This school holidays, join us for TARZAN, a fun-filled, family musical!

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 script 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. They name him Tarzan and, apart from striving for acceptance from his ape father, Tarzan’s life is mostly monkey business. When an expedition of humans enters his tribe’s territory, Tarzan 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.

A title that is recognisable the world over, Tarzan is a powerhouse of a musical.
