Madagascar - A Musical Adventure - Logo.jpg

Join The Great Equalizer this winter for some family fun at the theatre! Jill Girard and Keith Smith are bringing to life (for the very first time on stage at The Peoples Theatre) the popular Madagascar – A Musical Adventure, providing parents and children with some fun family-friendly entertainment to take us into spring. It’s basically guilt-free screen time, guys! #bliss

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.  

Based on the smash DreamWorks animated film, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure follows all of your favourite 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.

Alex the Lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York's Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends — Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo — have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them.

But Marty’s not content with the life that’s been handed to him; he lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape — with the help of some prodigious penguins — to explore the world,

Filled with some outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!” ;-)
