The Lone Star College-North Harris Division of Fine Arts presents “Tarzan,” directed by John Cash Carpenter. Performances are scheduled for June 24 through June 28.
Based on Disney's epic animated musical adventure and Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes, Tarzan features heart-pumping music by rock legend Phil Collins and a book by TONY Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang. High-flying excitement and hits like the Academy Award winning "You'll Be in My Heart" as well as "Son of Man" and "Two Worlds" make Tarzan an unforgettable theatrical experience.
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.
Nightly performances will take place Wednesday, June 24 through Saturday, June 27 at 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, June 28, the play will conclude with a 2 p.m. matinee show.
Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students, faculty and seniors. Group discounts are available. Reservations are recommended. The performances will take place in the LSC-North Harris Performing Arts Theater located in the Fine Arts Building at 2700 W.W. Thorne Drive, Houston, Texas.
