AUDITIONS for Tarzan

  • The Teacher Resource Center Room 2 1 North Gilmer Street Cartersville, GA, 30120 United States (map)

*VENUE CHANGE: Teacher Resource Center, Room 2 (1 North Gilmer Street. Behind the Grand Theatre)*

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.
