Matt Terry will take on the role of Alex The Lion as part of this UK and Ireland tour and he is so excited for us to see the stage adaption.
He said, ''I am so excited to be making my acting debut in the brand-new production, Madagascar The Musical. It’s a childhood memory for all of us! I can’t wait to be playing the lead role of Alex and bringing him to life. Expect incredible costume, set and cast. And the music is immense! It will be an awesome night for everyone to enjoy. See you all there.''
He will be joining the rest of the cast including Antoine Murray-Straughan, Timmika Ramsay, Jamie Lee-Morgan, Shane McDaid, Laura Johnson, Jessica Niles, Victoria Boden, Matthew Pennington and Darren John.
The show which is based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, follows all of your favourite 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 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 until Marty makes his escape - with the help of some prodigious penguins.
Directed by award winning Kirk Jameson with choreography from Fabian Aloise, this wacky adventure is something that everyone in the family will enjoy.
