LIVE PRESENTATION OF HIT PBS SHOW
WILD KRATTS LIVE!
BRINGS ADVENTURE TO LIFE ON STAGE AT
THE MERRIAM THEATER
MARCH 4-5, 2016
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Philadelphia, February 10, 2016) –– It’s off ‘to the creature rescue’ at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts when Wild Kratts Live! comes to the Merriam Theater on Friday, March 4 and Saturday, March 5. This live production, based on PBS’ hit animated show, stars Emmy Award-nominated brothers Martin Kratt and Chris Kratt in their creature power suits as they confront a comic villain and get into a bit of mischief while working to protect the animals of the creature world.
“Martin and Chris seamlessly combine action, adventure, and education in this innovative show,” said Anne Ewers, President & CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “Their imaginative stage presentation gives the Kratt brothers the ability to present important subject matter to young audiences while affording children the opportunity to share in their mission to save animals.”
Wild Kratts Live! was created for the stage by the minds of Martin Kratt and Chris Kratt, creators of the Emmy Award-winning Zoboomafoo, Kratts’ Creatures, and Be the Creature. The Kratts brothers’ national tour has drawn tens of thousands of creature-crazy kids and their families together to experience this interactive, nature-themed spectacular. The national tour, in association with the Kratt Brothers Creature Hero Society, together with the kids, has successfully protected critical wildlife habitats through the creation of nature reserves.
Other upcoming shows in the Kimmel Center’s Family Discovery Series include The Sound of Music(March 15-20) and Compagnia Finzi Pasca La Verità (May 13-14).
