Kohl’s Wild Theater starts 6th season at Milwaukee zoo


Kohl’s Wild Theater, a partnership between Kohl’s Cares® and the Zoological Society of Milwaukee, will start its sixth season at the Milwaukee County Zoo on May 28.  The staged plays and other theatrical offerings are made possible by a $1.5 million multi-year grant from Kohl’s Cares, the philanthropic program of Kohl’s.

The four Kohl’s Wild Theater professionally staged plays include:

  • The Wonderful Lizard of ooZ, a performance that highlights the importance of keeping pet frogs in their terrariums.
  • The Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Bees, an interactive play that uncovers clues about a yellow-banded bumblebee.
  • The Treasure of the Sea, an ocean adventure that educates families about the importance of eating sustainable seafood.
  • Journey to the Rich Coast, a musical migration that follows the path of two Wisconsin birds.

Kohl’s Wild Theater performances are free to all zoo attendees. Kids that attend each show — as well as interactive skits performed at various exhibits — can get a KWT “passport” stamped and receive a prize.

Kohl’s Wild Theater performances run Saturday, May 28, through Monday, Sept. 5, with four different 15-minute shows daily.
