Barry and I saw the Amazing Acro-Cats at the Port Tobacco Players Theatre in La Plata, Md., on Sunday, May 5, 2013. I had a really good time, and I thought you might like to see some of the photos.

The Amazing Acro-Cats are a traveling troupe of kitty performers who hail from Chicago. The shows in La Plata helped to benefit the Humane Society of Charles County. The society brought some adoptable cats to the theater.

The multi-talented cats demonstrated spectacular feats of feline agility and style, with assistance from their “chief human,” Samantha Martin. The show culminated with a performance from The Rock Cats, an all-kitty band. Joining the cats onstage were bowling champ, Garfield the Groundhog, and noted percussionist, Gregory Peck the chicken.

If you’re a cat lover — and I mean, who isn’t — you owe it to yourself to see the Amazing Acro-Cats when they visit your town!
