Animal expert Jack Hanna will bring his three-time Emmy Award-winning television series to the Egyptian Theatre stage on April 21.

In this live show, Hanna takes the audience into the wild with an array of incredible animals. Fans of all ages will enjoy Jack’s stories, from brushing a hippo’s teeth to eating with wombats, and see footage of his worldwide adventures, from the jungles of Rwanda to the savannas of Australia. He also will inspire with his passion and dedication to wildlife conservation.

Audiences can expect to see approximately 15 animals in the live experience. The exact animals to appear aren’t confirmed until soon before the show since each animal must receive medical clearance, however, fans can expect to see animals such as a baby cheetah, kangaroo, baby tiger, two-toed sloth, penguin and more.

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

Reserve ticket pricing for the 2 p.m. show ranges from $27 to $37; a $7 discount is available for students and children. A limited number of VIP package tickets are available for $75, which includes an exclusive pre-show meet-and-greet with Jack Hanna and the animals.

The Egyptian Theatre is at 135 N. Second St. in downtown DeKalb.
