The show, “Live on Stage, The Rainforest,” will make audience members feel as if they are right in the middle of the tropical rainforest with the beautiful sounds and sights of the Amazon region. They also will see exotic birds, kinkajous, monkeys and snakes.
It all started as a dream for founder and current director Mike Kohlrieser. In the 1980s, Mike and his wife Marcia became increasingly aware of problems in the tropical rainforests. 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.
This fascinating comedy animal show will be at Main Street School for two shows: 5 and 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Tickets cost $5 per person and will be available at the door.
