Ohio Readers: Madagascar Live is Coming to Columbus + a Giveaway

by Marcy on February 23, 2011 · 128 comments

Note: For those of you outside of Ohio, this show is coming to over 70 cities. Learn more about the show and if it is coming to a city near you here.

If you live in or near Central Ohio and are looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend, Dreamworks Presents: Madagascar Live is coming to The Palace Theater in Columbus, OH this Saturday and Sunday (2/26-2/27/11)!

This show is brand new to the stage and stars the cast of the Madagascar film series, including Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the Hippo and members of the madcap Madagascar crew, King Julien and the crafty Penguins. Follow them as they take an unexpected adventure to Africa.

Sunday is my oldest daughter’s 5th birthday and we can’t wait to take her…she loves the music from these movies (especially “Move It, Move”) and I’m sure it is going to be even more fun for her to experience it in person. :-)

You can purchase your tickets to 1 of 5 shows here.

I am thrilled that I have (2) Family 4 Packs of Tickets to give away to 2 of you – for the Saturday (2/26/11) show at 6PM.

What am I giving away?
