‘Madagascar Live' coming to SeaWorld

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 20-minute live-music show based on the wildly popular animated movie franchise Madagascar will debut at SeaWorld San Diego this summer, the amusement park announced Tuesday.

The show, "Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation," will debut June 15 and will follow the antics of Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, King Julien, Mort and the Penguins set to original and classic rock and pop music performed by a live band, according to a statement released this morning by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment.

San Diego will be one of only two SeaWorld parks in the United States to host the show. The other will be Busch Gardens in Tampa, Fla.

"Our parks both entertain and inspire guests to care about animals," said Scott Helmstedter, chief creative officer of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. "Likewise, the Madagascar movies also inspire animal lovers, but in a different way with their inimitable charm and humor. We welcome these characters to our family with open arms."
