Strictly TV Star Announced for Madagascar in Liverpool

Popular TV presenter, theatre performer and Strictly finalist Karim Zeroual will lead the cast of the brand-new tour of smash-hit family favourite Madagascar the Musical as the hilarious King Julien.  

Karim Zeroual is a television presenter and theatre performer best known for anchoring CBBC and reaching the final of Strictly Come Dancing in 2019. Theatre goers may also know Karim from his numerous TV credits, including EastEnders, Da Vinci’s Demons and The Sparticle Mystery, alongside reality shows such as Celebrity Best Home Cook on BBC One and Celebs Go Dating.  No stranger to the stage, Karim’s West End performances include Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Lion King and Here Come The Boys.   

“I’m really excited, I love the film dearly, it’s one of my favourites,” Karim said. “King Julien is such an iconic character. Theatre is actually my one true love – I trained at theatre school and started my career in the West End. I’ve been doing a lot of TV recently so coming back to theatre feels like coming home. There’s nothing like a live audience in front of you… I can’t wait.”

Based on the smash DreamWorks animated motion picture, Madagascar – The Musical follows all of your favourite crack-a-lackin’ friends as they escape from their home in New York’s Central Park Zoo and find themselves on an unexpected journey to the madcap world of King Julien’s Madagascar.

Join Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the Giraffe, Gloria the hip hip Hippo and those hilarious, plotting penguins as they bound onto stage in the musical adventure of a lifetime. Filled with outlandish characters, adventure galore and an upbeat score, you’ll have no choice but to “Move It, Move It!”
