Coming up in February 2024… Enjoy a fun-filled adventure with some favourite crack-a-lackin’ animal friends who are making their way across oceans and seas from their delightful home in New York’s Central Park Zoo for Madagascar the Musical at Manchester Opera House.

Alex the lion king takes centre stage at New York’s Central Park Zoo. He’s pretty content with his life, along with his best pals – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo. They all live together in wondrous and blissful captivity with delicious meals on the regular and a constantly admiring public audience. What more could they want?

Uh-oh, it turns out Marty the zebra wants more. He’s becoming restless and bored, and one day, a sense of adventure and curiosity overwhelms him. Marty, with the help of some prodigious penguins – escapes from Central Park Zoo and sets off to explore the world, which is wilder and more wonderful than he could have ever imagined!

Embark on a heartwarming journey with Alex, Marty, Melman, Gloria, and the comical penguins as they bring the stage to life in this unforgettable musical adventure. Packed with quirky characters, a colourful set and an uplifting (and very catchy) soundtrack, you’ll be swept away, singing along and tapping those toes to the irresistible rhythm of “Move It, Move It!” alongside other fantastic tunes.

This heartwarming production really is not to be missed. We recommend you book now to give you something to look forward to in 2024. Trust us, you’ll be in for a wild ride with this one!
