents through clicker training. The shows feature a cat or kitten learning some basic s using this method that highlights positive reinforcement. 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 even 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. Her dedication and love for these felines can be seen in each and every purrformance. A portion of every shows' ticket sales go toward cat and kitten rescue! Martin advocates adoption from local shelters and other organizations, and works with them in many ways especially by taking adoptable cats on the road, making the Amazing Cat-Bus a mobile fostering unit. Over the past four years, Martin has purr-sonally found homes for over 159 cats and kittens and continues to take cats in need and help them find their furr-ever homes. Check out this review by the Austin Chronical highlighting the Acro-Cats efforts as a Top 10 theatrical set. And this recent video!!

The Home Road: A film by Tonya Shevenell

08/25/17 – The Home Road is the first documentary project by Portland, Maine based film and marketing company, Home Ice Productions, and Tonya Shevenell. From Tonya: The Home Road is inspired by the coming-of-age story of my great-great-great grandfather, Israel Shevenell. I wish I could talk to the 19-year old who set out on foot April 1st, 1845, headed southeast from his home in Compton, Quebec; crossed the border; trudged through lingering winter snow in New Hampshire's White Mountains and deep mud in the Saco Valley; and arrived at his destination of Biddeford, Maine two weeks later. He earned $12 a month as a brickmaker in this booming coastal town; it was steady work and more money than he could make farming at home. He walked back to Quebec that fall and convinced his family to move to Biddeford with him. Israel became the city's first permanent French-Canadian settler; contributed to its growth and changed the course of Shevenell family history. In 2015, my father, Ray Shevenell, celebrated the 170th anniversary of this pioneering trek by retracing Israel's journey, walking the nearly 200 miles from Compton, Quebec to Biddeford, Maine. This walk is the foundation for The Home Road documentary film. Layered over this adventure are narrations, oral histories and interviews, photos and film, and stories; exploring the themes of migration, movement and "home". http://www.thehomeroad.com
