Boasting a cast of 59 actors in grades 2-8, Prelude endeavors to put younger cast members into a large, high-profile production. Complete with special effects, incredible lighting, sets, and costumes that any Broadway show would envy, Prelude brings pure entertainment for the entire family.

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 your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime. Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture “Madagascar” – A Musical Adventure Jr. follows all of your favorite 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, adventure galore and an upbeat score, Madagascar JR. will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”


Performances are set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, at the Hartland Performing Arts Center, 9525 W. Highland Rd. Ticket prices are $10-$15, Child and Senior tickets available. Wheelchair seating and access available.
