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. The musical is based on the Disney cartoon by the same name.

Ensemble - Apes; Expedition Crew; Flowers ; Foliage; Spider; etc. There are a variety of roles available, and all characters have significant time on stage.
Telegrammers - Telegrammers perform a short song/dance before Act One and Act Two, and deliver "telegrams" (handwritten personal messages to cast/crew members) during Intermission. Telegrammers get a chance to see what it's like to be involved in a C.R.O.W. show, but don't have to come to as many rehearsals.
