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 favourite crack-a-lackin friends as they escape from their home in New Yorks Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Juliens 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!


30 + parts for males and females


Alex, the lion, is the main attraction at the Central Park Zoo and undoubtedly The King of New York City. Hes a fun-loving fella whose devotion to steak is matched only by his devotion to his friends. A great singer and actor but most importantly, someone who has that magnetic quality of a showman. 

Gender: ANY

Vocal range top: Eb5

Vocal range bottom: A3



Marty is a zebra with dreams of exploring beyond the confines of the Central Park Zoo and into the wild. This role is for a solid singer and actor who also possesses a sweet disposition. We want our audience to root for Marty. They should be a perfect complement to Alex. 

Gender: ANY

Vocal range top: D5

Vocal range bottom: A3



Gloria, the hippopotamus, is a bold young lady with a maternal streak that shines when shes with her three closest friends: Alex, Marty and Melman. This role is for a performer who can act and sing. Gloria is the caretaker of the group. 

Gender:  FEMALE

Vocal range top: E5

Vocal range bottom: Eb4



Melman is a kind-hearted giraffe who is a bit of a hypochondriac. Hes always just a little bit nervous, but when it comes down to it, hell rise to the situation. This is for a performer who can sing well but more notably, can carve out this comedic part with strong acting choices

Gender: ANY

Vocal range top: Db5

Vocal range bottom: E3


Skipper the Penguin:

The Penguins are a group of birds on a mission: bust out of the zoo and return home to Antarctica. Skipper serves as the captain of the group, giving orders with ease and command. 

Mason the Monkey:
Should be very pompous and is in and out of the show with good lines but no singing


King Julien:
King Julien is the Lemurs leader and the perfect part for a comedian who can sing, dance, act and has intuitive comedic timing.

Vocal Range

A3 - B4



Maurice is King Juliens assistant who is not so welcoming to Madagascars new inhabitants. This part is perfect for an actor who can convey distrust and disinterest while still being a powerful second-in-command to King Julien.


Mort: Mort is the littlest of the Lemurs, who can barely speak. 


Named roles to be cast within the ensemble:


Kowalski: Skippers second-in-command and a dutiful one at that. 

Rico: The brute of the group and can karate chop anything in sight. 

Private: Their primary job in the group is to maintain the cute and fuzzy disguise. 



The Zookeepers: Zelda, Zoe and Zeke. These characters open the show and need to be strong singers

The Lemurs

The Foosa

Servers: Featured dancers

The Lionesses: Featured dancers

Cameraman, Candy Hammernose, Subway passengers, Old Lady, Police Officers, Animal Control Officers, Newspaper Man and Ship's Captain


No role is too small, and each one serves to create the larger picture of the world of Madagascar Jr., so we will cast a colourful group of characters in these fun roles. We will also cast a small dedicated dance ensemble who will be featured in the dance numbers. Dance ensemble members will be expected to be strong singers and actors also.
