Spring Break Camp 2018:

MADAGASCAR: A MUSICAL ADVENTURE JR.

Camp is currently at capacity, but please fill out our online registration to get on the standby list. We will let you know as soon as possible if/when a spot becomes available!

More camp information below. Please also visit our FAQs page.

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 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 audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”

AUDITIONS

Saturday, March 17th at Xpressions Dance Studio at 10:30AM

Please note that street shoes will not be permitted in the dance studio where auditions will take place! Dance shoes are allowed.

Doors will open to the facility at 10:15AM. All participants are required to audition and will need to sing at least 16 measures of a song (preferably with a minus track, but a cappella is acceptable), choreography (learned at the audition) and possible cold line readings.

Wear comfortable clothes for the choreography section. You will be expected to be memorized during your singing audition, so start learning lyrics now. Pick a song you feel comfortable performing, and is in your range. When in doubt, sing Happy Birthday! We will be looking for confidence, volume, preparedness and enthusiasm, but the most important thing about auditioning is to have fun! Remember, no previous theatre experience is necessary for this program.
