Do you like to MOVE IT MOVE IT? I know my kiddos do! And they loved moving it with the Madagascar Live cast!
They’re live and on the loose, all of your favorite characters from the beloved Madagascar movie are out of the zoo and on the stage in Madagascar Live! You’ll have a great night with some of your favorite characters like Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and of course those crazy penguins as they escape from New York’s Central Park Zoo.
Madagascar live is traveling to over 70 cities across both the United States and Canada. This cute, fun and adventurous stage show is for audiences of all ages and features the stars of the popular movie Madagascar, including Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and many more! It’s a night the entire family will enjoy.
I wasn’t too sure how the girls were going to react at first. They were excited, but knowing this was a stage show, and that the character’s wouldn’t be just ‘animals’ or ‘costumes’ but would include being able to see the actors themselves, I wondered if they’d be disappointed. That was NOT the case at all though!
The actors played their characters so well, you almost forgot that they had ‘human faces’ rather than that of the characters! There was also a few puppets as well, my youngest daughters favorite being the monkey!
The costumes were amazing, the set design was great, and it was just short enough to hold the kids attention yet long enough for the adults to enjoy as well. My girls had a blast! They got up and danced, clapped, and were in awe of the storyline and characters.
The storyline does follow the original Madagascar movie and they do a great job with it. The songs are catchy, the dancing is hysterical and there’s humor for all to be had. Madagascar Live is a MUST SEE if they’re coming to a city near you!
