Madagascar-A Musical Adventure JR. Performance Camps


Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. follows all of your favorite 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 the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar. Students will prepare for a public performance of the musical, and will receive instruction in singing, acting, hip hop and other dance styles.

InnOVATION Arts will take a 15-minute cut of Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. to the Junior Theater Festival (JTF) in January 2019. Students who participate in the summer production will have priority consideration for lead roles in the JTF cast.

The public performance of the full production will be on Saturday, July 28th. We will have either one or two performances depending on the number of students enrolled in the Performance Camps. The venue for the performance(s) is to be determined. Please note that this is a ticketed event, open to the public.

Junior Theater Festival Information:

The Junior Theater Festival (JTF) will be held in Atlanta on January 18-20, 2019. Each person who attends (students, parents, chaperones, family members, teachers, etc.) must pay an entrance fee of $235/person. InnOVATION Arts Academy will collect the entrance fees and forms at a parents' meeting on August 25, 2018. Submitting our registration information and entrance fees early ensures that our group will have good seats in the large Broadway Junior auditorium. All families are responsible for their own travel expenses (transportation, lodging and meals).

Students are not required to participate in the Summer Performance Camp to attend JTF. Priority consideration for lead roles in the JTF cast will be given to students who participate in the summer production.
