Based on Disney's animated musical and Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes, this classic comes to life! Washed up on the shores of West Africa, an infant boy is taken in and raised by gorillas. He struggles with his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts. The FRT is proud to present Tarzan as a part of their "green season" of re-purposed costumes. Audiences can also enjoy a dramaturgical lobby display on the rainforest of Tarzan produced in partnership with NMU Zoology and Environmental Science students. 

 

Tickets are $15 for general public, $10 for students, and $5 for NMU Students.

Located in the Forest Roberts Theatre.
