Madagascar the Musical comes to Tauranga

Maurice to be played by Joe Kummer, King Julien to be played by Finley Hughes and Foosa to be played by Jenny Stewart.

Trustpower Baypark is delighted to be hosting Madagascar the Musical next month.

Based on the smash-hit animated DreamWorks movie, Madagascar the Musical follows all your favourite cracka-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo. Along the way they 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. 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.

When a group of penguins decide they've had enough of the zoo and decide to escape, Marty makes a break for it too. Join him and his friends–and those hilarious, plotting penguins–as they bound onto the stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.

The international stage set, props and costumes from Madagascar the Musical’s world tour are in New Zealand with an all-star local cast of professional actors, bringing the excitement of the movie to the stage. Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, you’ll have no choice but to ‘Move It, Move It!’.

The 75-minute show runs from April 23–25, and is appropriate for children and adults alike. Tickets will be on sale soon for multiple shows over the three days via:
