Madagascar Jr - A Musical Adventure is based on the Dreamworks Animation Motion Picture.
First written by Kevin Del Aguila and here a musical by George Noriega and Joel Someillan.
This musical tells the tale of four best friends: Alex the lion who is the main attraction at the zoo,his best friend Marty the Zebra who longs to be free, a motherly and rather vain hippo called Gloria and an anxious giraffe, Melman.
Together with a bunch of resourceful penguins and a smug chimpanzee, Mason, they escape from New York Central Park Zoo. They end up on an island paradise: Madagascar.
The penguins destination was meant to be Antarctica, so they comandeer a ship and make their way there. Meanwhile, friendships are tested as Alex's natural instincts threaten to overpower him.
They meet colourful characters in Madagascar and unknowingly become a part of King Julien's genius plan to rid the lemurs of their native enemies, the foosa.
A heartwarming tale of friendship that also looks at themes of animals kept in captivity.
