'Madagascar' coming to Busch Gardens

A new musical show featuring the characters from the Madagascar movies will premiere at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay in May. The 20-minute show, Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation will feature pop music performed by a live band. It will be staged in the Stanleyville Theater, which will be refurbished, enclosed and air-conditioned. The characters — Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo, King Julien, Mort and the Penguins — will also hold meet-and-greets in the park. The show opens May 18 at Busch Gardens.
