Willemijn Verkaik (former Elphaba – Broadway, Scheveningen, Oberhausen, Stuttgart, West End) has joined the German cast of Disney’s TARZAN in the role of Kala, Tarzan’s adoptive ape mother. In a statement, Verkaik said “The role of Kala is not only a vocal and an acting challenge, but also a physical one. I will, like all other apes, literally fly above the audiences. Something like that doesn’t happen in any other musical, and that’s what makes Tarzan unique.” TARZAN features music and lyrics by Oscar winner Phil Collins with a book by David Henry Hwang.
