Three Shows You Won't Want to Miss During Tuacahn's 2016 "Broadway in the Canyon" Season


This summer, expect the unforgettable as Tuacahn Center for the Arts commences its most exciting Broadway in the Canyon season yet. Peter Pan, Disney’s Tarzan, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame will grace the famed Tuacahn outdoor Amphitheatre leaving audiences with smiles and memories to last a lifetime.


With a little faith, trust, and pixie dust the Tuacahn Amphitheatre transforms into a fantasy filled Neverland, the dwelling place of Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, and the Lost Boys. J.M. Barrie’s famous story will come to life about a mischievous boy who can fly and will never grow up. “We are thrilled to have Peter Pan return to the Tuacahn stage after a ten-year absence,” says Artistic Director, Scott Anderson. “With Peter, Tink, and the Darling children flying over the Amphitheatre, while Captain Hook and his pirates swarm the stage, this fantastic live production coupled with a stunning panoramic backdrop will be something your family will never forget.”


Magically, the Tuacahn Amphiteatre changes to the African jungles to present the classic adventure of Tarzan-The Stage Musical based on the Disney film. Tarzan is also an encore production. Disney Theatrical Productions first gave license to Tuacahn to produce Tarzan in 2010. Tuacahn was the first regional theater in America to premier Tarzan and to have such an honor. “Disney has been very good to us,” Anderson says of the special relationship that has evolved with Disney. The previous production was a smashing success and laid the ground work for other Disney musicals to be shown at Tuacahn. With water rushing the stage and Tarzan swinging high above the audience, it will leave a lasting memory.


A New Musical

Rounding out the 2016 summer show season Tuacahn will take the audience back to 15th century Paris as it portrays The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Based on the Victor Hugo novel and songs from the Disney animated feature, The Hunchback of Notre Dame showcases the film’s Oscar-nominated score as well as new songs by Oscar-winning Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. Come See Victor Hugo’s epic story of love, acceptance, betrayal, and what it means to be a hero; told in a way like never before.

Peter Pan and Tarzan will run in repertory from the end of May through mid-October, 2016. The Hunchback of Notre Dame will commence in repertory August 2016. For the opportunity to see all three shows with season packages starting as low as $59.00, experiencing the magic that happens at Tuacahn has never been more fantastic!
