Why See Madagascar: The Musical?

MusicalsFamily Shows

An original new musical!

Relive the fun of the DreamWorks animated motion picture! Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and the breakout stars, the Penguins will all crash the stage as they find themselves shipped off to foreign climes from their boring New York City Zoo home, only to find themselves washed up on the lemur-run island of Madagascar. What will its quirky inhabitants make of these new, naive visitors? And will the 'pansies' ever get home?

This musical is a perfect opportunity to introduce your young children to the delights of musical theater, and a great chance for bonding together - rather like Alex and co! Filled to the island brim with outlandish characters, uplifting adventure and an original upbeat score, you'll have no choice but to Move It, Move It!
