Live character shows from ‘Madagascar’ and ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’.

This year’s Easter Fun Festival at Churchill Island is set to be bigger and better than ever when the cast of ‘Madagascar’ and ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’ perform live shows across two big days.

Join in the fun on Saturday 30 March when Alex the Lion learns how to juggle and hula hoop in the “Madagascar” live show. Learn some classic circus moves with Alex who’ll be joined on stage by a circus ringleader and some crazy clowns.

The fun continues on Sunday 31 March with everyone’s favourite chipmunks – Alvin, Simon and Theodore. Dance and sing along to the exciting ‘Chipwrecked’ show with fun-loving Alvin and gang. And don’t forget – you can meet the characters at noon.

Just 90 minutes from Melbourne, the Churchill Island Easter Fun Festival is action-packed with activities for the family. From 10am to 4:30pm catch the Punch and Judy show, Pockets the Clown, working horses, plus live music and food stalls. And don’t forget the free Easter eggs on Sunday for the kids.
