Bill Bailey – En Route To Normal
Following a thumbs-up from immigration, Bill Bailey has announced a 12-centre 2021 tour of New Zealand, landing in Tauranga on 25 March.
How did we get here? How do we find our way through this? And exactly who are we again?
In Bill’s new show, En route to normal, Bill ponders these and other questions that this moment in history has thrown up and tries to see a way through the strange unreality of our new world.
With his trademark blend of satire and surrealism, stories and dismantled jokes, crowd sing-alongs, weird instruments and musical showstoppers, don’t miss this legendary comedian, musician and actor.
Madagascar – the Musical
Based on the smash-hit DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar The Musical follows all your favourite cracka-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo. Along the way they find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.
Alex the lion is the king of the urban jungle, the main attraction at New York’s Central Park Zoo.
He and his best friends – Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo – have spent their whole lives in blissful captivity before an admiring public and with regular meals provided for them.
When a group of penguins decide they’ve had enough of the zoo and decide to escape, Marty lets his curiosity of the outside world get the better of him and makes his escape too.
Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto the stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime.
The international stage set, props and costumes from Madagascar The Musical’s world tour are in New Zealand with an all-star local cast of professional actors, bringing the excitement of the movie to the stage.
Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, you’ll have no choice but to ‘Move It, Move It!’.
The show runs for 75 minutes and is appropriate for children and adults alike. Tickets will be on sale from 2 March for multiple shows over 3 days (www.eventfinda.co.nz).
