Audiences of all ages will marvel as the jungle comes to life when North Shore Music Theatre presents TARZAN, the musical based on the popular 1999 Disney film and beloved story by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This classic tale unfolds in early 1900’s as a shipwreck leaves an infant orphaned on the West African shore. The helpless baby is taken under the protection of a gorilla tribe and becomes part of their family. When he eventually encounters his first human, Jane Porter, both of their worlds transform forever. TARZAN features the songs from Disney's film as well as many new songs written specifically for the Broadway production. The show's Grammy Award-winning musical score, written by singer/songwriter Phil Collins, sets the jungle beat for this high flying musical, making this the “must see" show if the summer in 2011.
