CLEARFIELD — The Clearfield Arts Studio Theatre, Inc. (CAST) invites community members to escape the “zoo” of life in Clearfield and join them on a transatlantic musical adventure when its students perform DreamWorks Madagascar – A Musical Adventure Jr. beginning April 19. Based on the DreamWorks Animation Motion Picture, the show follows a group of Central Park Zoo animals who are unexpectedly shipped to Africa.
Madagascar Jr. follows four friends who are thrust into an exciting, high-stakes, international adventure at the very moment in which they start to imagine the possibilities beyond the safe environment in which they live.
The CAST students are on a similar journey. They are experimenting with new skill sets as they venture into new territory personally and creatively, and they are forming new friendships through the shared experience of collaborating on this show.
CAST presents Madagascar Jr. April 19-21, 26-38 at 7:30 p.m. and April 22 and 29 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased online at www.ClearfieldArts.org, at the CAST office April 9-10, 16-17, 23-24 from 5:30-6:30, or at the box office 30 minutes before each show. Group rates are available by contacting CAST. CAST officials are anticipating rapid ticket sales, and sold out shows. Advanced ticket purchases are recommended, as no performances will be added to this production. This production is directed by Steve Albert, with Lisa Gormont serving as assistant director and stage manager. Music director is Mason Strouse, with Misti Bruner as the choreographer. Countless parent helpers, CAST board members, and other volunteers are bringing this show to life for the youth of our area. CAST would like to thank these people.
