Auditions for the City of Farmington Hills' production of “Tarzan The Stage Musical,” based on Disney’s
smash-hit 1999 animated film, will take place Sept. 7 and 8 at the Costick Center.
“We are thrilled to be able to present this special adaptation of the classic story of Tarzan,” said Melinda Sheatzley, Director of the Farmington Hills Youth Theatre. “This play is a full-fledged Broadway production, filled with great roles and an incredibly beautiful score, with music and lyrics by Phil Collins.”
Auditions are open to both beginning and seasoned actors in grades 1-12, as well as adults. Participants may drop in at any
time between 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and 12 p.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday. Many parts will be available in
two large casts. Auditions are open to both residents and
are easy and friendly, and no prior preparation is necessary. Student participants are asked to bring a recent school photo; all other
materials are supplied. Some preliminary materials for
review are available at fhgov.com/YouthTheatre.
“Tarzan The Musical” tells the story of an
infant boy orphaned on the shores of West Africa, who is raised by a tribe of gorillas. His
life changes forever when a human expedition enters his territory, and
he finally meets others like himself.
Performance dates will be spread over two weekends, including
two casts performing at various times on November 15, 17, 22, 23 and
