Tarzan Original Broadway Cast Recording

Based on the Disney Film, which is based on the Novel Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

A shipwreck leaves an infant orphaned on the West African shore. The helpless baby is taken under the protection of a gorilla tribe and becomes part of their family. When he eventually encounters his first human--Jane Porter, a curious young explorer--both their worlds are transformed forever.

Audition Preparation Suggestions for Tarzan

The music is in Phil Collins' unmistakeable percussive style. Another selection by Phil Collins would be an excellent audition choice (see below).

Adult Tarzan
a human raised by gorillas - strong, healthy, but completely unsocialized
Jane Porter
a curious young explorer
Kerchak Hensley
booming-voiced leader of the apes
Terk (dance)
Tarzan's best ape-friend
Professor Porter
Young Tarzan (10 - 12)
usually double-cast
