One option this summer, bound to appeal to both young and old alike, is the adorable and crazy antics of the Madagascar crew - but this time, live on stage. Presented by local musical theatre group, Musikmakers, this upbeat one hour show features a young cast, singing and dancing their way through this now, well-known story. Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins, bound onto the stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.

Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar - A Musical Adventure Jr arrives on stage just in time to provide much-needed entertainment in the middle of the longest holiday of the year. It follows the well-loved characters from the movie 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.

A January season of a children’s production has become an annual event at Riverlea Theatre, and seats sell out fast. Director Toni Garson is certain audiences will love Madagascar Jr as much as previous shows like Annie Jr, Aladdin Jr and Seussical Jr. “We have a great cast, and some of these young performers have had experience in several musicals. I’m sure that both children and adults will love this Disney classic.”

Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, Madagascar Jr. will leave audiences with no choice but to "Move It, Move It!"

Madagascar – A Musical Adventure Jr is on from January 14 – 18 at Riverlea Theatre in Hillcrest, Hamilton. There are morning, afternoon and evening performances to choose from with tickets from just $15. All information and bookings at iticket.co.nz or phone the booking office on 0508 iticket.

"Directed by Greg Hack, Zoot Suit Christmas contains musical numbers even those less inclined to shimmys and sways will find themselves tapping their feet at or nodding their heads along to.

From well-known hits such as Bon Jovi's Livin' on a Prayer, and Chumbawamba's Tubthumping, to my personal favourite, Queen's Another One Bites the Dust, the evening is a musical spectacular everyone can enjoy."
