Guest Review
by lori morrison 

Marty, the Zebra's, 10th Birthday wish is to get out of the zoo and visit nature. Following the team of penguins with a dream to get back to Antarctica, he does just that.  Worried, his friends (Alex, Gloria, Melman and Mason) go searching for him. 

There is much adventure as they travel out of the zoo, get caught in subways of New York and wake up on a boat to Madagascar which gets overtaken by the Penguins. 

Once in Madagascar, they meet many new and interesting characters, some friendly and in need of help and some who's natural instincts are to harm them.

All characters realize just how different the wild is from the zoo and must decide if this is really what they want.

Marty, gets his 10th Birthday wish come true but is it all he thought it would be? 

Alex, the Lion is king of the zoo but does he have what it takes to be king of the jungle? Does he want to be? What will that do to his friendship with Marty and the others?

With catchy songs and fun set changes throughout, this play has something for everyone. It will be most enjoyable for the 10 and under crowd but song and dance numbers like "I like to move it, move it", will have everyone up and dancing. 

Lori Morrison is an unschooling Chicago mom who lives in LaGrange with her three kids, and a rescue dog. She is a 2nd degree black belt in TKD and a burlesque dancer, who teaches self defense and works for Edge Theatre, NFP.

It’s time to escape the zoo and head to the stage! The musical twist on the blockbuster DreamWorks motion picture, MADAGASCAR – A MUSICAL ADVENTURE, comes to life for children of all ages at Marriott Theatre for Young Audiences, 10 Marriott Drive in Lincolnshire, from October 4 to December 29, 2019. 

Audiences will join the familiar zoo escapees and embark on a truly unique and “crack-a-lackin’” adventure as each animal enjoys freedom for the very first time after spending their entire life in captivity. MADAGASCAR – A MUSICAL ADVENTURE, a theatrical interpretation of the 2005 hit film, is directed by Johanna McKenzie Miller, choreographed by Ericka Mac, with musical direction by Sam Groisser. 

Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and, of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto the stage in this musical adventure. MADAGASCAR – A MUSICAL ADVENTURE follows all of your favorite zoo 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. This special one-hour presentation for kids (and parents) of all ages is filled with larger-than-life characters, non-stop adventure, and an upbeat score that will make audiences want to “Move It, Move It!” All performances are followed by a question & answer session with the cast.
