Join all of your favourite 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.

Join Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria and those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime. Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, you’ll have no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”

General information regarding Relaxed Performances

A relaxed performance is a type of theatre performance that is designed to be more accessible to people with sensory sensitivities, such as those with autism or other developmental disabilities. Relaxed performances typically have a number of features that make them different from traditional theatre performances, such as:

  • Lowered lights: The lights in the auditorium are dimmed rather than fully dark, which can be less overwhelming for people with sensory sensitivities.
  • Quieter sound: The sound effects and music in the show are typically turned down, which can help to reduce noise levels and make the show more comfortable for people who are sensitive to loud noises.
  • Talking during the show: Talking during the show is allowed at relaxed performances, which can be helpful for people who need to communicate with their companions or who need to vocalize to regulate their emotions.
  • A chill-out space: Many theatres that offer relaxed performances have a chill-out space where audience members can go if they need to take a break from the show. The chill-out space may have calming music, toys, or fidgets that can help people to relax and re-focus.

Relaxed performances are a great way for people with sensory sensitivities to enjoy theatre. They provide a more comfortable and inclusive environment where people can feel free to be themselves and enjoy the show.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind about relaxed performances:

  • It is important to check with the theatre in advance to see if they offer relaxed performances and what the specific policies are for these performances.
  • If you are bringing a child with sensory sensitivities to a relaxed performance, it is a good idea to prepare them for what to expect. You can talk to them about the different features of a relaxed performance and explain that it is okay for them to talk or move around if they need to.
  • It is also a good idea to bring noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs to a relaxed performance, in case the sound levels are still too high for your child.
