reamWorks film continues in Ingram on stage this weekend at the Hill Country Arts Foundation, showcasing some of the young local talent.
“I love being onstage with the kids, and seeing the little ones blossom into their roles,” said local actor Jason Rittimann, who plays Melman the Giraffe in the ongoing production of “Madagascar — A Musical Adventure.”
The production, based on the hit movie “Madagascar” and directed by Roslyn Houghton, is described as a fast-paced children’s musical about a group of animal friends who 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.
“We take audiences to Antarctica’s frozen landscape, then deep into the dark, mysterious jungles of Madagascar, where we face the villainous foosa leader and his foosa cronies!” states a press release from the Hill Country Arts Foundation.
The show will start at 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
“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 your stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime,” states an HCAF press release. “From the baby lemurs to the four mischievous penguins, the children really make this show magical,” said HCAF Director of Theatre Laura Tomerlin. “I am so proud of everyone’s hard work and dedication to this production.”
The show runs until June 29. Call the box office at 830-367-5121 for tickets or visit The Point Theatre on Facebook, HCAF1 on Instagram, HCAFTheatre on Twitter or www.hcaf.com for more information and tickets.
