The Secret Garden – Musical 
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. Inside the haunting house upon the hill, Mary
finds a reclusive, long-suffering collection of souls. Since her Aunt
Lily’s death, Mary’s uncle has pushed away his surviving loved ones,
leaving his bedridden son, Colin, alone. Sickly Colin, hidden away in
the depths of the manner, bears the guilt of his mother’s death on his
crippled shoulders. When Mary discovers her Aunt Lily’s 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.”
