Madagascar the Musical to Launch 12-Week National Tour
Madagascar, the hit DreamWorks animated franchise, is now a live stage musical that will embark on a 12-week tour national tour this spring. The show will travel to venues across the country from April 8-July 1, opening on "National Zoo Lovers Day" at the Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley, Colorado.
As described by press materials, "Madagascar the Musical features everyone's 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. Complete with high-energy dance numbers and plenty of comedic shenanigans, this story of friendship, hope, and adventure will leave audiences with no choice but to 'Move It, Move It!'"
Kevin Del Aguila pens the book, with original music and lyrics by George Noriega and Joel Someillan. Directed by Kirk Jameson, the cast features Gary Paul Bowman (Alex), Sterling McClary (Marty), Maria Norris (Gloria), James Silverstein (Melman), Steven Makropoulos (King Julien), Jordan Taylor (Rico/Lyn/US Gloria), Katie Whittemore (Private/Mort/US Candy), Alex Burnette (Skipper/Maurice), Randy Campo (Mason/Lars), Anna Telfer (Candy/Kowalski/US Gloria), Niko Kaim (Swing), and Ryan Koch (Swing).
