PaintBox Theaterpresents ‘Tarzan’

PaintBox Theater, a Pioneer Valley-based theater group for people of all ages, will kick off its 15th season with a performance of “Tarzan” in Easthampton.

World-respected researcher Jane (Linda Tardif), assisted by an audience full of young scientists, has come to the deep, dark jungle in search of the mysterious, elusive Tarzan. Is he really the king of the jungle?

Not even close. Tarzan is a friend to all of the wild beast youngsters, teaching all of the little ones how to swim, climb and avoid danger. So when Tarzan wants to brag, shout and fly through the jungle, the older ones just play along.

Performances will take place July 7 and 8 at  10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Williston Theater, 18 Payson Avenue, Easthampton, and July 11 at 10:30 a.m. at the Band Shell in Millside Park. Admission is $10. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit www.paintboxtheatre.org.
