Saturday, Jan. 12, 1 p.m., 4 p.m.—RUTLAND— Through the jungles of Rwanda to the savannas of Australia, Jungle Jack Hanna has explored the corners of the globe as one of the most visible and respected animal ambassadors. Now he’s bringing his stage show, “Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild Live!,” to the Paramount Theatre in Rutland on Saturday, Jan. 12 for two afternoon shows: 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

The audience will enjoy stories (from brushing a hippo’s teeth to eating with wombats) and footage from his worldwide adventures.

Of course, a visit from Jungle Jack Hanna would not be complete without an array of animals such as cheetahs, kangaroos, penguins and many more. Fans of all ages will get to learn more about these fascinating animals in an unforgettable “wild” experience that families will not want to miss.

Recognized around the country as America’s favorite zookeeper, Hanna has made countless television appearances since 1983 on shows such as “Good Morning America,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” and FOX and CNN news programs. He is the host of TV’s Emmy award-winning “Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild” and “Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown.”

Hanna is the director emeritus of the famed Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and The Wilds.

Tickets for either show are $25-$35, available at the box office, by calling 802-775-0903, or online at paramountvt.org. The Paramount Theatre is located at 30 Center St., Rutland.
