The Magik Theatre presents Madagascar: a Musical Adventure, with a book by Kevin Del Aguila and original music and lyrics by George Noriega and Joel Someillan. The show is based on the Dreamworks Animation motion picture and is sponsored by The Edaren Foundation.
Madagascar will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!” Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar - A Musical Adventure follows all of your favorite 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. Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.
Director and Choreographer Heather Currie returns to The Magik Theatre after directing Junie B. Jones the Musical last summer. Heather is “so excited to return and work with the inspiring group of artists at The Magik!” She says “to create theatre for families to enjoy together is such a privilege. Madagascar - A Musical Adventure is a non-stop, zany, wild ride that centers on the importance of friendship. It’s going to be Crack-a-lackin’ fun!”
