HENRY — The River Valley Players youth theater group will present their production of Dreamworks' "Madagascar Jr." on Friday, July 19, Saturday, July 20, and Sunday, July 21, at the St. John XXIII Community Center located at 1301 Second St. in Henry.

Not to be content with life in blissful captivity, Marty, the zebra, follows up on his curiosity to explore the outside world. Aided by his friends Alex, the lion; Gloria, the hippo; Melman, the giraffe; and a group of zany penguins, they plot their escape from the zoo to embark on an unforgettable journey.

Based on the DreamWorks animated motion picture, "Madagascar Jr." is presented through special permission from Music Theatre International. Friday and Saturday performances will be at 7:30 p.m., while the Sunday performance will begin at 1:30 p.m. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the performance. The production is partially funded by a grant from the Sun Foundation, and the Illinois Arts Council. Tickets are $15 and are available by calling 309-238-7878 or online at www.rvphenry.org.
