    This is the last weekend to catch the high flying action of the GREAT Children's Theatre production of Tarzan. This play features all of the music from the classic Disney film, and aerial effects. The actors fly across the stage on vines as the story of Tarzan is told. Director Jon Legg says a highlight of the flying effects is at the start of act two. "We start with Trashing the Camp," says Legg, "We've got Turk flying through the scene a bunch of times. He's rolling upside down, he's tipping on his side, he's waving things in the air, it looks like he's just holding onto the rope with his feet." Below is a video on how the backstage crew and the actors work together to perform the aerial stunts. Tickets for the show are $12 for season members, $14 for students/children, $18 for seniors/educators/military, and $22 for adults.
