We are in our third weekend of Earth Dayz at Rock City http://www.seerockcity.com/. We recently finished nine days at the Critter Classroom with weather ranging from the sunny 70's to snow midweek to violent thunderstorms on Friday. These thunderstorms brought down two trees near our theatre, but the crew at Rock City did a great job cleaning everything up so we could do our shows on Saturday. We are sharing the theatre with Chattanooga storyteller, Jim Pfitzer. Jim has worked with raptors in the past and tells the crowd about an eagle that returns 17 years later (it was a banded bird). The Bald Eagle was found on the ground with no apparent injuries, but was not feeling well enough to fly. However, the story has a happy ending and ultimately returns to freedom. Jim is also building, with the audience's help, a life-sized eagle nest, near the Critter Classroom. It is taking shape and looks very authentic. So, come on out, see our shows, listen to Jim's facinating story, and help with the nest. We will be there April 16th-19th and April 23rd-26th. Thanks!
