Tarzan: the Mu­si­cal for the phe­nom­e­nal set alone.

An ab­so­lute vi­sion with jun­gle huts, wa­ter­falls, palm trees and rocks in which a cast of thou­sands scam­pered as apes, it was ar­guably one of the best sets in Man­durah Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre’s 21-year his­tory.

An in­fant boy is washed up on the shores of west Africa and is raised by go­ril­las un­til a hu­man ex­pe­di­tion treks into his tribe’s ter­ri­tory and causes plenty of trou­ble.

Cos­tumes were sub­tle with imag­i­na­tive make-up rather than an­i­mal masks and heaven only knows where di­rec­tor Karen Fran­cis found so many lithe per­form­ers able to scurry at speed on hands and feet and leap from rock to rock.
