Get ready for the wildest stage show in Dubai as Madagascar Live! roars into town.

Inspired by the characters featured in DreamWorks Production’s blockbuster film, Madagascar, its live show arrives in Dubai for the first time from Friday August 28 to Saturday August 29 at Dubai World Trade Centre.

The theatrical show will be an official event of this year’s Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS), which promises to take audiences of all ages on a wild and action-packed adventure.

The Hollywood movies have been voiced by an all-star cast. Box office banker Ben Stiller plays Alex, a lion; comedian Chris Rock is a zebra named Marty; ex Friends star David Schwimmer voices Melman the giraffe; and Gloria the hippopotamus is voiced by Jada Pinkett Smith.

These stellar names have helped make the Madagascar movies huge box office hits. The first flick in 2005 took $180million, the second instalment Escape 2 Africa scored $193million upon its release in 2008, while the third 2012 movie, Euope’s Most Wanted, did even better with $215million.

“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,”  said a spokesperson from organisers Live Nation. “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.”
