Shining Star Production’s ‘Tarzan’ reschedules dates, site

‘Tarzan’ is swinging his way to Sulphur Springs but it is taking him a little longer than expected. The Shining Star Productions play will run July 24-27 at Sulphur Springs Middle School, instead of debuting next week as was originally scheduled.  

“The show was formerly set to go onstage June 12-14 on the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center auditorium stage,” said SSP Director Amanda Brandenburgh. “However, the extensive damage to the auditorium roof caused by the storm that hit Sulphur Springs on Memorial Day, sadly, forced the company to relocate and reschedule due to safety considerations with the special flight equipment that might have been compromised by the damage and to allow the Civic Center to begin the process of repairing and renovating the auditorium.”
