Tarzan: The Musical - Titusville Herald: Entertainment


Meadville , PA

'TARZAN: The Musical’ – The French Creek Community Theater invites audiences to witness the story behind the Legend of Tarzan, as they proudly present ‘Tarzan: The Musical’, under the direction of Tabitha Gallagher, and featuring a cast of talented, local performers from across the region.  Based on Disney's epic, animated, musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough’s Tarzan of the Apes, ‘Tarzan: The Musical’ provides an unforgettable theatrical experience, which will surely be enjoyed by the young and old.  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.  Written by Tony Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang, with music by rock legend Phil Collins, audiences will enjoy hits like the Academy Award winning "You'll Be in My Heart" as well as "Son of Man" and "Two Worlds."   

‘Tarzan: The Musical’ will be performed at the Gladys Mullenix Black Theatre in the Vukovich Center of Communication Arts, located on the Allegheny College Campus, off Highland Avenue in Meadville, on Friday, July 29th and Saturday, July 30th at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, July 31st at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased from cast members, or reserved in advance by emailing fcctheater@gmail.com or by calling (814) 720-2239.
