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 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 York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to Madagascar!

Filled with infectious tunes, spirited choreography, and a heartwarming message of friendship and adventure, MADAGASCAR promises to be a delightful and uplifting experience for all young performers..

 

So, get ready to move it, move it, and join in the toe-tapping joy of this exuberant musical celebration!

TRAINING & PRODUCTION

Our youngest performers fit into one of two categories;

  • Show pony - itching to get onstage!

  • Ensemble player - just happy to quietly develop their skills in a class setting. No performance needed!

 

We have a pathway for every child!

 

Our RUGRAT Musical Theatre Program is built from creative play, allowing our students to develop their skills in singing, acting and dance in a safe and supportive environment all while working towards a performance in partnership with our JUNIOR students.

Perhaps DANCE is more your style? We've just added a 30min Jazz/Ballet hybrid class to our Saturday morning schedule. Do either one class or BOTH!

FEES & DISCOUNTS

FEES

Each of our Musical Theatre performance programs run over two terms, full fees and discounts are viewable HERE.

 

A Costume Hire fee of $70 (inc. GST) will be added to your first term Invoice so the team can get your costumes ordered and ready for dress rehearsals.


We always endeavour to keep costume costs at a minimum, so some simple items (like black basics, undergarments, and shoes) will be supplied by students while the more complex costumes will be supplied by ROCKIT Productions.

DISCOUNT PACKAGES

We know that the cost of living is greatly affecting our community so we have introduced our 2024 DISCOUNT PACKAGE to help ease the load. Check it out HERE.

Basically, the more classes you add, the more you save!

PAYMENT PLANS

We do not expect fees to be paid in advance each term as these packages can really add up, so we offer a number of payment plan options with our direct debit partner PayAdvantage.
