The Secret Garden

After the sudden death of her parents, 10-year-old Mary Lennox is sent to live with an Uncle whom she's never met. Mourning the loss of his own true love, Uncle Archibald is distant and strange. Cold, bleak Misslethwaite Manor, haunted by spirits and secrets of the past, is no place for a little girl. Strong-willed and brave-hearted, Mary finds solace in a locked-up, hidden garden, and with it, a path to rebirth, proving that hope can bloom from the darkest of places. Based on the beloved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden's heartwarming story and beautiful, soaring ballads make this Tony Award-winning musical a treat for young and old alike!
