Disney's Tarzan at Tuacahn Amphitheatre 2010

The jungle will come to life in the desert when Tuacahn Amphitheatre in Ivins, Utah presents the regional premiere of Tarzan-the Broadway musical based on the popular 1999 Disney film and beloved story by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

This classic tale begins when an early 1900 shipwreck leaves an infant orphaned on the West African shore. The helpless baby is taken under the protection of a gorilla named Kala, and becomes part of their family. When he eventually encounters his first human--Jane Porter, a curious young explorer--both of their worlds transform forever.

Tarzan features the songs from Disney's film as well as nine new songs written specifically for the Broadway production. The show's Grammy Award-winning musical score, written by singer/songwriter Phil Collins, propels the energy and imagination of this literary favorite, making this a "must see" at the Tuacahn Amphitheatre in 2010. 

Tarzan swings into Tuacahn June 7th through October 15th. Don't miss it!

Tuacahn's Broadway in the Desert Summer Season Presents CATS

"...a musical that transports the audience into a complete fantasy world that could only exist in the theater and yet, these days, only rarely does."

-The New York Times
"With a solid cast of gifted singers and gracefully agile dancers, this outdoor production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' is well worth the drive to the southwestern corner of Utah." -Deseret News (from the review of Tuacahn's 2006 production of Cats)

Back by popular demand, Andrew Lloyd Webber's astoundingly successful musical comes to life once again on the outdoor amphitheatre stage in an event for the entire family.

A junkyard marks the setting for the annual reunion of the Jellicle cats at the Jellicle Ball as the eldest of their special breed of cats, Old Deuteronomy, seeks to select which of the many cats in the neighborhood will be reborn to begin another life. Each of the potential cats, such as Jennyanydots, Rum Tum Tugger, and Bustopher Jones pleads his or her case to Old Deuteronomy. Ultimately, it is Grizabella's plea for a new life that wins the old cat over. This moment marks one of the show's highlights when Grizabella sings "Memory," one of the most popular and most-recorded songs in the world, to express her determination.
