The Secret Garden, based on the beloved children’s classic by Frances Hodgson Burnett, is a magical musical by Pulitzer prize winners Marsha Norman and Lucy Simon.
The story is set in the early years of the 20th century. When Mary Lennox is orphaned by an epidemic in India when she is eleven years old, she is sent back to Yorkshire, England, to live in the household of an eccentric uncle and his bedridden son. After discovering her aunt’s forgotten garden, she uncovers what was the heart of this home, and in doing so, family sorrows are healed and life is renewed for everyone. From the same creative team that produced Les Misérables, The Secret Garden is a touching story with beautiful music that will captivate the whole family.
The Secret Garden is a timeless tale of a special place where magic, hope and love grow…a story to charm all generations.
Selena Forsyth of Northumberland Today wrote that ” The Secret Garden is bloomin’ wonderful”. Read her review.
