Lake Presents...

Take a journey out of the zoo and onto the stage as we 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 the stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.  Roar on in and join us as they follow their dreams; cost what it may. Trapped in Central Park Zoo, will Alex’s attempted escape to the tropical land of his dreams cause him to loose who he is and what is most important to him? Join the crack-a-lackin’ crew as they learn to fight for friendship; sticking together no matter what is thrown their way. Madagascar Jr. might just leave you with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”
