MADAGASCAR – THE MUSICAL follows all the favourite crack- a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar!
Madagascar is a musical based on the 2005 DreamWorks animated film of the same name. It tells the story of a group of animal friends – a lion, a zebra, a giraffe, and a hippopotamus – who live in the Central Park Zoo in New York City. When one of the animals, a lion named Alex, becomes homesick for his native land, Madagascar, he, and his friends hatch a plan to escape from the zoo and journey to the island. Along the way, they encounter a variety of colourful characters and have a series of exciting adventures.
Young children will love Madagascar the musical because it features catchy songs, energetic dance numbers, and lovable characters. The show is full of humour and heart and has a positive message about friendship and the importance of following your dreams. Children will also enjoy the bright, colourful costumes and sets, which bring the characters and their world to life.
Madagascar the musical is now playing in Melbourne at the Comedy Theatre for two weeks only, this fun-filled family musical has performed to sold-out audiences across the UK and New Zealand. It is brought to life by imaginative and colourful sets, world-class puppets, action-packed adventure, and spectacular new songs that will leave you with no choice but to “move it move it” in the aisles! If your children haven’t been to a musical before then this is the one and it’s a great way to introduce them to stage productions.
