Based on Edgar Rice Burrough’s Tarzan of the Apes and the Disney animated film, TARZAN tells the story of an infant boy orphaned on the shores of West Africa. Taken in and raised by a tribe of gorillas, the young boy strives for acceptance by his ape father, while grappling with his uniqueness. When a human expedition enters their territory, Tarzan – now a man – encounters strangers like himself for the first time.
With heart-pumping music by rock legend Phil Collins, a book by TONY Award-winning playwright, David Henry Hwang, and high-flying excitement by Foy, TARZAN is a show for the entire family to enjoy!

- Gain the skills needed to get ready for an audition in musical theater. Work on your singing, dancing, acting skills; vocal selection; audition etiquette and preparedness; mock callbacks and more!
- Students new to theatre are especially encouraged to attend, even if you are unsure if you will audition. We hope by attending, you will have a stronger idea of why we love this program along with a stronger sense of our program expectations. Our mission is to ensure that those who complete the three-day intensive will leave with more confidence in their audition and abilities.
- Veterans, please bring any audition song ideas (and sheet music) to the first day of camp!
- All attendees are asked to bring snacks and a reusable water bottle and dress appropriately for movement and choreography. Closed-toed shoes are recommended.
Bootcamp will run from 9:00 -11:30AM Monday – Wednesday, August 24-26. The cost to attend bootcamp is $30, or $10 a day.
