Jack Hanna’s Into The Wild Live
With his trademark khaki safari outfit, inviting Tennessee twang, and enormous collection of furry, feathered, and reptilian friends, “Jungle Jack” Hanna is a household name for most animal lovers. The famed director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has kept audiences enamored and talk-show hosts bewildered since 1981. Taking a reprieve from hosting Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown, letting snakes loose on Good Morning America, and pestering David Letterman with lemurs, Jack brings his adventure program, Into the Wild, onto the stage for an awe-inspiring and educational safari for all ages.
Showcasing an easygoing manner and a diehard passion for his craft, Jack escorts enchanted audiences through a multimedia, multispecies travelogue of his wildlife escapades. A gifted raconteur, Jack paints pictures with words as he shows video clips of his encounters with nature’s most adorable and dangerous critters, promoting his efforts to protect the world’s endangered species. The highlight of every one of Jack’s appearances is always the amazing creatures he brings to the stage, and this show promises an ark of awe, gasps, and creepy-crawlies. The roster of animals at Jack’s program is subject to change, but recent appearances have included a bald eagle, a python, a sloth, and a snickering Australian kookaburra bird. Audiences at this year’s tour have also encountered a hovering owl searching for leftover moles and a glimpse down the throat of a 10-foot alligator.
The Carolina Theatre of Durham
One of the few original theaters in Durham to remain in operation, The Carolina Theatre has endured more than 85 years of history in its quest to entertain. The venue's main room, Fletcher Hall, rose in popularity during World War II, when soldiers from Camp Butner arrived by bus to watch films on its colossal screen. In the last three decades, ongoing renovations have restored the venue to its original glory while propelling it into contemporary times with the addition of modern accoutrements, including two upstairs movie screens, stage-level dressing rooms, and landing pads on the roof for skateboard hovercrafts.
