Alex, the lion, is the main attraction at the Central Park Zoo and undoubtedly “The King of New York City.” He’s a fun-loving fella whose devotion to steak is matched only by his devotion to his friends. 

Gender: Male

Vocal range top  Eb5

Vocal range bottom: A3 


Marty is a zebra with dreams of exploring beyond the confines of the Central Park Zoo and into the wild. You want your audience to root for Marty. He should be a perfect complement to Alex. 

Gender: Male

Vocal range top: D5

Vocal range bottom: A3 


Gloria, the hippopotamus, is a bold young lady with a maternal streak that shines when she’s with her three closest friends: Alex, Marty and Melman. 

Gender: Female

Vocal range top: E5

Vocal range bottom: Eb4 


Melman is a kind-hearted giraffe who is a bit of a hypochondriac. He’s always just a little bit nervous, but when it comes down to it, he’ll rise to the situation.  

Gender: Male

Vocal range top: Db5

Vocal range bottom: E3 

The Penguins

The Penguins are a group of birds on a mission: bust out of the zoo and return home to Antarctica. Skipper serves as the captain of the group, giving orders with ease and command. Kowalski is Skipper’s second-in-command and a dutiful one at that. Rico is the brute of the group and can karate chop anything in sight. Private’s primary job in the group is to maintain the cute and fuzzy disguise.  

Gender: Both 

The Zookeepers

The Zookeepers introduce the crowds to all the sights and attractions of the Central Park Zoo. Zookeeper Zelda, Zookeeper Zeke and Zookeeper Zoe are perfect parts for proficient musicians and actors who can express a real excitement and passion for the animals. Zelda has a large solo in the opening.

Gender: Both

Vocal range top: G4

Vocal range bottom: B3 


Mason is a chimpanzee with a bone to pick: though highly intelligent, his species seems to get a bad reputation for being simpleminded, and he takes that quite personally. This is a great acting role for a performer who can make bold choices from the get-go. 

Gender: Male 

The Lemurs

The Lemurs are a wild band of creatures native to Madagascar trying desperately to avoid being eaten by the cat-like creatures called the Fossa. King Julien is their leader and the perfect part for the comedian who can sing, dance, act and has intuitive comedic timing. Maurice is King Julien’s assistant who is not so welcoming to Madagascar’s new inhabitants. Mort is the littlest of the Lemurs, who can barely speak. Lynn, Lew, Lee and Lars are fun smaller roles for young actors with bold personalities. 

Gender: Both

Vocal range top: B4

Vocal range bottom: A3 

The Fossa

The Fossa are cat-like predators with an appetite for Lemurs! The Fossa Leader is the biggest and baddest of the Fossa and is feared by most of the creatures in Madagascar.  

Gender: Both 


Servers #1, #2 and #3 are imagined servers in Alex’s dream when he starts to desire meat desperately!
