Journey to Madagascar with Theatricool.

We are into the final exciting week before Theatricool students present Madagascar Junior at The Lakeside Theatre! Costumes have been ordered and tried on – there are a plethora of penguins, lemurs and other animals hanging on rails and waiting for their performers to step into them.


If you would like to see Theatricool’s amazing children perform their socks off, they would love to show you how hard they have been working and what a talented bunch they are!


Here is a taster of the story:

Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime. Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. follows all of your 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.  Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty lets his curiosity get the better of him and makes his escape – with the help of some prodigious penguins – to explore the world.

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


Performances on 17th and 18th June 2017 at the Lakeside Theatre, Colchester. Tickets are available from http://lakesidetheatre.org.uk/events/theatricool-summer-show/
