Get ready to move it, move it… to the Comedy Theatre! The beloved family show, Madagascar — The Musical, is coming to Melbourne in January 2023. All of our favourite friends from the animated movie will escape the zoo and roam freely on stage. Expect colourful sets, world-class puppets, adventure and fun new songs. Madagascar — The Musical will delight audiences in Melbourne from January 4 to 15.
Madagascar – The Musical
Adapted from the hit 2005 DreamWorks animation, the musical revolves around a group of zoo animals who find themselves in the jungles of Madagascar and must adjust to living in the wild. This hilarious adaptation has already performed to sold-out audiences across the UK and New Zealand. It comes to Melbourne after taking over Sydney in December.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing our first theatre production to Australia, with one of our favourite family titles — Madagascar – The Musical,” said producer David Hutchinson, CEO, The Path Entertainment Group. “We’ve loved producing this show all over Europe and Asia and have had hundreds of thousands of patrons enjoy being swept up in the adventures of Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria – based on the well-loved Dreamworks movies.”
Just like the movie, you’ll follow along the adventures of your crack-a-lackin’ friends, Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo.
After playing in Melbourne, the show will then move on to Perth’s Crown Theatre.
Tickets for the Melbourne season are on sale now.
