LIVE ANIMATION

The Rose comes wonderfully alive in its production of Tarzan The Stage Musical. Credit director Kit McKay and assistant director /choreographer Sue Gillespie Bolton for every vibrant, sweet and colorful movement in the production numbers.  The dancing singers move with vigor and precision as a variety of apes.

But also don’t expect moving connections to...
