Directed by Bill Castellino with choreography by Josh Bergasse, performances are scheduled at the Massachusetts venue for July 12-24. Complete casting will be announced shortly.
Based on the popular 1999 Disney film and the classic story by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan features music and lyrics by Phil Collins and a book by David Henry Hwang.
The North Shore production will feature the debut of a new 14-piece orchestration for the musical. Librettist Hwang is also working through rehearsals to revise the book.
"This classic tale unfolds in early 1900’s as a shipwreck leaves an infant orphaned on the West African shore," according to North Shore. "The helpless baby is taken under the protection of a gorilla tribe and becomes part of their family. When he eventually encounters his first human, Jane Porter, both of their worlds transform forever."
