    Registration is now open for Madagascar Jr - A Musical Adventure !

    Show Synopsis: 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 your 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 aide of some prodigious penguins - to explore the world.

    Once-A-Week Classes:


  • Auditioning 101 - a class to learn and polish the art of auditioning.

  • Acting workshops provide you with rich drama skills, taught by professionals who know what it`s like to try and break into the acting game. You`ll learn great auditioning tips, improvisation skills, how to work on your stage presence, and techniques to get more comfortable in front of directing staff. Even if you've starred in your school`s drama productions, it always helps to flex your acting muscle with new peeps in fun, new situations.

  • Broadway Voice - a class to polish and hone natural talents and abilities.

  • Let's be honest and upfront: The world of show business is a tough place for kids. The more your child can do on stage with poise and confidence, the more success he or she will have in the real world. Through our program, both in classroom settings and on our professional stage, your child will have great singing opportunities for kids and practice to gain that stage presence needed to look and feel comfortable, at home, and at ease in this very adult milieu. The more comfort and nonchalance your child exhibits on stage and in the spotlight, the better his, her chances are of success. This confidence is a quality that will further your child's success in ALL areas of his or her life!
