Alex the Lion will be making a special appearance in Eastbourne this half term.
The Royal Hippodrome Theatre’s resident community theatre company is one of the first on the south coast to be granted a licence to produce the stage version of DreamWorks’ film, Madagascar between 15-18 February.
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 - A Musical Adventure will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”
Tickets are priced from just £9 and are available from the box office on 01323 80 20 20 or online.
