Madagascar – A Musical Adventure to Tour UK

Madagascar - A Musical AdventureMadagascar – A Musical Adventure to Tour UK – Opening at Wimbledon New Theatre 16th July 2018.

Go Wild! as Selladoor Worldwide and Hartshorn – Hook announce that their brand-new stage adaptation Madagascar – A Musical Adventure is coming out of the zoo and onto a stage near you, opening at Wimbledon New Theatre on 16th July 2018 prior to a UK Tour.

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 stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.

Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure follows 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.

Go wild as Matt Terry – Winner of 2016’s X-Factor is announced to play Alex The Lion in the brand-new stage adaptation of Madagascar – The Musical opening at New Wimbledon Theatre on 16 July prior to a UK Tour.

See you all there.
