The time is drawing near when world-renowned animal expert Jack Hanna, better known as “Jungle Jack,” visits Great Falls! And the suspense is building about which animals will make an appearance on stage with Jack at the Mansfield Theater at 7 p.m., Tuesday.   

The Great Falls Advertising Federation, better known as “Ad Club,” is bringing Hanna to Great Falls for its second annual “Celebrity Celebration.”  “Dear Abby”/Jeanne Phillips was the featured celebrity for the first “Celebrity Celebration” held last fall.

Tickets may be purchased in person or by phone, 406-455-8514 or online at

Tickets cost $25, and there also are $10-off savings coupons available for children age 12 and under at the following sponsor locations: Happy Tails Lodge, Montana Refining Co., Great Falls Teachers Federal Credit Union and Hartelius Durocher & Winter.

If purchased in group quantities of 10 or more, tickets will cost $20 each.  Seating is limited, and tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. During the evening program, children also will have the opportunity to win stuffed animals donated by Amazing Toys.

Ad Club is pleased to announce that it will donate a percentage of the event’s proceeds this year to the Animal Foundation of Great Falls, a local organization working to build the Margaret J. Maclean Animal Welfare Center, located near North Junior High School.

Hanna is one of the most visible and respected ambassadors between the human and animal worlds.  His hands-on approach and experience with wildlife has won him widespread acclaim as an author, television personality, conservationist, and Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
