Youth Players – Madagascar Jr.
Instructors: 6th Street Teaching Artists
June 6 – 25, 2022
Take a journey out of the zoo and onto the stage with your favorite 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 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!”

As the vaccine is now approved for children ages 5 and up, we have updated our vaccination policy to require vaccination for participation in our programs for those ages 5 and up. If people are unable to be vaccinated due to medical conditions or sincerely held religious beliefs, they will have to provide us with a negative covid test. This would be every 2 days for performance based camps and once a week for classes that meet once or twice a week.
At this time you must be prepared to wear masks throughout the performance and intermission. We hope this is not an inconvenience but should you disagree with our cautious approach, we can issue you a credit, which can be used for future performance tickets when the crisis has abated, or a refund.
We hope you understand that the health and well being of everyone that works or visits the theater is our greatest priority and your support during these times would be extremely appreciated.
