The brand new adventure show, DreamWorks Madagascar Live! will be bounding into Birmingham's LG Arena from 18-20 January 2013.
Everyone's favourite Madagascar characters will star in a live theatrical show based on the blockbuster DreamWorks Animation franchise, reliving the fun and humour of the animals and their escapades, brilliantly recreated in an arena production of lively storytelling, dance and music, including the hit song 'Move It, Move It'.
Audiences of all ages will love the wild and action-packed adventure as Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and the plotting penguins escape from their home at New York's Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien's Madagascar.
This celebration of friendship is brought vividly to life by imaginative sets and costumes, joyous dance numbers and spectacular new songs bringing West End values to the arena environment. A cast of 25 characters take the audience on a journey from Central Park Zoo all the way to the beaches of Madagascar in a song-filled show for the whole family.
Bill Damaschke, Chief Creative Officer for DreamWorks Animation, said today:
"I could not be more delighted that the characters of Madagascar will be taking to the stage in the UK in 2013. The show that we have created, and that is being presented by Stage Entertainment Touring Productions brings together all the energy, wit and fun of the films to make an inventive entertaining live experience. Along with the classic track 'Move It, Move It', we have added a selection of new songs, along with sets and costumes, dance and movement that bring the whole experience to life in spectacular fashion."
Caspar Gerwe CEO Stage Entertainment Touring Productions, said today:
"Family members of all ages will love this live staging of DreamWorks Animation's Madagascar. A perfect treat for everyone - the show entertains, delights and amuses in equal measure. Don't miss it!"
