Roaring Reviews of Easter Production

April 20, 2018

The last curtain went down on South Hill Park’s Easter production, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure, to thunderous applause from audience members and critics alike. Have a read of some of the roaring reviews we’ve received:

Alex the Lion struts his stuff

“Director, Mark Hooper and his team captured the exuberance, colour, fun and excitement of the original Dreamworks movie and enhanced it with this musical extravaganza for all ages. […]the ensemble cast, including the wonderful penguins, certainly put a smile on the faces of an appreciative audience and the standing ovation was well deserved.” – Maidenhead Advertiser

The penguins smile and wave…

“Who needs the West End when you have this little beauty on your doorstep. Amazing show once again.” – Tanya, Facebook

“Absolutely outstanding, bursting with energy and fun. Such an incredible show and an amazing cast and crew.” – Derek, Twitter

“Our four year old was so excited […] and loved every minute. She has renamed her lion teddy Alex!” – Leigh-Ann, Facebook


King Julien has a moment of genius!

“There were fantastically authentic and caricature costumes, cleverly adjustable props such as multitasking palm fronds, and beautifully majestic backdrops. The packed house at South Hill Park was in raptures and we all got up to clap, dance and generally join in as soon as allowable.” – Henley Standard
