Continue the welcomed return of “Fourth of July” excitement by taking in a performance of the Whitewater Summer School Playhouse production of the charming and delightful “Madagascar, Jr.” at the Whitewater High School Auditorium July 8 and 9 at 7:00 p.m. and July 10 at 2:00 p.m. (Continued below the pictures.)
Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and, those hilarious, and plotting penguins – along with a conspiracy of lemurs – as they bound onto your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.
There is a lot that the kids can learn from this fun musical. Apart from the many humorous jokes, the adorable characters, and an entertaining story, “Madagascar, Jr.” offers kids the opportunity to pick up a lesson or two about the value of friendship, of sticking together even in troubling times, of adjustments, and of never giving up hope.
Under the direction of Jim McCulloch, the production features a cast of students ranging from 6th graders in their first performance on stage through Whitewater High School Class of 2021 graduates with extensive experience in theater — all supported by outstanding stage and technical crews.
About 30 minutes before the performances Tom Ganser’s photos from the last three Summer School Playhouse productions (“Bugsy Malone,” “School House Rock,” and “The Phantom Tollbooth”) will be shown. Don’t miss it!
Seats ($10 adults and $5 students) for the performances can be reserved by calling 262-472-8178. Tickets are also available one hour before the performance.
