The rust-colored rocks of southern Utah serve as a grand backdrop to the leafy-green jungle musical, “Tarzan,” featured at the Tuacahn Amphitheatre this summer.

Based on Disney’s film, the musical brings life and spirit into the unique desert theater. While Broadway musicals are typically found in Salt Lake City, the Tuacahn offers a completely different experience.

“There is no setting quite like it,” said James Royce Edwards, who stars as Tarzan and graduated from BYU, in an e-mail. “It is gorgeous with its massive red rock canyons behind it as its backdrop. The sets, costumes, sound and other technical elements are all excellent and rival any theatres I’ve worked with in New York or Los Angeles.”
