Animal lovers and kids of all ages will want to attend a program by the Columbus Zoo Animal Ambassadors at The Murphy Theatre at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 14 — with $1 pizza slices and face painting at 12:30 p.m., and a costume parade at 1:30 p.m.
Presented by Air Transport Services Group, in coordination with Donatos Pizza, tickets for this program are just $8 for adults for main-floor seating. Because of the generous sponsors, up to five children (ages 14 and under) are free with each adult who attends.
Coupons for $3 off an adult ticket may be picked up at the Wilmington Donatos; or bring a Donatos receipt to the Murphy box office for $3 off. That means one adult and five children could potentially attend the zoo program for a total of $5 with coupon/Donatos receipt.
Zoo handlers will bring animals to share and will talk about their behavior and habitat. Children who wear a costume (including those with face paint) will receive a free coupon for a small Donatos pizza. Those in attendance may be eligible for a drawing for four tickets to the Columbus Zoo.
This is an opportunity to see zoo animals up close in Wilmington. The show is both educational and enjoyable for all ages.
