Madagascar The Musical

Take the familiar film Madagascar, add some lively music and dance numbers from an all Kiwi cast, as well as a whole lot of fun, and you’ve got yourself Madagascar – The Musical. 

Following the story of the DreamWorks Animation motion picture by the same name, the story follows Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo. Discontented with life at the zoo and curious about what exists in the great outdoors, Marty instigates a series of misadventures for the group that eventually lead them to the tropics. 

Directed by a renowned Creative Team, the star-studded cast includes Andrew Papas as Alex the Lion, LeRoi Dale Kippen as Marty the Zebra, Kristin Paulse as Gloria the Hippo, and Ben Freeth as Melman the Giraffe, along with a fabulous ensemble of an all-New Zealand cast!

Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria emerge from their comfortable home of New York’s Central Park Zoo and embark on a jaunt through many unexpected and exciting places, eventually landing smack bang in the middle of King Julien’s Madagascar. Along the way the crew encounter plotting penguins, eccentric lemurs and the wilderness. 

The show promises adorable and crazy antics from the same kooky and well-loved characters that made the film such a success. The production features original music and a talented cast of local performers. Already the stage version of this story has entertained young audiences in many cities, and will leave audiences with no choice but to "Move It, Move It!"!
