6/28 The Secret Garden
This TUESDAY, June 28th, we’ll be holding the next Musical Theater Symposium and reading THE SECRET GARDEN by Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon.*
*Please note, admission is FREE and audience members are encouraged to SING ALONG and participate!!
Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved victorian classic, “The Secret Garden,” blossoms anew in this enchanting musical by Pulitzer Prize-winner Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon. When young Mary Lennox loses her parents to a cholera outbreak in India, she is sent to live with her uncle, hermit Archibald Craven, who lives in an imposing, secluded manor on the British heath. When Mary discovers a hidden garden, locked shut and overgrown with vines, stubborn Mary is determined to revive the beauty that once was. Surrounded by spirits from the past, who both warn and welcome her, determined Mary begins to peel away the layers of sadness that cover the house and the garden, showing us the power that “one small girl” can have when she “wants things to grow.”
