"The Secret Garden" is a musical adaptation of the classic children’s story by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The musical tells the story of Mary Lennox, orphaned in India and sent to England to live with her widower uncle whom she’s never met.  Her uncle is a recluse – tormented by insecurities over his physical impairments, plagued by fears that he has passed those limitations on to his fragile son, and constantly haunted by dreams of his late wife. Feeling abandoned and alone, Mary is befriended by the manor staff who encourage her to find solace in the gardens so in need of attention.  In the house, haunted by the memories of all the loss its walls have seen, Mary meets her cousin, Colin.  Together, they journey into the garden and ultimately bring healing, happiness, and love to the house and all in it.
