Tarzan was one of Dos Pueblos Theatre Company's FIRST Disney pilot shows! Dos Pueblos is one of only a handful of schools across the country granted special permission by Disney to present a pilot high school production of Tarzan® the Musical. As part of the creation process the students took part in a week-long movement workshop with acclaimed movement specialist Charles Donlon, who worked with students on creating a believable physicality for gorillas. Additionally the DP Theatre Company, partnered with the Santa Barbara Zoo, who generously hosted the cast for a gorilla viewing and discussion. In conjunction with the Zoo, students raised community awareness about endangered species like the gorillas with informational tables in the lobby and a cell phone recycling program.
