Madagascar – A Musical Adventure is at The Marriott Theatre for Young Audiences now through April 15, 2017. It’s a musical twist on the DreamWorks motion picture. It’s a musical for all ages and features actors dressed as various zoo animals. The costumes are very creative and well done and the music is upbeat and fun, with our favorite “Move It, Move It!”
Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins 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.
Costume designer (and assistant director) Jesus Perez assures that audiences will be dazzled by the unexpected costumes and innovative puppetry. “Madagascar is already an established idea, but since this is a live production and not a movie, it has opened up a world of creativity for us. This is the perfect vehicle for me as a designer to bring this fantastical world to life,” said Perez.
“Madagascar – A Musical Adventure,” an hour long performance followed by a Question & Answer session with the cast, runs most Tuesdays through Sundays at 10 a.m. with certain performances at 12:30 p.m. Visit MarriottTheatre.com or call 847.634.0200 for exact schedule, as show times and dates may vary.
