The Secret Garden

Book and lyrics by Marsha Norman, music by Lucy Simon
Based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Directed by Valerie Accetta
Musical Direction by Carolyn Violi

Orphaned in India, 11 year-old Mary Lennox returns to Yorkshire to live with her embittered, reclusive uncle Archibald and his invalid son Colin. Mary adapts to her new life by exploring her uncle’s vast estate including her Aunt Lily’s hidden garden, which Mary is determined to nurse back to life. This enchanting classic, reimagined in brilliant musical style by Lucy Simon and Marsha Norman, presents a compelling tale of forgiveness and renewal.
