Event Details

A South Hill Park Production of


A Musical Adventure

Based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture

Original Music and Lyrics by George Noriega & Joel Someillan
Book by Kevin Del Aguila

South Hill Park Arts Centre’s Easter production returns by popular demand. This year promises to be bigger and better than ever. From the creatives who brought you Seussical – The Musical (2017) expect great toe-tapping music, larger than life characters, big thrills and probably the best show you’ll see this Easter!

Take a journey out of the zoo and onto the stage with your favourite crack-a-lackin’ friends from the blockbuster DreamWorks film.

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 the 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.

Filled with outlandish characters, adventures galore and an upbeat score, Madagascar will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”
