Jan 13, 2021 | University Relations staff

DUBUQUE, Iowa – University of Dubuque Heritage Center’s virtual programming for January features a cool cat and an acoustic cover band.

Pete the Cat is the latest performance to join Heritage Center’s Full-Length Features. Tickets are on sale now through Wednesday, June 30, 2021, for digital access to the performance, presented by Nashville Children’s Theatre by special arrangement with TheatreWorksUSA. A portion of each ticket purchased will benefit Heritage Center.

The performance features Pete the Cat, who never loses his cool, and Jimmy Biddle, who never strays from his routine. That is, until the groovy blue cat moves in with The Biddles for the summer. Can cat and boy ever be friends? When Jimmy draws a blank in art class, Pete’s the perfect pal to lead the mission to help Jimmy find his inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on a new adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back again in a VW Bus.

Household digital access for Pete the Cat is $19.99. It includes the full virtual performances as well as interactive and educational activities related to the show. Once purchased, the Pete the Cat rental is available for 48 hours.
