BROCTON - How can a rain forest come to town? It's something that has to be seen to believe.
On Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013, the Brocton elementary school will be transformed into a tropical rain forest. Touring under the name "Live on Stage, The Rain Forest," not only will students think they are right in the middle of the tropical rain forest with the beautiful sounds and sights of the Amazon region, they will also see exotic birds, kinkajous, jungle cats, monkeys and snakes.
It all started as a dream for founder and current director Mike Kohlrieser. In the 1980's, Kohlrieser and his wife, Marica, became increasingly aware of problems in the tropical rain forests. Using his already developed skills as an animal trainer and state entertainer, Kohlrieser wanted to educate young and old alike about these animals facing possible extinction.
Founder and current director of Understanding Wildlife, Inc., Mike Kohlrieser will be putting on a comedy animal show at the Brocton elementary school on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013, at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
In 1992, the non-profit organization Understanding Wildlife, Inc., was created. The goal is simple education and inspiring individuals to get involved and make this a better world for all, including animals, to live in.
This fascinating comedy animal show will only be at the Brocton elementary school on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013, for two shows at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 per person and will be available at the door.
