In keeping with our editorial policy of informing New Orleans of all things cats-related
, we are happy to announce The Amazing Acro-Cats are returning to New Orleans in December for their annual holiday residency in the Crescent City.

America's favorite (only?) Cirque du Feline will once again thrill discerning theatergoers with 14 seasonally-themed performances at the Theater on St. Claude Dec. 1-16:
For the month of December we feature our Meowy Catmas special - Performances JUST FOR MEW ORLEANS! CelebrateChristmas(or Catmas) with us by watching cats jump through wreaths, roll an ornament, push a sleigh and performing an array of other seasonal tricks.Real rescued house cats that delight and amaze audiences of all ages.

There will also be a special appearance by The Rock-Cats (the only cat band in the entire WORLD!) playing seasonal carol selections such as "A Cat in a Manger", "Catnip Roasting on an Open Fire" and "God Rest Ye Merry Kittens" (Songs might not be performed as described.)

The show will go on without one star member of the ensemble: Tuna the Cat, who died earlier this year of cancer. (2017 has been difficult all the way around.)

Tickets are $20-$34 and a portion of ticket sales benefits the Jefferson SPCA.

To get a general idea of how these performances go and what you might expect, enjoy The Acro-Cats in their appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert:
