Lions, lemurs, zebras and more will soon take over LaGrange High School.
It's all for "Madagascar Jr. the Musical."
Evan Seago, an actor in the show, fell in love with theater after his first performance at LaGrange High School six years ago.
Now, not only is he the lead in this year's musical, but he's also looking forward to a bright future in the industry.
Seago said, "A few weeks ago, I went to New York to audition for the American Music and Dramatic Academy in New York. I auditioned on Jan. 29 and two weeks later, I got an email saying I had been accepted, and got a $5,000 scholarship so I was on Cloud Nine."
All the student performers have put months of hard work into the show,
Director Shelly Buller said, "They started in August and basically we have the audition process. Then we go into vocals, where they learn all the material; then we work with a local choreographer. They learn all the dance moves. I teach them all the staging, the blocking, the dialogue and it all just comes together and it really makes for a great experience for the kids."
Over the next four days, the students will perform for approximately 7,000 kids around Calcasieu Parish.
Show dates are 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Saturday, March 18 and 2 p.m. Sunday, March 19.
Tickets are $7 per person and can be purchased at the door.
