Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and upbeat music, Madagascar leaves audiences no choice but to “Move It, Move It!” Join us outdoors at Brucemore’s Peggy Boyle Whitworth Amphitheater for TCR’s summer production of Madagascar – A Musical Adventure July 7-23.
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. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world. Fun for the whole family!
Book by Kevin Del Aguila. Original Music and Lyrics by George Noriega and Joel Someillan.
