Madagascar Synopsis

Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melvin the giraffe live in New York City’s Central Park Zoo. Life in the zoo is cushy and comfortable for all.  Marty the zebra though would like to leave the zoo to discover the wild and explore where zebras come from. He admits this to his zoo pals but life in the zoo is just too good in their minds. With inspiration from some scheming and clever penguins and monkeys, Marty finds a way to break free from the zoo but Alex, Gloria and Melvin are hot on his trail! The zoo pals end up being caught and they are exiled from the zoo now. An accident at sea finds their boat washing them ashore in Madagascar where they are all now in The Wild!! They encounter animals they had never seen before including a lemur named King Julian. Now the zoo pals are truly having to navigate survival and in doing so discover the true meaning of friendship and courage.

Madagascar summer camp at Fauquier Community theatre will host an exploration into the making of theatre. Campers will experience an audition, character development, memorization, warm ups, acting technique games and exercises.  There will also be lessons about costumes, lighting, sound, direction and set with hands on opportunity to explore each aspect of what it takes to produce a show. In doing so campers will be experiencing lots of fun team work, confidence building, their own character building and creative thinking, Lots of that!! I can’t wait to get started and have fun in the wild with the Madagascar campers at Fauquier Community Theatre this summer.
