I was so lucky the other night, I was invited by Artspod to go and see Madagascar the Musical at Waterside Theatre in Aylsebury. I couldn’t wait, I loved it when we went to see The Tiger Who Came to Tea there earlier this year, it’s such a nice theatre.
Luke couldn’t come so my Mum, my friend, his Mum and I headed off to Aylesbury soon after school. We were so excited in the car, we had a very funny journey and couldn’t wait to get to the theatre and see the show.
When we arrived at the theatre it was really busy and felt like everyone else was looking forward to it too. I liked that there was people of all ages there- we had people with little children in front of us, people with children our age one side of us and an older lady and man to the other side of us.
From the minute Madagascar the Musical started to the minute it finished we didn’t stop laughing, it was so funny. The actors were really good. We kept changing our mind about which character was our favourite, they were all so good. I am still not sure I have a favourite as they were all brilliant!
I had been wondering how they would show people as animals but it was actually really easy to believe in the characters- the costumes were amazing and the actors were so good at playing the parts, they just seemed right. My favourite costume was Melman’s, he was such a brilliant giraffe, it must have been really hard work to act in that! I really liked King Julian too, he was so funny, everyone was laughing so much.
The music was great, I only knew one of the songs but they were really catchy and I went out singing one of the other ones!
I absolutely loved Madagascar the Musical. It was such a fun show to see. We came in really excited and left feeling like we had had a really good time. I loved the fact that my Mum and my friend’s Mum laughed just as much as we did. It’s definitely a show for the whole family.
I would love to see it again sometime and I can’t wait for my next visit to Waterside Theatre. Don’t miss the Madagascar the Musical Tour if you get chance to see it.
