The king of the apes swings to Children’s Theatre of Annapolis’ stage in this adaptation of the Disney film.
ANNAPOLIS, Md.—Children’s Theatre of Annapolis (CTA) is proud to open its 61st season with Tarzan, based on Disney’s epic animated musical adventure and featuring music by rock legend, Phil Collins, including the Academy Award-winning “You’ll Be in My Heart.” The production runs from November 1 to 17, 2019, at CTA’s theatre, located at 1661 Bay Head Road, Annapolis.
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.
CTA’s production features 28 local teenagers, who attend myriad middle and high schools, including Bates Middle, Dr. Henry A. Wise Jr. High, Magothy Middle, Severn River Middle, Severna Park Middle, Annapolis Area Christian, Annapolis High, Broadneck High, Kent Island High, Key School, North County High, Severna Park High and South River High, as well as home-schooled students.
The production is directed by Gerrad Alex Taylor, who also oversees all programing in The Studio at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company and teaches at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. He’s joined by music director/conductor Emily L. Sergo, a CTA alumna who’s also worked with Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre and Colonial Players of Annapolis, and choreographer Jason Kimmell, who also serves at CTA’s theatre operations manager/education director. The trio last teamed up as the artistic staff for CTA’s production of Shrek during the 2013-2014 season.
Tarzan runs from November 1 to 17, 2019, at CTA’s facility located at 1661 Bay Head Road in Annapolis. Tickets, which are $15 adults and $12 seniors, military and kids 12 and under, and can be purchased online at CTA.ticketleap.com.
