The theatre production of one of the biggest movie franchises of all time is coming to town.
Madagascar Live!, the live action theatrical production of one of the most popular animations of all time, is coming to Dubai.
Originally a Dreamworks release more than 10 years ago, the franchise has, with the help of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer and Jada Pinkett Smith, grossed more than Dhs7 billion.
Following the adventures of Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe and Gloria the Hippo, on the run from a New York Zoo, the tale has been hailed as one of the funniest animations ever released.
And now the stage version is heading to the Middle East for the first time, as part of Dubai Summer Surprises. Joining a line-up that already features Jaden and Willow Smith, BLAZE Street Dance and many more performances for all age groups, this huge production is set to be one of the highlights.
Tickets for the four shows, which are spread across the weekend of August 28 and 29 at Dubai World Trade Centre, are available from noon on July 22 at ticketmaster.ae. Prices start from Dhs125.
"Madagascar is one of the biggest brands in family entertainment and Live Nation Middle East has been working for quite some months to ensure it comes to Dubai," a spokesman for Live Nation said. "It will certainly be one of the show highlights of the year and will be a perfect way for families to end the summer holidays."
