You like to ‘move it, move it’? Then be sure to see the musical “Madagascar Junior” at The Media Theatre. It’s on Saturdays at 11am and Sundays at Noon March 25 through May 21.
“Madagascar Junior” is based on the animated film and features humorous characters, lots of adventure, and an upbeat energetic score including the hit song “I Like To Move It”.
Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and, of course, those hilarious plotting penguins in the musical adventure of a lifetime. The hour long show 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.
Tim Haney portrays the role of Alex the Lion, while Roger Ricker entertains as King Julien. Others in the cast are Media Theatre students, and one parent of two student actors (Doug Henry). All other roles are double cast, allowing audiences and students ample opportunity to enjoy the “Madagascar” antics.
