This all-new theatrical stage show is based on the hit animated television series Wild Kratts. Martin and Chris Kratt, stars of the Emmy-nominated Wild Kratts, step out live onstage to engage the audience in a classic Wild Kratts story. Starting off in their headquarters, the “Tortuga,” the Kratts receive a message about an animal in trouble. Always ready to help animals in need, they pull on their “Creature Power” vests and gloves and are off. The adventure doesn’t work as planned, which results in hilarious pratfalls and slapstick fun. But they press on, encountering some amazing “Wow Facts” about animals, presented via large-screen multimedia video footage, as they rescue their animal friend and return it to its natural home.

 

What: '63 Boycott Online Screening
When: February 26, 2019 - 8:00pm to February 28, 2019 - 9:00pm | Online

On October 22, 1963, more than 250,000 students boycotted the Chicago Public Schools to protest racial segregation. Many marched through the city calling for the resignation of School Superintendent Benjamin Willis, who placed trailers, dubbed ‘Willis Wagons,’ on playgrounds and parking lots of overcrowded black schools rather than let them enroll in nearby white schools. Blending unseen 16mm footage of the march shot by Kartemquin founder Gordon Quinn with the participants’ reflections today, ’63 Boycott connects the forgotten story of one of the largest northern civil rights demonstrations to contemporary issues around race, education, school closings, and youth activism. Stick around after the film for a Q&A with filmmaker Gordon Quinn.
