Join Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria living the “good life” at the Central Park Zoo. But Marty wants to be “Free” and heads out to find greener pastures in the “wide open spaces of Connecticut.” But they are caught before they can catch a train and instead end up on the island of Madagascar after those crazy penguins; Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private, take over driving the boat heading to Kenya. From there our foursome meets the lemurs of Madagascar and their self proclaimed ruler, King Julien the 13th. Julien wants to keep the “New York Giants” around to scare away their dreaded enemy, the Foosa, only to find out that Alex the lion might be worse than the Foosa. In the end Alex snaps out of it and the gang gets together to defeat the Foosa.
Based on the DreamWorks animated movie.
**Sensory-friendly performances are for anyone on the autism spectrum, or others with sensory sensitivities. House lights will be on and loud/surprising sounds are reduced for these judgement-free, “shush-free” performances. Fidgets, sound-canceling headphones and a quiet room are available.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
