Ellsworth High School will be transformed into a tropical rain forest on November 13 as the comedy animal show "Live on Stage, The Rain Forest" takes to the stage.
"The Rain Forest" will take one right in the middle of the tropical rain forest with the beautiful sights and sounds of the Amazon region, as one will see exotic birds, kinkajous, jungle cats, monkeys and snakes.
The show began as a dream for founder and current director Mike Kohlrieser. In the 1980's, Mike and his wife Marcia became increasingly aware of problems in the tropical rain forests. Using his already developed skills as an animal trainer and stage entertainer, Mike wanted to educate young and old alike about these animals facing possible extinction.
In 1992, the non-profit organization Understanding Wildlife, Inc. was created. The goal is simple -- educate and inspire individuals to get involved and make this a better world for us all (including the animals) to live in.
The show begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 per person and will be available at the door. Children under three years are admitted free. For more information visit www.understandingwildlife.org
