UPDATE 6/3: After thoughtfully exploring our summer options from every possible angle, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel summer offsite outreach programs. The reasons for this choice are multifaceted, but primary among them are the restrictions we would have to put in place to guarantee the safety of our audiences and performers while out in the community. Please stay tuned for updates regarding our summer mainstage date opening and our school year 2020-2021 performance registration opening date.
Why do we love Kohl’s Wild Theater?
Kohl’s Wild Theater is made possible by a partnership between Kohl's, the Milwaukee County Zoo and the Zoological Society of Milwaukee. This educational and fun-filled program provides theater performances with a conservation theme, using drama, songs and puppetry. Kohl’s Wild Theater performs for children and their families not only at the Milwaukee County Zoo and but also at schools, festivals, and community events.
From Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, live performances take place four times daily at the Kohl's Wild Theater stage. You also can enjoy the spontaneity of an at-exhibit interaction with our actors during the day at various exhibits throughout the Zoo.
Throughout the year, Kohl’s Wild Theater brings live, educational, family-friendly shows to schools, libraries and various community events within a one-hour radius of the Zoo, completely free of charge.
