Spreckels Theatre Company presents North Bay Premiere of “Disneys Musical Tarzan”
“Disneys Musical Tarzan” at 1 p.m. Sundays
WHO:   Spreckels Theatre Company presents 
 
WHAT:   “Disneys Musical Tarzan” Music and Lyrics by Phil Collins / Book by David Henry Hwang, Adapted from “Tarzan of the Apes,” by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Co-directed by Gene Abravaya and David L. Yen
 

The award-winning Spreckels Theatre Company presents a main stage production of “Disneys Musical Tarzan.”  The legendary story by Edgar Rice Burroughs comes to life in this exciting, memorable theater experience for all ages with music, choreography and high-flying aerial acrobatics. 
 
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 changed when he encounters creatures like himself when a human expedition treks into his tribe's territory. Tarzan struggles to understand his emotions when his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts. 
 
It was more than 100 years ago when Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 to 1950) introduced the fictional character of Tarzan in a 1912 issue of All Story Magazine. Burroughs’ novel “Tarzan of the Apes” was published the same year and the story continued with twenty-three sequels. “Tarzan” made its way to the silver screen in several silent films and serials released between 1918 and 1929 and was presented as a Broadway play, “Tarzan of the Apes,” in 1921.
 
The most notable Hollywood “Tarzan” film series debuted in 1932, featuring Olympic Gold Medalist swimmer Johnny Weissmuller and actress Maureen O’Sullivan. Underwater and other scenes featuring a scantily clad O’Sullivan contributed to the popularity of the film franchise and Weissmuller’s yodeling “Tarzan Yell” became forever link with the character. Countless films followed, including Disney’s animated musical film version in 1999. Several live-action and animated versions have been broadcast on television, including an offbeat 1989 movie made for television entitled “Tarzan in Manhattan.”  
 
“Tarzan” has entertained and endeared audiences through various media and ephemera including radio, comic books, coloring books, board games and video games. Tarzana, a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley, was named in honor of the storybook hero and is located on a former ranch owned by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

The award-winning Spreckels Theatre Company presents a main stage production of “Disneys Musical Tarzan.”  The legendary story by Edgar Rice Burroughs comes to life in this exciting, memorable theater experience for all ages with music, choreography and high-flying aerial acrobatics. 
 
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 changed when he encounters creatures like himself when a human expedition treks into his tribe's territory. Tarzan struggles to understand his emotions when his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts. 
 
It was more than 100 years ago when Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 to 1950) introduced the fictional character of Tarzan in a 1912 issue of All Story Magazine. Burroughs’ novel “Tarzan of the Apes” was published the same year and the story continued with twenty-three sequels. “Tarzan” made its way to the silver screen in several silent films and serials released between 1918 and 1929 and was presented as a Broadway play, “Tarzan of the Apes,” in 1921.
 
The most notable Hollywood “Tarzan” film series debuted in 1932, featuring Olympic Gold Medalist swimmer Johnny Weissmuller and actress Maureen O’Sullivan. Underwater and other scenes featuring a scantily clad O’Sullivan contributed to the popularity of the film franchise and Weissmuller’s yodeling “Tarzan Yell” became forever link with the character. Countless films followed, including Disney’s animated musical film version in 1999. Several live-action and animated versions have been broadcast on television, including an offbeat 1989 movie made for television entitled “Tarzan in Manhattan.”  
 
“Tarzan” has entertained and endeared audiences through various media and ephemera including radio, comic books, coloring books, board games and video games. Tarzana, a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley, was named in honor of the storybook hero and is located on a former ranch owned by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

From light-hearted celebrations of music's power to literally move us (onto the dance floor) to cosmic scenes of angelic songs to lively vocal renditions of instrumental music to powerful laments for dearly-loved and now-departed musicians, you'll be stunned at the variety and beauty evoked by composers expressing in music their love for and fascination with the very art of music. Composers include Jean Richafort, Heinrich Isaac, Ludwig Senfl, Hans Leo Haßler, Thomas Morlet, and many others.

WHO:   Spreckels Theatre Company presents 
 
WHAT:   “Disneys Musical Tarzan” Music and Lyrics by Phil Collins / Book by David Henry Hwang, Adapted from “Tarzan of the Apes,” by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Co-directed by Gene Abravaya and David L. Yen
 

The award-winning Spreckels Theatre Company presents a main stage production of “Disneys Musical Tarzan.”  The legendary story by Edgar Rice Burroughs comes to life in this exciting, memorable theater experience for all ages with music, choreography and high-flying aerial acrobatics. 
 
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 changed when he encounters creatures like himself when a human expedition treks into his tribe's territory. Tarzan struggles to understand his emotions when his animal upbringing clashing with his human instincts. 
 
It was more than 100 years ago when Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 to 1950) introduced the fictional character of Tarzan in a 1912 issue of All Story Magazine. Burroughs’ novel “Tarzan of the Apes” was published the same year and the story continued with twenty-three sequels. “Tarzan” made its way to the silver screen in several silent films and serials released between 1918 and 1929 and was presented as a Broadway play, “Tarzan of the Apes,” in 1921.
 
The most notable Hollywood “Tarzan” film series debuted in 1932, featuring Olympic Gold Medalist swimmer Johnny Weissmuller and actress Maureen O’Sullivan. Underwater and other scenes featuring a scantily clad O’Sullivan contributed to the popularity of the film franchise and Weissmuller’s yodeling “Tarzan Yell” became forever link with the character. Countless films followed, including Disney’s animated musical film version in 1999. Several live-action and animated versions have been broadcast on television, including an offbeat 1989 movie made for television entitled “Tarzan in Manhattan.”  
 
“Tarzan” has entertained and endeared audiences through various media and ephemera including radio, comic books, coloring books, board games and video games. Tarzana, a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley, was named in honor of the storybook hero and is located on a former ranch owned by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

From light-hearted celebrations of music's power to literally move us (onto the dance floor) to cosmic scenes of angelic songs to lively vocal renditions of instrumental music to powerful laments for dearly-loved and now-departed musicians, you'll be stunned at the variety and beauty evoked by composers expressing in music their love for and fascination with the very art of music. Composers include Jean Richafort, Heinrich Isaac, Ludwig Senfl, Hans Leo Haßler, Thomas Morlet, and many others.
