2017 Summer - Tarzan
Based on Disney's epic animated musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes, Tarzan features heart-pumping music by rock legend, Phil Collins, and a book by Tony Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang. High-flying excitement and hits, like the Academy Award winning "You'll Be in My Heart," as well as "Stranger Like Me" and "Two Worlds," make Tarzan an unforgettable theatrical experience.
Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas who name him Tarzan. Apart from striving for acceptance from his ape father, Tarzan’s life is spent learning the ways of the jungle until a human expedition treks into his tribe’s territory. After befriending the young naturalist, Jane, Tarzan struggles to navigate between two worlds. As he finds his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts, he ultimately must choose to which world he truly belongs. Tarzan is a perfect fit for our unique theater "under the trees" and is sure to delight young and old alike.
Tarzan runs for four weekends, Saturday and Sunday, July 29, 30, August 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20 – 2:00 pm. Rehearsal calendar here.
