  4. Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR - 7:00 pm
    • The Branson Regional Arts Council (BRAC) invites area residents to escape the “zoo” of life and join them on a transatlantic musical adventure when its Youth Troupe actors perform DreamWorks "Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR" beginning Friday, June 23. Based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture, the show follows a group of Central Park Zoo animals who are unexpectedly shipped to Africa.
      Performances will be held at the Forsyth Performing Arts Center on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24 at 7 p.m., and Sunday, June 25 at 2 p.m.
      General admission for adults and children is $5.00 per person at the door. BRAC Members can attend all three performances at no charge.
      Annual BRAC Memberships may be purchased online for $20 (individual) or $30 (family) and provide additional benefits throughout the year. Visit BransonArts.org/membership for more information.
      DreamWorks Madagascar – A Musical Adventure JR. features original music and lyrics by George Noriega and Joel Someillan and a book by Kevin Del Aguila. As the show opens we learn that Marty the zebra may be celebrating his tenth birthday at the Central Park Zoo with his friends Alex the lion, Gloria the hippo, and Melman the giraffe, yet he longs to experience life outside of the zoo’s walls. When Marty eventually escapes, his animal friends from the zoo pursue him into New York City. After reuniting, the animals are chased by the police, and ultimately felled by tranquilizer darts. They awake, trapped in crates, on a ship, which – through a series of events – is thrown off course. Upon reaching land the animals discover they have been shipwrecked on the island of Madagascar. Ultimately, it is only in being so lost that they can begin to discover where they really belong.
