Ringgold High School's auditorium was transformed into a colorful jungle this weekend for the spring musical “Tarzan: The Stage Musical.”

The cast comprised Ringgold High School, middle, and elementary students.

With the guidance of musical director Diane Ader, drama director Leslie Weinstien, and set designer Larry Johnson, the stage was turned into an African jungle. About 30 actors were transformed into gorillas with the help of Ringgold student and makeup artist Cheyanne Swaney and make-up artists from Douglas Education Center in Monessen under the direction of Alexandra “Lexie” Ley.

Ringgold teacher and costume designer Katie Johnston, along with volunteers, used over 500 donated T-shirts to create gorilla costumes.

The Ringgold High School orchestra, conducted by Dawn Mason, was joined by several adult musicians.
