World-famous Peking Acrobats Return to Nashville

The Amazing Peking Acrobats return to the General Jackson Showboat® in Nashville, Tenn., beginning March 14, 2008. 

This elite troupe leaves audiences spellbound by the graceful athleticism of their ancient folk art, acrobatics. Beginning this spring, guests can take in the acrobats’ thrilling performances on the General Jackson’s popular Midday Cruises. Show tickets will also include a fresh, exotic lunch menu served in “bottomless bowls” featuring Shanghai Salad, Yank Sing Lemon Chicken, Odon Noodles in Miso Broth. 

The exciting new menu is the creation of Executive Chef Christopher Brown, the new Director of Food and Beverage for the General Jackson Showboat. "I am so excited to be able to bring my many years of culinary experience to this Nashville icon," said Brown. "Our menus will be created based on the feedback from our guests, and will be reflective of the tastes and trends of our customers. In fact, the culinary experience during the Peking Acrobats cruises will be a delicious adventure.”

After lunch, the Peking Acrobats will take the stage, tumbling and balancing in their brightly colored costumes. Accentuated by exotic music, the acrobats transform 2000-year-old traditions of agility and grace into a modern-day kaleidoscope of entertainment and wonder. Guests will find it hard to believe that these amazing acrobatic maneuvers are performed on a moving showboat during virtually all kinds of weather.

“It's all about making sure we deliver memorable experiences that our guests will always cherish,” said Dennis Schnurbusch, general manager of the showboat. "The Peking Acrobats offer a unique entertainment option during the day that is family friendly. And we thought our captain had some interesting moves! For local folks, or out-of-town visitors, the Peking Acrobats are too exciting to miss."
