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 cast and audiences alike with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”
The CTP offers an annual Winter Vacation Theatre Camp during the public schools’ February break. Our camp offers young actors ages 8 – 14 the chance to be involved in a musical production but without the stress of auditioning; all registered campers are in the show, though if there are actors interested in a specific part, they are able to audition for that part if they so choose.
Camp runs for four days, Monday – Thursday, from 8:30 – 3:30 at the Community Players’ Studio, where we rehearse the show, gather props and costumes, and prepare our set. Our adult staff includes the artistic director, the music director and the choreographer, as well as teen student assistants who act as stage managers, set painters, costumers, and all-round Girl and Boy Fridays!
The final day of camp is held at our performance venue (most recently at Pembroke Academy’s theatre); campers follow the same time schedule, arriving at the theatre at 8:30, and we have a full day to put our show on stage with lights and sound. We have a pizza party for dinner, get into costume, and end the week with a final free show for family and friends on Friday evening!
Registration forms are typically available online, near the end of December, to download or email to the director. An email announcement also goes out around this time to all on the CTP’s email list; if you would like to be added to this list, please contact director Karen Braz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost for the Winter Vacation Theatre Camp is $175.00 for Players’ members, $190.00 for non-members.
