For Immediate Release:

Cats in hats to replace cancan show at Diamond Tooth Gerties

DAWSON CITY, YT – April 1, 2016

Klondike Visitors Association (KVA), is thrilled to announce that the contract for the 2016 Diamond Tooth Gerties Gambling Hall show will feature feline friends.

“Cats and the Klondike have a storied history that goes hand in hand” says Executive Director, Gary Parker, “It’s a purrfect fit”.

Starting May 13, 2016, three nightly shows will run seven days a week featuring a variety of kittens and cats in Gold Rush themed hats and attire.

Replacing Gertie as master of ceremonies will be Daisy, who has starred in such YouTube hits as “Cat chases laser pointer” and “Cat gets into the trash can”.

TNT Dynamite Stage Productions came up with the idea throughout the winter: “The training has actually been much easier with these cats than some of the former stars we’ve had on stage” says producer Terrie Turai.

Dawson City Humane Society has raised an eyebrow, accusing the Klondike Visitors Association of animal abuse. “This is a catastrophe” says Katie Pearse, President of the local branch.
