Jojo’s Backyard Safari presented by Smithsonian Associates Discovery Theater on Tour

Thursday, May 9, 2019

The Publick Playhouse is pleased to present the GEICO Gecko Series, a series of midweek matinees for youth generously supported by the GEICO Philanthropic Foundation. GEICO Gecko Series matinees are free to qualifying Title 1 schools, giving young people the opportunity to experience outstanding performances at the Publick Playhouse. Educators, look for the GEICO Gecko that identifies the performances and call Group Sales at 301-277-1710 to reserve your space.

It’s time for high adventure as Jojo goes on the lookout for all kinds of fascinating creatures in the wilds of his very own yard. What will he find hidden in plain sight? Come along on the trek as we learn, create, and play in this musical mini-travelogue about the hidden natural world close to home.

This is a new production from the Smithsonian Associates Discovery Theater on Tour and was created in partnership with DC Public Schools Early Childhood Education Office, and funded by the Nora Roberts Foundation. Discovery Theater is your source for live performances that celebrate the rich diversity of our region and our world.
