Based on Edgar Rice Burrough’s novel, Tarzan of the Apes, and Disney’s popular animated film, Baptist College Ministries’ Tarzan uses Phil Collins’ score to narrate the story of an infant boy who is orphaned on the shores of West Africa and taken in by a tribe of gorillas. When a human expedition enters the jungle, Tarzan encounters people who look like himself for the first time since infancy, and falls in love with naturalist Jane Porter against the wishes of his father and tribe leader, Kerchak. Tarzan marks BCM’s 36th annual dinner theater production, and as a completely student-run theater program, the cast is made up of young actors representing a range of majors and campus ministries. Proceeds will go towards helping collegians participate in summer mission trips. Dinner shows will be held on Feb. 28 and Mar. 1 at 6 p.m. for $25, and dessert matinees will be on Mar. 1 at 1 p.m. and Mar. 2 at 2 p.m. for $15. Additional student-only shows are scheduled for Feb. 27 and Mar. 3 at 7 p.m. for $5.
