What is a Singing Zoologist?!?!
Lucas Miller, that's who!   Mr. Miller is a singer, song-writer, scientist, and performer.  And he is coming to Midlothian on January 25th!  He brings a lot of energy to his one-man show that combines songs, puppets and zany antics, all while telling stories about animals and the sciences.  The show starts at McClatchey on the afternoon of January 25th.  He does offer books and CDs for students to purchase, but does not push them.  Look up the Singing Zoologist on the web at and check him out!
