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. Need all ages – most roles require strong singing and dancing.
Performance dates at the Kitsap Forest Theater are July 29-30, August 5-6, 12-13; 19-20. All shows are at 2:00 pm. There is a required preview performance on Friday, July 28.
Rehearsals start June 5. Weeknight rehearsals are held in Seattle at TPS, 4th floor, Seattle Center House. Weekend rehearsals are held at the Kitsap Forest Theater. Not all actors are called to every rehearsal.
Tarzan auditions are running concurrently with our summer show auditions: Wizard of Oz. We encourage actors to audition for both shows if your schedule allows. Rehearsal schedules for both shows are on our web site.
We typically have actors from both sides of the sound and carpool opportunities are available.
The Mountaineers Players have been producing high quality shows at the unique Kitsap Forest Theater since 1923. Read about our theater, its history and see pictures at www.ForestTheater.com. Please call with questions: 206-542-7815
