MACademy Youth Theatre - Madagascar Jr


We had no option but to cancel Madagascar Jr this spring. We now have new dates for performances in November 2020.
  • All current cast - regardless of age - will be given priority registration for the program and a reduced tuition rate. We will not plan to re-cast unless someone is no longer able to perform their role, but we may be adding more slots so that more kids can participate.
  • To minimize the loss of scripts, please return your script to MAC with your name on/in it. You can even leave it in the MAC mailbox. We'll pass the scripts back out to you next season.
  • If you purchased tickets to the March performances of Madagascar please let us know which of these options you prefer: 1. Receive a refund; 2. Convert your ticket purchase to a donation to MAC. Please consider option 2 to help us offset the costs already incurred.
