Description:

CYT Chicago: 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 lose 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!”

Precious Madagascar Family!
I am SO PROUD of all who came to audition!! I am SO EXCITED to be in this process with you! I’m SO THRILLED for EVERY PART that has been cast! Know that our team has prayed for God to help us put each actor just where they best fit in this giant tapestry, and we have done our absolute best to listen and follow what we believe He was leading us to do. Every single note, word, movement, dance step, and facial expression contributes to the beautiful garden and playground that we’re making as a family. We are going to hang out in New York together, cross the ocean together, learn about smelliness together (?) and put on a REALLY GREAT SHOW together!! Our show verse, speaking of smelliness (!) is 2 Corinthians 2:14-16 “But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume. Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing. To those who are perishing, we are a dreadful smell of death and doom. But to those who are being saved, we are a life-giving perfume. And who is adequate for such a task as this?” Lord, please help us, teach us, grow us, stretch us, hone us, and make us deliciously fragrant in oh-such-good-smelling ways! May our thoughts and actions be helpful and encouraging to those we are near.
Now….let’s “Move It!”
Joyfully,
Ann Schwaar for the team
