Do your kids love the Madagascar series of movies? Then, they will adore the Madagascar: A Musical Adventure at The Rose Theater this month.

Get ready to MOVE IT! MOVE IT! with all their favorite characters including, Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, Melman the Giraffe and the famous lemur, King Julien. You will even meet the silly penguins, who are always plotting their escape.

This lively musical follows a similar storyline as the original movie. The animal friends embark on an exciting expedition that takes them from the cozy comfort of the Central Park Zoo to the wild and mysterious Madagascar. Follow their adventures as they try to navigate the new environment and encounter lemurs and fossas. The stress of being in the wild will test Alex and Marty’s friendship. Will the zoo animals and their friendships survive during their adventures?

This live performance had catchy tunes that had kids singing along (especially King Julian’s “I like to move it, move it”.) Madagascar: A Musical Adventure is action packed and full of laughs for both kids and adults.
