Tickets are now on sale to Van Wert Live Members and will go on sale to the general public on Monday, November 22.

All of your favorite crack-a-lackin’ friends from Madagascar escape the zoo and onto the stage in Madagascar Live, a wild musical spectacular based on the blockbuster DreamWorks film.

Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and of course, those hilarious, plotting penguins as they escape from their home at New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.

This celebration of friendship is brought vividly to life by imaginative sets and costumes, action-packed adventure, and spectacular new songs that will inspire you to move it, move it in the aisles. Fans can get ready to go wild at Madagascar Live at the Niswonger in Van Wert.

This brand new musical from Dreamworks will leave audiences with no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”
