A story of love, family, and belonging.

Step into the wild with Tarzan, a thrilling fusion of Disney magic and Edgar Rice Burrough’s timeless tale! Get ready for a heart-pounding journey fueled by the legendary Phil Collins' electrifying music and the Tony Award-winning genius of David Henry Hwang.

Feel the adrenaline rush as you swing through the jungle with Tarzan, accompanied by unforgettable hits like the Academy Award-winning "You’ll Be in My Heart," "Son of Man," and "Two Worlds." With every beat, Tarzan promises an adventure that will leave you breathless.

In this captivating story, a young boy, raised by gorillas in the heart of West Africa, embarks on a quest for identity and belonging. But when a human expedition invades his jungle home, Tarzan faces a life-altering encounter with his own kind for the first time. Caught between two worlds, Tarzan must navigate a jungle teeming with emotion as he grapples with his animal instincts and human heart.

Prepare to be swept off your feet by the spectacle of Tarzan, where every leap, every song, and every moment is an unforgettable theatrical experience unlike any other. Join us as we journey deep into the heart of the jungle, where the adventure of a lifetime awaits!

“Tarzan Wildly Triumphs at Players by the Sea”

“Words — and even photographs — fall short of capturing the emotional resonance and creative spectacle of Tarzan. To truly understand its depth and vibrancy, one must experience it live.”
