The king of the apes and his lady love swing to the stage in this adaptation of the Disney film.

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 "Son of Man" 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 mostly monkey business until a human expedition treks into his tribe's territory, and he encounters creatures like himself for the first time. Tarzan struggles to navigate a jungle, thick with emotion, as he discovers his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts.

A title that is recognizable the world over, Tarzan is a powerhouse of a musical that will be a major ticket seller in a theatre's season while offering endless opportunities for creative staging, costuming and set design.

Has anyone used recorded tracks for this show, and what company did you use. I only found 1, and the cost is beyond our budget ($1000 for rehearsals and 5 performances). Any suggestions? Our live band fell through.

I am in need of a ton of realistic fauna, vines etc. We have a very intimate theatre, and so with audience being so close, we need to have fairly realistic ferns etc.Buying a ton of this stuff new is expensive.
