The O’FallonTheatreWorks (OTW) production of Tarzan, The Musical is coming to the stage at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall) on June 1, 5, 6, 8 and 9. City Hall is located at 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366.
Based on Disney’s epic animated feature and Edgar Rice Burroughs’ book, Tarzan of the Apes, Tarzan, The Musical features heart-pumping music by rock legend Phil Collins and a book by Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang.

The story: Washed up on the shores of West Africa, a baby 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 clan’s territory, and he encounters humans like himself.
