Join the Wildlife Puppeteers for a New Hippo Show

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park will be presenting a new series of Wildlife Puppeteers’ plays on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 2:00 pm in the Discovery Center inside the Wildlife Park. Regular park admission applies for the January 21, 2017 play.

The Wildlife Puppeteers will also be presenting this play in the Florida Room in the Visitor Center on Saturday, April 15, 2017 starting at 9:15 am following the park’s Spring EGG-stravaganza egg hunt event. There is no charge to attend the April 15, 2017 puppet play in the Florida Room.

The title of the new series of plays is “This is your life…Lu, the hippopotamus!” The puppet play is based on the 1950s television show. Lu’s family and friends, past and present, join in celebrating his uniqueness.

We invite you to join us in singing hippo songs, laugh with us as Lu remembers his life, back to when he was a Californian. Meet Lu’s mother, Lotus, and Susie, the donkey, his BFF, and Vicky, his volunteer friend. You won’t want to miss this loving tribute to one of our park’s legends.
