Pittsburgh has its very own cat cafe, Lawrenceville hosts an annual cat crawl, and in 2015, Nielsen dubbed us the city with the third highest number of cat ladies in the country.

Cat lovers around the region will rejoice to hear that these acrobatic superstars are crawling back into town for five feline-filled nights filled with gravity-defying feats.

If you’ve seen them entertaining audiences on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and in Animal Planet’s 2017 Puppy Bowl, you don’t want to miss the chance to see the Acro-Cats strut their stuff live.

Forget trying to herd cats, this mighty meowing crew of rescued performing house cats will show off their mad skills riding skateboards, leaping through hoops, performing with props and more. Don’t miss the absolutely fabulous feline, Alley, who holds the Guinness World Record for longest cat jump.

The show-stopping finale will feature the world’s only all-cat band. Dubbed Tuna and the Rock Cats, the caboodle features guitarist Oz, drummer Asti and keyboardist Nue, along with new members like Albacore on woodblocks, Buggles on trumpet and even Cluck Norris the chicken rocking the tambourine.

Admission includes a post-show meet-and greet-session. Proceeds will benefit Humane Animal Rescue.
